Zvezda vs. Academy?
Posted by Dave Armstrong on Wednesday, February 10, 2021 10:19 PM

I know companies sometimes rebox other's kits, I don't know if that applies here. I'm looking at buying the 1/72 SU-57, available in either Zvezda or Academy. Anyone know about these kits? The same? One better quality than the other? Any imput would be welcome!

To add further confusion, when I had gotten a Zvezda Panzer III, it was the old Dragon kit, but something was different; almost like it was a copy as opposed to just a simple reboxing.

Reminded me of old Academy copies of old Tamiya kits.
