      I canít imagine there being a big enough market to support two different 1/144 An-22s.

      Could say the same about Revell and Zvezda each doing their own 747-8 kits!

      I lifted this from the A&A Models Facebook page:

      Not a "rebox", but enhanced kit - we improved the molds, added new spruces (details) and decals (new Antonov Airlines livery - as on the picture)

      A 747 isn't an An-22.

      I'm having a hard time seeing what "improvements" they made to the EE kit.
