Default Known Brand? 1/144 Aviation Fighters

I found this Japanese brand called Aviation Fighters. They look to only produce variants of the Sukhoi Flanker, the -27 and -33. The quality looks outstanding for the scale (aside from the intense rivets), and I would buy 1/72 but space is limited... Have any of you guys heard of this brand ?

They look pretty good but 144 is too big for me.
I would suggest 1/200 scale although no one makes an Su33 yet.
I am happy with my 200 scale Hogan and Herpa models..

I think they are related to Air Force 1.

Personally, I'm a big fan of the 1/144 scale.

It's definitely the scale to collect if you're into pre-built or pre-painted plastic models. Lots of variety and obscure stuff!

I'll go way out of bounds when it comes to GMP. I usually stick with 1/72 but GMP's are too good if the price is right. I recently picked up Missouri Armada for about $142 new. It's my fourth GMP ( 3-P-51's, 1-P-40 ).

As it says underneath the picture: "Photos from a prototype, actual product might differ". My guess is they are showing a larger scale.

Didn't Witty Wings go out of business?
Maybe this is their mold?
I can't tell on my small tablet screen.

I got an email from Victoria a while back and she said they [AF1] were going to be releasing a number [15+] of models in 1/100 during Q 3 and Q4 at an aggressive price to get younger people into the hobby. Their small B-29 is 1/144 though so who knows for sure? B-29 Superfortress - Enola Gay - Air Force 1 Diecast B-29 Superfortress - Enola Gay #AF1-0112 at diecastairplane.com

They did. I wouldn't wait for any back orders. Some people still have them in stock though.
