Nice! I really like the idea of the Pucara and Etandards.

There was something on the blog about these being mixed material kits - with different grades of 3D printing for some parts to keep costs down.

Take that as Shapeways have priced themselves out of the market , he will only use them for the really fine detailed stuff like undercarts etc and the bigger parts are made on his 8K resin printer - which IMHO gives better quality anyway.
The X-32 has just been revamped and is a good example of Triple Nuts future production methods - the Mig-29's have already recieved this treatment

Well this X-32 looks way better than the one I have from the old printing technique imho...that kit was the reason I refrained from buying anymore of his kits...if they are now one par with Foxone let`s say, this is no good news for my wallet.

Yep, beautiful kits, I' m sure.
And I don't deny they're worth the money, considering the quality and by whom and how they're produced.
On the other hand side, you get half a squadron of Revell Tornados, Harriers, F-15 . . .for the same money :?

Well I've been wanting a SuE in 1/144, and the Fox One kits have not been available. Hopefully these aren't super expensive, but if it's the only way to go, it's the only way to go.

I agree. As truly beautiful as Triple Nuts kits are (And they REALLY are), It's difficult for me to justify spending that much $$$ on just one kit... I picked up their Agusta A129 Mangusta. It's an amazing kit, well engineered, and very detailed. But the 'sting' of the price could've been reduced, maybe, buy 2 kits in the box... Just my two cents worth. I, in no way, want to dissuade anybody from picking up one, or more of these amazing kits. (I think it's a type of kit excellence, every 1/144 builder should experience at least once)

Ill do my best on pricing as always , exchange rate is very favorable at the moment , if you knew how much money I make after shipping , ebays rape , lost items , damaged items , company tax and everbody else wanting a bite you'd really ask me why I bother. ....I think its just the enjoyment of bringing these kits to the world , they were always my holy grail of kits

If you want to deal direct I can do some decent discounts by avoiding ebay , list of triple nuts is here.

https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_dkr=1& ... ple%20nuts

Im sure there are a few guys that can vouch for me on the board :-)
