Default 1/200 b-1b wltk

This model arrived yesterday, among my favourite military planes of all time. It was ordered off ebay for around $40 USD so the price was very reasonable particularly compared to what the Herpa version goes for (as well as many 1/200 diecast airliners). My expectations were muted due to the price and having not seen anything from this manufacturer before. Anyhow I have absolutely no regrets and would recommend it to anyone wanting an affordable B-1B in their collection. The panel lines are a bit heavy and the tailerons are mounted in a trim-up position but the model compares favourably with rival diecast companies (compare the photo with Herpa's CF-18). NOTE: lighting on the pics was difficult and tends to mess up the colouring somewhat - it's finished in a grey shade that matches well with photos of the real aircraft.


(Tried inserting photos but they only show up as links below, hopefully I can figure out how to fix this)

Yeah if you want a cheap herpa knock-off go for it. Most collectors are waiting for a B-1 that has painted cockpit windows not the 'plexiglass' cockpit Herpa was dumb enough to do.



Serious collector would say "nice but pass".

I have one of these as well and I just want to get some body filler and fill in all those panel lines and repaint. The shape isn't bad though.

The Tu-160 they sell is much nicer in my opinion. I can post pictures side by side if anyone cares to see them.

I have ordered this as well as the herpa's b-1 I will try to take a photo of them side by side once they both arrived. I got mine for roughly $32.

Okay, I have them both. I'll post in a quick few due that I can't directly post without reaching 3 posts
