Default Sukhoi SU-34 by Terebo 1:72

hi all. managed to grab one of these beauties. good price too!
all in all very satisfied with my purchase. one day i will get a hobbymaster fighter just to compare the quality haha. the Su-34 is a huge fighter/bomber but the sr-71 is still bigger!
just an extra question, people say the centurywings sr-71 has a totally wrong engine intake right? i have tried looking at pictures but i cannot tell what is wrong. can anyone briefly elaborate please?

Looks like you got lucky with QC on your Su-34. I had to return both that I managed to get due to horrible oversprays on one and missing parts on the other one. The issue with CW SR-71 is that the intake cones should be angled slightly inwards, towards the fuselage, not straight, like CW did.

ouh okay. i do not know why but my eyes cant see the engine cone problem on the century wings sr-71 as being something of a major flaw in the model. it is a very subtle thing. the neck gap on the CW sr-71 however, is really obvious.

i have heard that terebo models dont really have good QC. but yes the unit i got doesnt seem to have any major flaws (other than one of the pilot seats being glued slightly off-centre haha)

right you are about that seam gap. but between the platypus and the blackbird, i reckon the blackbird still holds the edge in a zombie apocalypse...

very nice su 34. I have the same one from Terebo and mine looks the same as yours with no major issues. I quite like it and plan to build one using kit from Trumpeter.

yes very nice. one thing i noticed is that yes it is diecast metal, but diecast airliners in 1:200 are heavier for their size than diecast military planes in 1:72

best military plane of all definitely! even in my photo up there, the sr-71 which is decades older than the su-34, still looks like it is more modern than the su-34

remember the time when you had in hand the blackbird card from the top trumps military aircraft pack? that's how awesome the bird truly was! it still holds the speed and altitude record, doesn't it?

I beg to differ. The, as you term it, "neck gap" is very obvious but it is an artifact of it's being a diecast model. They all have joints, gaps etc. None of us like them, they're not on the real thing, but we have to live with them. Of course some are worse than others, but they are an unavoidable part of collecting diecast.

On the other hand the spikes are obvious to anyone who knows Blackbirds. It's not a subtle thing like a slightly mis-shaped nose or canopy, and it wasn't unavoidable. Those of us desperate for a diecast Blackbird have managed to overlook them to varying degrees. But they're still obviously pointing the wrong way. CW got it wrong - like they also did on their A-6 and F-8 intakes.

neck gap... airforce 1's attempt did away with that.

angled spikes... airforce 1 did them.

does that make airforce 1's attempt superior to century wing's?

if im not mistaken, the sr71 still holds the speed record for any air breathing manned aircraft, but it was either a mig-25 or a mig-31, that holds the altitude record (123,000 feet)

i guess my eyes are still not trained enough to tell the difference haha. i probably need to hold the CW SR71 in my own hands to be able to discern the problem

my bad. yeah, the foxbat has the distinction of holding the altitude record set way back in august 1977. coincidentally the blackbird's speed record was achieved just over a year before in july 1976! that's like over 40 years ago, mate!

Some have said so

I know they have other problems but I haven't had the chance to see one in the flesh yet.

i haven't seen one up close either but without that neck gap, i'm guessing that it'll make a better hacking weapon during a zombie apocalypse than century wing's effort. the century wing's effort may just fall apart even before it makes contact with any zombie

so both speed and altitude records were set at nearly the same time, and 4 decades later still remains unbroken? whyyyy

IIRC the Blackbird's altitude mark is the highest for sustained horizontal atmospheric flight, wheras the Foxbat is boom and zoom.

Jst picked one of the Tebebo SU-34's up on eBay myself. Along with the HM Mig23 and 25 and the SU-35 coming to me this month. So will make for a great modern Russian Air Force display. And the HM SU-27 that should arrive in the beginning of 2018. A pretty good start to the collection. Really happy to see Hobby Master tackling these models now.

definitely more than just token interest in the russian birds, contrary to what some people would have hobbymaster believe

I have posted for the last few years, HM should branch out to the Russian birds, makes sense given they are having issues with finding US and allied liveries that will sell to a market niche (US allied models) that is filling out. I would like to see the more modern aircraft along with European designs myself.
I also think HM would be wise to listen to their top selling countries as well what liveries the customers want. Along with spending the time to do them correctly. But that has been discussed many times elsewhere already.

Actually, I did not advocate for the Vigi. I tended to push for USAF aircraft and NASA aircraft. I would support others models most of the time as I would hope they support my likes as well. Generally, most such pushes are not out of the realm of consideration.
I do question HM's ear in regards to certain decisions on national liveries as well the expertise of some given the horrid paint color decisions some have stubbornly smurfally pushed. But again, another thread gone over before.

HM has covered most of the US aircraft they can with multiple livery schemes, so I expect that William has considered this for quite some time, especially with other manufactures corning those niche markets. HM has the ability to make such better, so it's worth the pursuit. It will be interesting to see how Calibre affects HM's market niche grab in the future though.

no... no... monsieur trip, i didn't mean you. we all know who was pushing for the vigi and all we see is multiple dupes then zilch. hm must've been kicking themselves just to please someone. hm must've listened to wrong advice when they said not too long ago that russian birds don't sell... or mebbe someone wanted is to think they don't. either water under the bridge. bring on 'em ruskies!

Decided to ask William about The mighty Platypus (aka Su-34):

Hello Michal,

Su-34 is very unique and cool.

We will make a deep thought of it for 2018.

William

To me, that seems like good news!
