True.  Either way, from the decal range, me thinks an A isn't far off anyway.

Apparently there's a new company by the name of Kitty Hawk. Their first kit will be a 1/48 F-94C Starfire!  :icon_surprised: LINK!




Modelingmadness has a build review
Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Wrote to Kitty Hawk suggesting they look at doing F-90, B-51, P-67.
Replied - thanks they will look into it.

CyberModeler has posted several images showing the kit contents in the Kitty Hawk Models 1/48th scale F-35B Lightning II.  Additional images I should be available as soon as the kits are shipped and made available on the store shelves until then we will have to get by with this latest tease from Michael Benolkin.  Not sure if Michael took images of the kit or the images were provided by Kitty Hawk Models. 

Click on image or html above or the image below to see the rest of the images at CyberModeler

Hard to tell from these photos just how pronounced it is, but I am a tad concerned that the panel lines might be a bit overdone on this kit.  It almost has a crude toy like appearance...or am I just being too harsh?

Do you mean the slightly raised sections on the surfaces? What they called "boiler plating" on the 1/48 Hasegawa F-22? Hasgawa caught a lot of flak for that, even though it's not that exaggerated (LINK  <-- Warning! BIG pic!) under certain lighting conditions.

I suppose the shiny plastic adds to that effect and on the real deal, painted and flat-coated, it won't look all that bad. As turned out to be the case in Hasegawa's Raptor.
Cheers,
Moritz
