    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    "For me the only negativity about this thread, is the lack of openness from some fellow modellers. What seems pointless to you, may not be pointless to me, why is it so difficult to understand that people can have their own ways/views??" - We are exactly on the same level of thinking.

    I just would like to point out something. 1. When modelers/readers here raised a "negative comment", it's usually based on an observation on the kit which is different or have some kind of deviation from factual sources like modeling reference materials or actual pictures or persons who have worked on the plane one time or another or persons who are very knowledgeable about the entire fighter jet especially the shapes and sizes of the outer structures, I still don't understand why negative comments could be so wrong. 2. I think the problem with the rear end is still there and has not changed a bit.

    ... first, wrong marketing/business strategy, followed by wrong customer/modeler treatment... what's next...

    I think 2 biggest mistakes they made were: 1. Asking for pre-orders (money) from modelers to produce the plastics, which is a very bad practice; which until now could not deliver. 2. Never-ending postponements of the kit hitting the shelves.

    GWH Jumping on the 1/48 Tomcat Bandwagon?

    I like the concept of GWH, at least you don't have to worry about masking the clear parts glass for the frame painting.

    The very day they failed to announce to the world that they reached the pre-order quota was already an indirect confession that they failed .......

    It's a good thing I never believed in pre-orders and didn't fall into the trap by AMK so this fail has never given me the headache and stress, not even for one second.
