Default Teer bo brand, related to Witty?

Has anybody own any of these Teer Bo brand?
Are they any good?
Referring to China Taobao website, they have make some models on the
Flankers very similar to Gaincorp.
Are they related to Witty Wings? or Gaincorp?

I found a link here below where it shows a Teer Bo F-15E but when you
scroll down, you find pics of the Witty F-15E. You may use google chrome to translate to english.

Maybe members from China can advise?
Thanks.

They also make the SU34 similar to the one by gaincorp.
Quite confused whether they are dealer or manufacturer.
In another website AliExpress, it is called Teer Bo.

Similarly for the F15E as shown im my earlier link, it says Terebo but
pics show a Witty packing.
More confused now.

This is the link from Taobao.com
http://detail.tmall.com/item.htm?spm...id=&abbucket=7

If you know someone from China, it will be much easier to buy and ship to you at actual shipping cost, or get a Taobao agent to do it but of course the charges are sky high.

If these are being remanufactured, then some enterprising individual will put them on ebay soon enough. Word to the wise, if you're sittng on "rare" gaincorp su34s it may be a good time to dump them on ebay and get what you can.

this one presumably is some unpainted prototype?




with missiles and synchronized dancing carrier crew members? while from the image i posted above it looks semi-ok, from the other images available it seems that it belongs with the yellow gnat and the other failed yellow toy-like diecast out there.



yellow is a hard color to get right, but it's not impossible. HM at their best has done it brilliantly (even if you dont care for the particular livery, as a model the below is superb)

Firstly wow, that is a bargain, whoever makes it, so long as it no worse then Gaincorp, yeah those true GC's will dump for sure

As for that prototype, it depends on which one you are looking at, there is one that this could be modelled on BUT does not have the green tail fins, this is probably down to Chinese manufacturers inability to research schemes / details correctly.

Also what is the ago with the Chinese's penchant for painting silly red or blue markings on the missiles ? If anything this make it even more toy like, there better off leaving the missiles off the model completely

They also make the Gaincorp duplicate of the SU33 sea flanker with folded wings (Bort 86) and the Witty SU-30MKI (302).

Interesting but not unexpected. The toolings were likely to get out and about again at some stage....if they were not destroyed, like some of the Franklin Mint toolings (AF1 got a heap).

Sometimes I hope some manufactures go broke and pass the toolings off to someone else to have a go.

If you are not wedded to one manufacturer, watching the comings and goings are quite interesting from a Hobby sense. Also the potential for more diversity makes the idea rather pleasing.

Wow. Those are crazy cheap(!). $50 AUD when most models are going for $90-$110 these days. Will be interesting to see if someone from HK puts them on Ebay as we get very cheap shipping from HK.

Could these just be surplus Witty/Gaincorp stock that has been repackaged?

"Here's hopin' Terebo doesn't duplicate all of Gaincorp's Russian jets"

umm, the only two reasons I could see that somebody would hope for this is because either they believe a collection of "rare" mass-produced chinese toys is some sort of investment or they want to begrudge others who may have missed the boat earlier some pleasure.

All the models are the gaincorp toolings nothing to do with witty

Seems to be alot of different brands available but they are all the same toolings

AF 1 factory seem to produce alot of these along with their own branding and the former franklin mint/cdc armour stuff.

Its easy too work out as AF 1 stands are the same one's used for the old Gaincorp chinese market models,they never came with stands in europe/uk

What was the general view on the quality of Gaincorp's Su 27s compared to Witty Wings? I've got a GC which I am very happy with but as I've not got a WW Su 27 to compare it to I'm not sure if I'm missing out on anything!?

Best witty flankers are the two seaters
The SU-27 family although imposing are not too accurate in the canopy dept
only one i kept was the ukrainian splinter release.
Got rid of the Gaincorp too but kept my SU-34 which i think is a pretty decent model and stands up well to this day

Well here they are. First thing that took me by surprise was the size of the box. It's HUUGE! I've posted a picture with the Witty Su-30MK box for comparison as well.

In terms of quality, I only have the Witty Su-30MK and a CW F-14 to compare with. And I'm honestly not too pleased with the quality, but I guess you get what you pay for. Everything comes assembled, weapons and gears are glued in place. Only things you can move are some flaps and the cockpit canopy.

Does that mean I can pick up a Gaincorp Su34 at a reasonable price now (whether it's branded Teer bo or not!)? Something to look forward to at least
