Kitty Hawk has released a MiG-25 RB/RBT and here Kevin Brant has a look in the box and builds this 1/48 scale kit.

All the best.

phew, how bad for a new kit... I fear now even more about the 1/32 Mirage 2000

I also have the Kitty Hawk F-101B Voodoo in the works, and while it looks great on the sprues the fit is probably worse.

Really disappointing to hear about all the issues. While KH seems to cover a lot of the things I'm interested in (I have their Su-34 waiting for my attention), between the issues with this kit and with their Yak-130, I find myself reluctant to spend more money on them. A real shame as I really want to support those companies that cover subjects I like.

I'm surprised they went so late into a ,market heavily covered by ICM.
