looks really good, looking forward to getting this on the bench. My biggest issue is what colour scheme to do. Earth and green, no wait, grey and green, no wait, earth and green, no grey and green........and so on.  Grey and green I think has the edge, but maybe earth and green...oh b$@&*+ !

Thats how i ended up with 2 1/24th typhoons, that and bubble top vs car door

I'm definitely going for earth and green as I'm a suckered for the early two tone lower wing!

On the plans, I noticed that on page 12, CMK already is offering 4 different AM pieces, since they are joined at the hip with SH-I doubt that that we will see a HI-Tech version.

 

I contacted EDUARD about them doing  a Color-PE, KOOKplus or 3-d Decal for the Instrument panel, they were non-commital saying they would look into it if sales of the kit were good and there was enough "demand".  ( They did do one in 1/48 for the vac/CA/Trumpeter kits in 1998 but sales were poor and that PE (FE710) is no longer avaialbe.

 

SO, if anyone else is interested in those AM parts, take the time to contact EDUARD and MASTER-MODEL.PL (for brass gun barrels) and lets create that  "demand".

CMK is a Special Hobby brand - they own it. The resin they include in their 'hi-tech' kits will be marketed as CMK if they make them available separately too. This is precisely what the did with their Tempest kits.
