    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    "The big F-14 lovers wont touch it...that will hurt them massively." Surely, sales will depend on the quality (or otherwise) of the kit once it is actually released, rather than on the thousands of comments made before that date...........

    ..................... unless the modeller wants to show flaps & slats deployed.

    "The Pride of Darwin" markings would be a superb addition to the sheet, if there's room. I would definitely build that option.
  5. Decals for these early airframes would be awesome ! Which kit would be the best starting point to build the prototype Hornet in 1:48 ?

    Dangers of Vallejo Model Color Line

    Do other paint manufacturers not use Cadmium then ? Just seems unnecessary to single out any one manufacturer, as if breathing in fumes from other paints is safe - which it is obviously not. It's not as if we don't already know to use protection when spraying............. and we don't drink the stuff!

    Why is this post still pinned ? Surprised Vallejo haven't sued.

    I think I prefer the thread to be 'skewed' away from its usual direction.............. or just re-locked.

    Their latest FB update: "We are working out to roll out the F-16XL2 by March (a slight delayed from Jan 2019). All we can say we will have full new tooled subject release in mid 2019"

    57th FIS F-15D from Hasegawa P22/07022 kit ?

    There's some good historical images on that site, with the 57th FIS Phantoms looking beautiful. Still struggling to find many images of ZZ or AK Eagles carrying CFTs, tough.

    Thanks, Murph. Those images will come in handy.

    57th FIS F-15D from Hasegawa P22/07022 kit ?

    Indeed, I was being lazy by referring to CFTs in the A/A configuration as FAST-packs. Images of light grey Eagles wearing CFTs seem very hard to find. I have found a single image of a ZZ Eagle configured with CFTs and another of Edward AFB's F-15D Glamorous Glennis. Anyone know where I might find more images to use as build references ?

    57th FIS F-15D from Hasegawa P22/07022 kit ?

    Thanks Mungo. Looking at the kit parts, the main gear doors don't appear to be bulged, so it seems that Hasegawa re-used their F-15D sprues and just added the FAST-packs and weapons to approximate an E-model. Apart from the 57th FIS, did/do any other F-15 unit regularly use FAST-packs ?
  15. I believe this kit has the correct FAST-pack to build this project, but wondering what else I should look out for ? All help appreciated, thanks.
