Default JCW´s SU-34 comes true!!!!!

Hope never dies...



Quitting facebook long time ago, I noticed this just now. Scheduled for January - March.

It really took long time to JCW, buyers mostly gone to HM in the meanwhile, model even looks very much like HM one, anyway still its great that JCWings made it happen - finally!

Mold looks far superior to HM mold, with correct canopy shape and rich weaponry on magnets: https://www.diecastaircraftforum.com...ly-photos.html

Looking forward to more photos and more releases.



No time for deeper check, anyway right here right now I see some missing rectanglular red tampos on the uppersides and missing blue outlines on the red stars. Shame there isn´t any reasonable way to contact JCwings.

I think you're shock that this is still happening may have swayed your judgement!

I think these pictures were released last month. Agreed, the windshield shape looks better. The moving canards look well done, and they seem to have provided better cockpit access from the nosewheel well than HM. However, the pitot looks as wrong as HM, as does the lack of wing washout. The biggest problems IHMO are that this seems to be either a very early Su-34, or more likely, an Su-32FN masquerading as a Su-34. No wing fences, no stinger APU exhaust and no wing tip ECM.

We really should be seeing pictures of the finished article by now.

It is said that johanchan2004 of eBay is the same Johan Chan of JC Wings. It was suggested in the thread (https://www.diecastaircraftforum.com...-jc-wings.html)

...."BTW: if you use Paypal to pay for your models, you can find johanchan's e-mail on your transaction records!"

I have never bought any of his items on eBay.....perhaps someone else here has and do what's suggested......and then share that email address here ....

So far as I know, you can always use the eBay messaging system method to contact him, if in fact johanchan2004 is the Johan Chan from JC Wings..But to actually see and use a proper email address for contacting JC Wings from the PayPal transaction information may be a better and more direct way to go.... IMO

Of course, shocked I was, after a whole year ...

Yes, wing fences, APU exhaust etc. are knowingly missing, valid point is also that pitot tube
(secretly hoping JCW will correct their pitot - not only in size, but also the downward slanting - prototype pitot was only horizontal. Theoretically it could be less of a problem than in case of HM as JCW pitot is a separate part).

For sure APU exhaust can also be padprinted on final model, so we need to confirm this.

And should we go even further, actually unfenced wings and dark grey camo shouldn´t appear together on the same model.
Afaik, unfenced Su-32FN / early Su-34 were built / delivered until 2009 while dark grey camo appeared only in 2011.

Also, we could debate whether the dark grey camo - exactly the same colors as HM did only recently - is the best choice for this first release in terms of its future sales.

Anyway, as you say, more photos we need.

Thanks, BB, I´ve already tried to send him an info, but so far no reply. Definitely must look strange when he receives eBay question about Korean Air A300-600R speaking about SU-34

Anyway, should someone have his email address, probably should be good to share it by PM - not sure if he would be happy to see his email on open forum.

Partially agree with you here Ladia...if it is a personalized email address using his name somewhat... Then yes, a pm more appropriate. But if it is a generalized email address I.e. [email protected] or [email protected] then publicly displaying it here would be no different than [email protected] or
[email protected].... etc. which is ok

So when can we really expect to be able to preorder this? I've been with the H&M one long enough and want something new and better!
