Default Two questions re Calibre Wings!

Sorry if this has been covered already but I'll ask it anyway. So my two questions regarding Calibre Wings are:
Just been on their website and I've noticed that there's no pics of any SU24's, only the weapons kit? So both Ukrainian and Russian Fencers are not even on there.
Secondly,what's your opinion on the Calibre F14's? Are they superior to HM's?
Cheers guys!

F14 calibre wings, is definitely the best out there,

1 calibre wings
2 century wings
3 calibre wings

Sadly customer service is very poor by calibre wings
Worldwide shipping fees are 1/3 f the price of the model....
Others charge 20 usd sellers, calibre wings 50 usd, and shipping takes a lot of time....

But the model is very very well detailed

Maybe you're right, but I only see some preorders about Calibre Wgs...

Tomcat380, I don't understand why you compare Century Wings and Hobby Master because they use the same mould.

Not only that but Hobby Master has a lot more variety when it comes to F-14's. Century Wings has been making Jolly Rogers liveries almost exclusively for nearly the last 20 years. Out of 42 F-14 tomcats, 16 of them have been Jolly Rogers variants. And sometimes its not even from the same deployment or the same Jolly Rogers squadron, so those 16 planes are hardly contiguous. Bottom line is that Century has basically backed themselves into a corner with the tomcats they choose to make. And they don't take fan requests like HM does. They are hardly exciting anymore. Occasionally they will step out of their comfort zone and make an A-6E Intruder, and F-8 or an SR-71, but those are beyond the norm. IMO, HM belongs in at least the #2 spot if not the #1 all together.

Different selection of schemes though, as Black Aces has pointed out.

To Ethan 35
Well I own 3 different models, calibre, century and hobby, and to my opinion
Finish of century is a little bit better than hm, but very happy with hm too
Plus last century cats, you can change nozzles in open or closed position
This feature might come for hm models too ?
