Think that company that makes such stuff in 1/48, deserves promotion here. From what can be seen on photos, pretty nice models in terms of geometry accuracy and quality. http://atticaircraft.com/

Models can be purchased at eBay http://shop.ebay.com/merchant/simsoft

I'm not affiliated anyway with ATTIC.

To be honest I think this company deserves attention or promotion because they make models not available somewhere else, but regarding their own advertisement "We hope the name ATTIC Aircraft Models will become synonymous with excellence in resin models of important and innovative aircraft" they are light-years away from that goal especially regarding quality. Take a look here at a review of their latest release in 1/48, a IAI Lavi … http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?showtopic=171586&st=0&start=0
As far as I can judge this kit without nearly any details, very bad fit and so on that’s just itself only a poor upscaling of the Anigrand 72nd kit including all the errors and even more !

Sorry … but not for me.

oh my

That's pretty standard Attic quality. Most of their kits look just like that.

He does some great subjects, but completely murders them!

Well, mixed feelings...was going to order X-32 from them...would be bad if it's scaled up Italeri...(now it's seems so)
 
To put it politely, calling the Attic models "a challenging build" is an understatement.
 
I bought the Have Blue. Other issues aside (casting "quality" etc) the major problem with the kit is that it is not 1/48th scale as represented by Attic but rather measures out to 1/54th scale. So, what could have been a nice subject to place alongside my F-117 is useless and a waste of money. A complaining email to them remains unanswered. I should be surprised, right (insert Interobang here)

Considering all the other comments relating to "quality" --- or the lack thereof --- of various Attic "kits," this joins the list as a "don't waste your bucks" --- a scratch build, for anyone paying attention to the info available on the internet, would be more accurate and --- ahem --- perhaps even easier to build. After all, every surface is flat, and the landing gear and cockpit info is reasonably documented for a quick visit to the parts stash.
