Contributor-Funded Kit Reviews: Round 2 Selection Time!


Now that the first contibutor-funded kit review – of Fly’s 1/32 Hawker Hurricane Mk.IIc –  is done and the build videos are rolling out, it’s time to start looking ahead to the next one.

First, some quick housekeeping…

What’s the deal with these reviews? Check out the REVIEWS PAGE, MANIFESTO and FAQ is you want to get up to speed.

Voting for Round 2 is changing to address some snags noted with the first go-around. You can read up on the changes HERE. Basically – if you vote for the kit that ends up winning, some portion of those votes will be “retired”.

Okay, okay, enough housekeeping. Let’s get on to the Round 2 contenders.

Round 2 – Fight!

As a reminder, kits that racked up 30 or more votes in Round 1 carry over to Round 2. The remaining options are new.

Here are your tributes –

  1. 1/48 Kinetic Super Etendard – carryover
  2. 1/48 Eduard Bf 109G-6 Late Series – carryover
  3. 1/35 Meng ZSU-23-4 Shilka SPAAG – carryover
  4. 1/48 Airfix Gloster Meteor F.8 – carryover
  5. 1/32 Hasegawa A6M5c Zero
  6. 1/35 Takom T-55AMV
  7. 1/48 Great Wall Hobby T-33 Shooting Star
  8. 1/48 Bronco Curtiss P-40C Tomahawk
  9. 1/35 Panda Marder I
  10. 1/35 AFV Club Husky III VMMD
  11. 1/48 Kinetic F/A-18C Hornet

Sheesh. Eleven contenders! I think next time around we may need to be a bit more stringent on that carryover threshold…

Voting should go live sometime around or just after the Memorial Day weekend – so if you’ve contributed, keep an eye on your inbox! And if you want to have a say, you can contribute HERE.
