  1. So much LOL in your responses. Why did you even post anything if you're going to crap on every response you get? Don't go away mad, just go away.
  2. I questioned the method used for an in-box review of the Su-34 from Kitty Hawk and got banned from BM. Apparently they thought I was someone else - kept calling me "Matt". My name is John. LMAO
  3. Uh, Puerto Rico is a US territory that uses USPS.
  4. Enjoy your vacation - well deserved!
  5. Just my two cents - I've been using Ammo thinned 50/50 with Mr Leveling Thinner and it's been behaving quite well for me, spraying between 15 and 25 psi depending on the application.
  6. I ordered the kit on Amazon from Kitty Hawk, and despite another buyer review saying he got the figures with the kit, my kit did not come with them. Just obnoxious that there's no rhyme or reason to which kits got them aside from the review kits.
  7. Not "lathered" at all. This is about a plastic model airplane. I can write without getting upset. Honest.
  8. Zactoman - this thread is overwhelmingly based on speculation - I'm sure if we were to count the posts that actually contained information from AMK and compared it to the posts that start with "I sure hope..." and the posts that used the AMK photos and comparisons to real-world photos there would be little doubt this is an EXTREMELY speculative thread. All of the hard information has been provided by AMK - nobody else. You may have learned stuff about the kit from this thread, but all of that info came from the manufacturer, not from the countless wish lists posted here. If you want real information about the F-14 go buy Danny Coremans' book. As I said - the speculation is silly and pointless. "I sure hope AMK does this or that" is meaningless and doesn't change anything AMK has done or will do. Did AMK take feedback from folks and use that feedback? It would appear that they did at some points but not always. It sure seems like the only thing this thread was good at is shutting down the interaction between AMK and the folks that were interacting with them. Further, I stated "when the kit is released we'll all be able to make informed buying decisions". That is a statement of fact - until there is a box with a product available from AMK nobody has any way of knowing how the final product will look or what will be in the box. "If not for this thread and what I have learned from it, I would not be able to make an informed buying decision." - ?!? Ok, if that works for you then good on you! Nothing contradictory in my two statements - they're based on reality and not on guessing or some iphone photos of a test shot on a table in the Philippines or a bunch of hopes and dreams from the folks on ARC.
  9. Rather than speculate on parts and shapes based on a couple of photos, I'll be more than willing to pick one up once released and see how it looks for real. AMK will get at least one kit out of me. This speculating and guessing is silly and pointless. If and when the kit is released we'll all be able to make informed buying decisions. John
  10. Seeing people get worked up into a lather over plastic model airplanes is just entertaining. There's no other way to phrase it. You know what - if and when it comes out then everyone can whine about it and post drawings with red lines on it to complain some more. SMH. Better off locking this thread.
  11. I like your paint work - honestly I'd throw a light coat on top of your work as it stands just to tighten it all up. Use some dry-brushing on the raised rivets and a slightly darker wash to pull it all together at the end. Looking forward to your next post!
  12. Really impressive work for 1/144 scale! Bravo!
  13. Looks terrific Chuck! I really appreciate your photos and explanations - I'm getting ready to use your F-15 build thread on my F-15J. Thanks again for your detailed threads!
  14. Agreed - it's a plastic model airplane. Calm down.
