    Hi Nino , How about your morale ? Madcop

    Yeah, some have already committed the irreparable and the growing number of suicides by hanging and attempts in recent times attest it , but, unfortunately for us, it looks like some didn't make up their minds yet. Madcop

    Hi Gänger "Cop, that’s perfectly fine by me, and I admire you not to care. Now, having you pre-ordered, I think you ought to care a huge lot the way AMK is running business, lest that, in case that you ever needed to complain, you be told that the way AMK runs business is not of your concern; this meaning as well that you’re not even allowed to learn what the status of the kit you’ve pre-ordered is, and also that the deadline for its releasement date is subject to be continuously postponed until AMK see fit, without them even having to let you know. Surprisingly, isn’t it exactly what AMK is doing right now?" If I were you, I would have said that " before pre ordering, take care and inform yourself about the way AMK is running his business " That's what I did and I have no fear at all. After that, the only thing I have to do is WAIT until the project is O.K. and the kit delivered. AMK owes me a scale model , and nothing more. AMK never asked me money, they proposed me to help them developing a non profit scale model. That's quite different. Lot of people forgot about that, but AMK just want to recover their initial investment , both in time and money. So it's a zero benefit affair ! That's all. Can you give me another example of non profit model-maker ? So I helped them through Indiegogo hoping for the best. I am still confident that the best is on his way. When shall this best arrive, I don't know and I do not want to know , but it will come ! I have enough much more important matter to be concerned about. "if this thread is a pamphlet is partly owing to the way AMK is not communicating in an efficient way." So it seems that you agree with me. The causes, do not matter even if I must admit that "communication" ( I hate this typical nonsense 21th century word) is not the best they can do, but I do not care as long as the final product is O.K. I sent my money not to hear them but to receive the quality product I am expecting from them. Only the end result counts, the rest is bullshit. "it was Martin the one posting that he would bring those samples to Telford, and yet, he said it himself that he did show some of the F-14D kit last project there. " Excuse me, but Martin never said that , he said " IF I can have the pieces I'll bring them to Telford and... blablabla.... That's what he did with the pieces he was able to have to show, actually not the pieces you would have wanted him to have....!. "You were asked to commit and now you’re being disrespected by their not letting you learn about the last particulars of the very kit you helped financing." I repeat, I was not asked ... I never pre ordered on the condition that AMK should reveal me every aspect of the development and production and date of release. So, no problem for me here. "I do really hope AMK deliver the promised (and accurate) kit within what’s little time left in 2018 . If not, you’re gonna drown, I guess" I told you that I am not interested in the release date of the kit, but even if it were the case, do not worry I have endurance. As for the quality , I still do not fear, Sio is a perfectionist. Could I die before the kit is released ? ...yes of course, like you or everybody else here in the two following minutes, but in that case I really won't care anymore (just as today) So, no change here! "Had better not guess, but there’s quite a difference between being insulted by AMK than it is to feel betrayed by them. Let’s just hope the kit is indeed released in 2018." I never felt insulted by AMK and now you must understand why. I'll feel betrayed the day AMK announces me that they drop the project, that the moulds are being sold to another company, and that they thank me for the money I gave to Indiegogo, money that they unfortunately will never receive ! To be honest , I hardly can conceive such a sad end !. "On the other hand, you see brands like Tamiya, who not only are efficient in the way they announce, but also they’re a lot more serious about the way they conduct their business." You can't compare a "Monster" like Tamiya and a " Hobby family" affair like AMK. AMK is doing kits as a Hobby, as a side non profit activity, when they have free time and in such a way they don't interfere with their main activity and not LOOSE money, while achieving high standard. Tamiya is just the contrary. ( Except for the standard , of course !) Cheers Doppelgänger and stay cool , it's only plastic you know ! Madcop

    Optical illusion, AMK will receive the money from Indiegogo when they will show proofs that the kits have been dispatched to the contributors. I won't quote my source. Amen

    I do not care about how AMK is running his business , that's AMK's problem, not mine. I do not care about the way AMK is communicating, that's AMK's problem, not mine. I do not care about Martin's way of communicating , but I can understand it after having followed the 10% interesting content out of these 140 pages thread ( that's becoming more of a pamphlet than a sound discussion) I do not care whether Martin had brought the last samples with him at Telford and to who he showed them or not. That's his business, not mine ! I just trust what I see and hold in my hands. I pre ordered the kit through Indigogo knowing , by references to the other AMK products I already had, that at the end of the project I would have a quality product and I felt that AMK was deserving this kind of fund raising and the little if no risk I took. So, I do not care about the time it takes to AMK to finish his project. ( Daddy, is Great Britain still far away ? ………. Shut up and swim !) Do I feel betrayed by AMK ? Just guess. Shall I buy more AMK product ? Yes of course as long as I keep interest in the subject. Amen !

    You won't hear Martin anymore, thanks to you all, until this kit is released. He said "If I have the parts from China, I will show them at Telford. These pics , taken "today" are nothing more than the ones we saw before. If you can't see that, sorry, but I really doubt about your modeller competence. Don't loose your time, stop bashing, and go take care of whatever you want to. Life is so short, don't spoil it with plastic ! Madcop

    Soooooooooooooooooooooo well said Martin , good shot ! Very good summary of these 132 pages. I have already paid for it and ready to wait for it as long as it is needed ! Thanks a lot. Madcop

    I only wish that upon release of this model, the future 300 pages of this thread will blow up to the faces of their authors and will stick there for eternity. But I am confident that these same authors will be the first to buy the kit. Quite sure that some of them have even preordered it! Anyway, keep on telling whatever you want , this kit is going to sell and sell…. When ? I do not care ...when the times will have come ! More that 130 pages of fun and free advertisement… Thanks for that. Mr SULC from Eduard , the "king" of the com, must be jealous ! As for Martin , do not forget that this man is suffering from bad health and still, dedicated to our community. All these comments surely go right to his heart ! Thanks for him. As this thread has become more a struggle between egos, I'll leave it to them. A big thank-you to all the serious and objective reasoning members who always saved this thread from drowning. Madcop.

    Hi Mstor, You may be right but , Just in case, how did you do back in the 90s or even later ? You had to trust them ...and only begin to moan as soon as you had opened the box. I think we have become a spoiled community ! I pre-ordered the kit in the first days , I knew what I was doing and the risk I was talking, and all what have happened here since that day won't change anything… I have to trust AMK and I still will , even if I'll have to resort to file, plastic card and filler on a spot or two… That's modelling after all ! I am just assuming the risk I took when pre-ordering. And if I have to wait another 2 or 3 months … it does not matter to me … Even if they keep it shut….I've still l plenty of other things to do, much more important , that keeps me away of what must stay a Free Time Hobby !

    Well It looks like this eminent release is accusing just a little bit of delay. Nothing to be afraid of, really ! Madcop
