I Love Kit Question
Posted by M33 on Thursday, March 3, 2022 4:51 PM

Just curious if anyone has tried one of these kits and has an idea of the quality?  There is a F22A kit out and I am thinking of purchasing but it is $115.  So I would like a little up front knowledge if possible.  I think it is a Hobby Boss/Trumpeter offshoot company?

Have you had a look on scalemates?

I haven't purchased or built any of their kits.  According to The Hobby News: ""I Love Kits" - a new offshoot of the Trumpeter / Hobbyboss brands..."

I would assume similar quality and I like what I've seen from Trumpy and HB.  That is pricey for a 1/48 kitl

 

 

 

Thanks,

I'm following a build of this kit at RW Hobbies on youtube.  The kit doesn't look very complex and the builder says it fits great.  Take any build videos with a grain of salt but it looks like a really enjoyable build.  I'm thinking about getting one too.

If you want a decent F-22 kit,I thought the Hasegawa kit was a real nice build.

I do have that kit in my stash.  Just thinking of adding another to compensate for the OC lol!
