The Starfire was an excellent surprise, the F-35B creates me mixed feelings ...
October 2 2012, 9:54 PM
I analyze model by model. I think their Starfire was a great "bang", but the F-35B could have been better and I am highly tolerant regarding scale aircraft modelling.
Looking too at the Hasegawa Raptor, I personally believe that kit makers are having enormous difficulties in finding a way to proper represent the airframes of the aircraft of the XXI century: If detail is not there people will flame, if detail is incorporated it will look overdone.
This strange problem reminds me the beginning of engraved panel lines. Until Hasegawa established standards in the very early 80's, the first attempts were sometimes disastrous.
I sincerely hope Kittyhawk will improve the fuselage appearance of their F-35A and I am still dreaming that Fujimi will scale up their spectacular 1/72 Raptor to quarter scale.
