Just came across an apparently new Hobby Boss offering, an 1:72 Kawasaki T-4:

https://www.super-hobby.com/products/J.A.S.D.F-T-4-Trainer.html?partner_id=9

Quite exotic, but since I frequently abuse the T-4 as a Saab Sk 90 trainer, this is appreciated - even though the kit seems to be based on the new/2nd Hasegawa mold, and simplified - for instance, the landing gear lacks some struts and the exhausts are different; or the cockpit's side consoles are blank, and there are no decals as options.
And at the price tag it carries, I am not certain if this actually is an improvement or better offer than the Hase kit?

It'd cost Euro 71 if it was a pukka Hasegawa kit!  :o
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

*sigh* No. LINK!
Cheers,

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?
