Hello fellow Aussie, Air Force 1 have made a few before this but are relatively new to the market (only 2 or 3 moulds so far) and from what i hear they are good with some flaws, I am not sure what these are but it's in a previous post. UkranianFalcon is pretty good with these and im pretty sure hell be on soon (as he is also Aussie) so hold tight. Welcome to the forum Justin.

Hello thanks a lot for the welcome, yep this is the first time i purchase this brand and pretty happy with it, compared with the 1/48 kit i got, its pretty close. The main thing i like about is is the details and how it can display folded up. But i can tell in some part isn't perfect. Anyway yep its a new brand, hope they release more in the future.

Well, the engines are too low in the helicopter mode, overly visible screws/screwholes, the mottling looks like it was damaged by AA guns and fixed gear is what made me NOT purchase the AF1 Osprey

Well I don't know about good lol but yeah the AF1 Osprey does have it's flaws but it's good to finally see some collector pics of this subject.

I think AF1 captured the overall look of the Osprey, much better then what FOV did but the screw hole and rivets are what makes this just a good model and not a great model.

As mentioned the engines are low but this can be forgiven and the camo scheme to me looks fine, I also like how they add the ability to fold the wings for carrier transportation, +1 for doing that.

Now I'd like to know where in Sydney you got this and how much, I was at Hobbyco in the CBD just last week and they didn't have it but I did notice they had a fair few Witty models, including the Iranian and Jolly Rogers F-14's and the IDF F-16 Sufa.
