    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    I find this model pretty well detailed for 1/200 scale ! Do not understand all these critics ! Madcop

    Yes…, and a laxative one ! If I may say so.

    Hi Tony I chose the AMK kit...I paid for it in June 2017. I knew the AMK boys would produce it when they had free times , so as to not interfere with their other productions. I am still waiting … I was warned...So, no problem for me. I won't buy the Tamiya kit, so simple as that (or so simple as the Tamiya kit is…). AMK are fellow modellers, making kits as a hobby for modellers, not looking for profit , but just looking for not loosing money, what I can easily understand. So I can still wait for months , I do not care as far as I knew what I was doing … There is no point about going mad for a heap of plastic ! Madcop

    Hi Nino The same for me, but don't be afraid, this new kit is supposed to be a "shake and bake " affair ! The kind of model you can build and paint in a W.E. just by looking at it ! Just hope that times will prove me right ! Madcop

    Well, I can understand that. There is still something positive. The longer you wait for it , the bigger your joice when you receive it !. Anyway, Hope it won't last too long.…. too much joy can kill also ! Madcop

    Hi Nino You shouldn't have sold the bear's fur before having shot him ! It's just more than 1 year since I paid for the F-14D from AMK, and I am still waiting and confident…. I am also confident for thisSu-33, and I will have the same patience… there is so much to do in life than kits. It remains a hobby !. Madcop

    Where are we going to ? ... AMK is getting better and better with each new kit, and so does Tamiya.... There is always enough place for quality product. There are just different approaches. I'll trust AMK for this one , as I did before...and I never had to regret it. Madcop

    So did I . Just went on AMK Facebook page , seems that everything is running O.K. So no panic. The kit is coming , maybe sooner than the pessimists believe. As the project is still running you can't actually already have received your "perk", can you ? ( If I have the meaning of "perk" correct) You could join the Indiegogo survey as well Madcop

    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    I know how old I am looking INSIDE ! I've been exposed to plastic-epoxy and enamel paint fumes and many others for much longer than you had ! ( I won't speak about the resin powder I swallowed ....) You very young F-16 jockey ! Yes, my feet are feeling like they were 97 ...but they'll still support me till I go to the post office to get my F-14 in 2020 ! I'm leaving now cause I have to take my different medicines and a little bit of EPO. Madcop

    I placed my pre-order (Indiegogo) on the 8th of June 17. I am now 97 , so that I can still wait a couple of years or more. No problem...dreaming makes you see the future and desire keeps you living ! And when the wait will be over, you'll realize that's it is just another box full of plastic bits better or worse than the other pieces of plastic you already have. So, if that doesn't kill you , you'll start dreaming again about the perfect whatever you can dream of...( e.g 1/32 N.A. P-51B for me....). So , thanks to AMK for keeping me alive !... Madcop
  13. Looks like Yufei product has got the edge on the Cold War Studio one as it is a one piece casting, whereas on the CWS you still have to add the plastic cam. bay. Looks from the pic that Yufei's product will demand far less fitting work than CWS one and looks also sharper. I have the CWS one and all is fitting very well after a little cleaning job, anyway I may also buy a Fairey Hobby when they are back ... Nice job Yufei Madcop

    Zvezda 1/72 MiG-29SMT

    Hello Berkut, Many thanks for these infos. Have we more détails about these boxes. Have we some more close up pictures of them. Do they eject the flares backwards or downwards ? When you talk about some other minor détails, (Internal or external ), are you talking eg about the wingtips of the 9-13 type ? , What else do we need to know about ? Thanks for sharing your knowledge . Madcop

    Hello Berkut Pardon me for my ignorance but what do you mean with these external flare boxes. Are they wrong, misplaced, too thin or what ? I am sorry but I really do not understand the problem. ( I am talking about the "boxes" that are placed forward of both vertical tailplanes ) Do you mean they were also wrong on the 9-13 ? Thanks for the infos. Madcop
