    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    Exactly my thoughts. No masking to paint, especially easier for the inside. And a light layer of future. If it's really good fit, may not even need glue...

    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    I don't see where anyone has an actual production copy of this kit or is able to make any actual determination about what fits/works and what doesn't. I think the multipart canopy has a lot of potential and hope it works. If not, I'll use the 1-piece. But until I see a production kit, I'm really not worried about it. I can't wait for this kit. And in the meantime, I have a pile of Tamiya kits to not finish.

    KA Models F-15 Closed Exhaust without Turkey Feathers

    The F-14A and F-14B/B nozzles and burner tubes are works of art. They are totally worthy and a great piece of AM. I haven't seen a better PW exhaust out there, although the Eduard pieces are pretty close. The 3D resin material is tough (strong). I have no worries about the delicate parts breaking. I used to buy Aires, and they were a crapshoot. Rarely did I get a set that wasn't chipped or broken in the package.

    1/48 Tamiya F-14D

    The weapons/data sheet is posted and so are the covers with profiles for both sheets on the fb page. 3rd 4th and 6th post down. I'd link it but I'm on my phone and it won't hyperlink the page for some reason ...

    1/48 Tamiya F-14D

    I have 2 D(mostly)/B sheets coming out very shortly - 1 High-Viz, 1 Low-Viz. And a new Data/Weapons sheet fit to the Tamiya kit. I'd post the sheets but PB doesn't work anymore and I don't have another photo account to link from. Check out the Facebook page for sheet profiles. Fightertown Decals And if you look back through the catalogue (not on the website. You'd have to go to sprue either sir luckymodel and look it up) - we made tons of D specific decals. Most will fit well enough on the Tamiya kit - VF-2, 31, 213, VX-9, NAWCDC, STRIKE, VX-4, Sunset...

    Aviation Art Su-33 1/48

    So there is no kit now and a load ton of drama?... Timeline in a nutshell? - AA develops an SU-33. Burns people in the process, all kinds of suggestions of shady dealings. Sells kit to Kinetic, who releases the kit. Then decides to make their own V.2 kit, bashing Kinetic for the very kit they sold them. (Forget any legal or moral reason signing over of rights to Kinetic) More drama from AA ensues, but promises greatest model kit of all time. Then disappears and through a proxy talks about how great the people behind the kit are and it is definitely coming. And then an unofficial posting about how thru greedy business and bad deals, and how the Hobby is just a bunch of soulless money grabbing companies that don't believe in the generous and free spirit charity that modeling should or used to be, the kit isn't coming afterall. Yeah.... I want my 20 minutes back.... The Kinetic (AA v1.0) is really a great kit. Any shortcomings in the shape, design, sprues, detail are purely the designers, aka AA. The sink marks in the molding were unfortunate and have been fixed by Kinetic. Ill continue to happily support Kinetic and can't wait to build my copy of this kit, and maybe a few more of them down the road.

    Air to Air F-14D Loadout for OEF

    The kit instructions show possible loadouts but not necessarily actual loads. VX-9 tested the 4 GBU-31, single Phoenix, lantirn and dual sidewinder loads in 2004. Awesome to see (and would make a great 1/48 display). Not wartime practical.

    F-14A correct wheel hubs (1987-89)?

    Yes for IIRAF. They got the original production wheels and didn't get the newer ones post 1978. No for any US Navy Tomcat post 1981. The 'mid' wheels came out in 1978 and the 'early wheel' was out of inventory by the beginning of 1982. Brian

    1/48 Tamiya F-14D

    Lucky Model has $2 surface shipping over $120 again for the week. Buy 2 Tamiya F-14D kits and shipping is $2. Surface can take awhile but for those looking for a deal, hard to beat that. Brian

    Tamiya 1/48 F-14A

    If you're looking for OIF VF-154, I have them sized to the Tamiya kit and they are in stock (at least I have 12 copies left). Don't know what distributors stocks are like. I cant link or post pictures, but here's the Fightertown Decals page link. http://www.fightertowndecals.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=59&product_id=58

    Tamiya 1/48 F-14A

    How, how are you doing this?? I'm looki at the parts and they just keep looong smaller in real life. And your stuff is so perfect. I'm betting you have a secret 1/10th scale kit you're really working on. Haha. Would love to see how you're able to do such precise scratch building. What VF-154 markings are you doing? Brian
