Hi there,

Just saw the review and want to thank you for it. As I'm interested in building a Ka-50, I was wondering about the Zvezda offering? It seems there are no real reviews or build logs of the Zvezda one out there or am I just looking the wrong direction?

I am in the middle of building mine and have found that the fuselage half fit is terrible, especially in the tail requiring lots of sanding.

This would be more of a problem if both fuselage halves had the same panel lines, but since they don't, recreating them is something I'd have to do anyway. It's the same problem on the Mi-8 -17 kits.

I will try to post some images later, but I've set the kit aside for a while now out of irritation with the molding.

Sorry.

Thanks for the quick reply and I would be interested in pictures and your (in depth) opinion, indeed
