    New line: Caracal Models Basics

    I am sure I will do a Phantom walkway sheet in the near future. I will soon announce the first few sheets in this lineup - we will start with US national insignia, USAF/US AIR FORCE titles in correct dimension and colors; and move on to stencilling for Century Series aircraft.

    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    If AMK does NOT follow the general cockpit designs of even the "big" ones like Tamiya by starting with a tub but in stead mold the side walls and front and rear as seperate parts, all the nice little details that we love on resin cockpits can be easily molded in plastic as well. After all this will not be a beginners kit and the target customer group will not be the same as Monogram's in the 70ties (not age wise...but essentially the same guys, like me). We can cope with a more complex parts break down if it brings more details with it... cheers Uwe

    Really looking forward to seeing some of your new sheets Brian. A VF-31 last cruise option would be great, the 2 hi-viz jets from that cruise are just superb. Keep up the good work 👍

    My mother passed, but

    Duck, I'm not too far from the same situation. Dad did stay on Mom while he was with it. But about 10 years ago my brother relocated to the other side of the state. About a year later, Mom & Dad packed a suitcase and moved next door after buying two houses. They left the old house looking like they day them left for many years. Dad passes, brother pulled some underhanded tricks and sold the old house after calling in the junk guys to haul off everything. Fast forward, brother is out of the picture now due to his underhanded tricks. But I had to move Mom out of her new home and into assisted living, and deal with her hoards. She's now 83 years old. Mostly QVC crap, kitchen gadgets, Tacky yard decorations, lawn chairs, etc. She's paying $200 a month storage fees for complete crap or duplicate kitchen appliances. To make matters worse, out of sight, out of mind, she keeps ordering more of the same thing off TV. So far we have counted 4 air fryers, 3 kitchen aid mixers, 3 or 4 hand mixers, 4 food processors. Every closet in her tiny apartment is slammed full of QVC boxes. I try not to remove them, but open all the doors when I visit so she sees her quantity. One of her biggest downfalls is the hoarding of junk mail. She will fill QVC boxes full of junk mail to the point where she's now falling because her walker gets hung up and won't move. I've had strong discussions with her about this junk mail issue, but she insists that she has to either read it all, saw something in one of the magazines and she wants to save it, or shes afraid to have her name and address in the trash. One excuse after another. When we come over, she spends about 30 min in the bathroom getting ready for us. I usually take this opportunity to quickly grab boxes of junk mail and run out the door with them. Now she wants a bigger apartment on the other side of the complex they just built. Nope, no way will I help her have more room to fill up with garbage. When she passes, its going to be one hell of a yard sale to shut down the storage units. Probably will take a rental truck and 3 months of weekends to even start to liquidate. The rest will go to Goodwill or some charity.

    I'd be more interested in an Update sheet, But to a limit. I know I don't want to fork over another 100+bucks to "update" my old sheets. One or two at 20.00 a pop is doable otherwise I'll just use what I have and "Make It Work"

    GWH 1/48 scale Lockheed T-33A early ver.

    Looks great Joel. I am building the T-33A as well, but I am using the RoCAF boxing, because I am building mine as an RCAF aircraft and this kit has the NACA vents that we used. I am at the flap stage and I have no idea how I am going to mount them. It appears that there is only the 4 actuating rods to attach the flaps to. Have you looked at them to see how you might attach them to the model? Your scheme looks very cool. Cheers Brad

  10. I am at the flap stage and there isn't any positive mounting point for them except the 4 actuating rods, and that's it. I was hoping to gain some wisdom from you fine folks. The kit otherwise builds up pretty nicely. TIA Brad

    Hello, no, I had no idea, I decided to do this one because I find it to be one of the most attractive schemes, it's just beautiful 🙂

    Brian, You are giving us quite a pressure in making no mistake for that. Sio

    Keep following our facebook. We will show that soon. Our box art is exactly the same scheme. But I don't think he knew that in advance.

    I have no idea how I missed this the first time around. Maybe because I had no interest in movie Tomcats? Although having said that they would be different.

    Cool idea! F-4 walk way decals in 1/48?

    May releases

    Great! Any chance to see reprint of B-58 Hustler 1/48 decals?

    1/48 Kinetic E-2C Hawkeye VAW-115 Liberty Bells

    I feel your pain with the build of the kit, not easy as you've said, however I found once it was done I was pleased to add such an overseen but ensential aircraft to my collection of US Navy aircraft. I do agree though that the aircraft usually have a high gloss/ gloss finish, a big aircraft to use Wadpole on though. Nice decal choice as well, congrats.

    Great! Now I can buy 4 or 5 of them like I should have done with the first release.

    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    Pretty sure there's no issue getting an AM cockpit fit into the single piece fuselage. You out it in the same way you'll put the kits parts in. Maybe it won't fit prior AM cockpits but someone will design one for this specific kit like they do for all the others. If the changes in new technology work better or different than the old, what's the problem. Doing it like everyone else always has doesn't give anything new. I see no point in complaining about something based on pictures and non knowledge of how it actually fits. If the engineering is solid, then this is really exciting. Btw, I'm betting the cockpit drops in feom thr top. And the railing fits over that. Looks pretty cool to me and saves cleaning a seam. Brian

    His words were "It is essentially AMK-Tomcat fanart" not boxart.

    I am reprinting the 48077 TOPGUN /ADVERSARY sheet with the movie jets. Fortunately there's pretty much nothing on that sheet that needs to be resized for the tamiya kit. The change is really imperceptible unlisss you measure really close 😉 brian

    Nice work! But how do you know we chose this scheme for box art?
