1/144 Pit-Road - Planned Items

Pit-Road have announced or confirmed a range of product they expect to release in the medium term.

SN07 1/144 Russian Air Force 144 T-50 PAK-FA" - Platz
SN06 1/144 British air force bomber prototype 144 TSR-2" - Platz
SN05 1 /144 FGR.4 British Royal Air Force Typhoon" - Platz

Price: ???
Availability: ???

It raises an interesting question that if Pit-Road are intending to release a "proper" TSR-2, where does the discussion or model prototypes for the Anime Stratos 4 TSR-MS lead us?
Will there a be a follow on kit?

WOW! It's been only 3 1/2 months since PAK-FA made it's first flight and there already a 1/144 kit planned... This could be the first PAK-FA kit in any scale.
That would be nice.

The TSR 2 looks more detailed than Cafereo's!

Unfortunately, the PAK-FA looks more like a paper airplane than a proper kit. I hope it's just due to the poor quality of the picture or the fact that it's an early promo version. Still, the entire set looks very promising and something to look forward to!

Not the first PAK-FA in 1/144. Anigrand do one as a bonus with their Sukhoi T-4MS.

There area number of photos of it on Fumi's blog but - big but - the Platz does look like the production/prototype and not the concept design.

The TSR-2 looks pretty good and will be easier to convert than the cafe Reo models.

Is the Typhoon a rebox of the Revell kit I wonder.

The Anigrand "PAK-FA" is a "guesstimate" based off some hypothetical drawings. The Pit Road one should at least be a reasonable reproduction of the actual prototype.

I wonder if PR will drop the Typhoon in light of the excellent Revell kit. Would make sense to me, but companies often seem to forge ahead regardless?!?

Yes , I think would be safer to pit road skip the Thyphoon...and let Revell kit...but I think they won´t change...
They could change for Sukhoi Su-24!! or Su-27/30...and would make a super decal sheet(with so diferent camos)..and this kit would sell at same level than Thypoon...and more than PAK-FA.
And considering they are burning money to make TRS-2 and PAK..moulds
we could have a decent F-16 C/D block 50..with a carefull detail in nose and canopy...
Someone could read this...

I couldn't agree more!
Pit-Road please consider a Flanker & F-16 kit. There plenty of variants & paint scheme to make the moulds last a long time.
