    I'm certainly not holding my breath for this model!
    Maybe 2025?

    "Failure to communicate" does not even begin to explain this mess. Everything about this "announcement" was confusing.

    Thanks for enlightening the crew here. Yes, Bruce and I spent many hours and days researching, measuring and fondling of the shiny one we have here in Oregon. Bruce has a HUGE folder of photos he did himself, along with my own collection I took over many years while traveling to different west coast museums. It is a massive amount of references.
    Now add all the work you two have put into the mix, it should be one of the most accurate pieces of plastic EVER produced....HOWEVER, we know how it works once it goes to the manufacturers.  They could end up looking like those cute little "egg planes" characters...LOL

    To give some of the readers some background on the work that has been done for the next KH kits. A small group formed end of 2013 to look at the available F-84F and RF-84F kits. The focus first turned on the Streak and specialists Bruce and Harold were able to come up with a lot - and I mean a lot - of great info on the jet (photos, measurements, panel lines corrections). Luuk Boerman and I did the same from the other side of the pond and collected our materials. Fate also had it that I was able to get into touch with an architect / aviationist who has almost unlimited access to the Danish airforce jets. He was able to come up with the proper drawings (so, the R. Caruna ones are now obsolete). I know for a fact that reps of KH travelled to Denmark to see the Flash with their own eyes.
    All the information gathered for KH was stored and first other kits would be issued in order to improve and further learn about the proper 3d CAD processes (we speak of 2013-2014, so quite a few kits have now been issued and quality has improved). The Mirages will be the next in line and the chopper series (Blackhawk, little bird, Huey, etc).
    Given that KH asked the group to come alive again, we shall gather additional information to try to make sure the kits will be the best to date by KH. Glen is a huge fan of the Streak / Flash (and so are we in the group) so he wants to get it right. The Flash is first, the Streak follows thereafter. I myself shall go with a small group to the Brussels museum to make additional walk-arounds for the project, so stay tuned...and criticism is fine as long as it is constructive.

    Very frankly I'm hoping this will be a jet and ideally a cold war one. The number of not yet released WW2 major actors is quickly decreasing whereas jet releases are becoming very rare in large scale. WW1 is also rather well covered now with regard to regular releases. Moreover, it also looks we won't have anymore many resin options for them as Fisher stopped production, Hph is also interested for some time in WW2 topics and LEM is focusing now on smaller planes...
