    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    it's only an optical illusion, and obviously it is a pre production tomcat. we are on another version now. don't worry it will be the most perfect top gun movie yet. out by the end of the summer we promise.

    Su-27 Flanker B, Hobby Boss 1/48

    I was really happy with the fit of this kit. apparently there are a few shape issues, to me it looks ok. I am looking forward to your build, always an inspiration for me to do better.

    except for the credit Card company. they are very diligent about these things. if there are enough complaints from the customers about the pre-orders not being delivered then the CC companies will simply cut them off from doing any business with them. I am very surprised that anyone with a still outstanding pre-order hasn't complained to their respective CC company and gotten a refund that way.

    more NASA subjects?

    what are your thoughts on some more NASA subjects? I would love to see some sheets for F-104's F-102's f-106's and t-38's in NASA markings

    credit where credit is due, that is one really gorgeous looking piece of plastic. they really know how to cut steel molds at AMK.

    where did you hear that? if that is the case then why has the ifr probe door not been fixed? the rear fuselage is still wrong and the easiest of all fixes would be the aft end of the TARPS pod. all of these issues have not been dealt with. as far as I can tell there has been no retooling at all. I will be happy to have AMK prove me wrong. I am not going to hold my breath

    Jeroen Burger aka the white knight has ridden to the rescue. as for Darren's comments I wholeheartedly agree. AMK claims that they are "working on the kit" but obviously they haven't changed/fixed anything. so the question I have been asking for many months now, why hasn't the kit been released? the molds are cut, the decals were done last September, the test shots were out a year ago. it just doesn't make any sense. I have said before that there is something else going on in the background, like AMK is the pet project of SIO and his dad owns the actual molding corporation. and dad only lets him do model stuff on his own time.

    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    compare with the older picture here. the bottom of the IFR probe bay lines up with the kink in the radome. looking at the pictures posted from Moson, I don't think they have addressed that one either.

    I would think that if they had addressed the issues previously pointed out,that they would be going out of their way to show us. just looking at the picture Atlis posted and this one posted by AMK 13 months ago, I don't see much difference. hey I hope I am proven wrong, I hope this kit come out and is better than the Tamiya kit. but I also hope that I win the lottery .

    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    well... AMK posted this on their facebook page. there were more than a few unfriendly comments. " Apologies to everyone for my absence for a while. Personal issues have kept me away and rather distracted of late. You have my personal apology and please do not lose faith in AMK. Things are moving on and the Tomcat IS coming. I have had personal guarantees. Thank you for the patience and support. I understand it has not been easy for anyone but things are about to get better. For all of us I hope. "

  16. did the apu get removed from the aircraft, or are the antennas just added to the tail? if you need any 767 references I know a guy.

    these 2 f-106's should be easy to do. and I am dying to get some decals of the 104.

    LUCKYMODEL NEW SHIPPING SYSTEM

    we can go around in circles for days. and you can constantly change your story. the fact of the matter is that I was not told the truth on several occasions. this is plain for me and anyone else to see.

    LUCKYMODEL NEW SHIPPING SYSTEM

    I just recieved this lovely Email from Lm responding to an email I sent on sunday asking about a tracking number. "Your order is shipped on March 15. The tracking number is. Regards, Silvia" so which one is true? your post above states that it was sent to the post office YESTERDAY "Packed - means we packed into the box and waiting to leave the warehouse (China)" so what does this mean exactly? the shipping status on my order as "packed" means that the model kit was packed into a box from the distributor, not that my order had been packed? "Shipped - means we weight the box and sending electronics submission to Post Office for postal slip (leave the warehouse but not arrived in HK) Tracking assigned - the shipping label from Post office attached" and shipped means that the shipping label is done, but the contents of the box aren't on site ( or actually in stock as the website showed) and it is sitting in the warehouse for a couple more days. so let me recap "IN STOCK" doesn't mean in stock it means we can get it in a few days. "PACKED" means we own the item , but it is not in our hands. "SHIPPED" means we have everything in the same building, but we will not actually get it out the door for a couple of days basically the whole LM system is set up to lie to your customers.

    LUCKYMODEL NEW SHIPPING SYSTEM

    I agree that it is the nature of the beast, shipping happens. it seems to happen all to often with LM. I have made over 100 orders with hobbyeasy and only once did I have an issue like this. My experiences with Luckymodel are different. I dont care about the wait so much as the fact that they are not being truthful about what I can expect. I wanted a couple of wolfpack engines that they had so I decided to throw a f-16xl kit in to the order while I was at it. if I had known that it was not in fact in stock, I would have gotten something else instead.

    LUCKYMODEL NEW SHIPPING SYSTEM

    when I checked the status on friday it said that everything was "packed" on saturday it said "shipped" but the tracking number was not valid (shipping label created but post office closed) as of TUESDAY the tracking number is in the postal system however as of 6pm Wednesday the item still is labeled "waiting for item" Canada post tells me that the item has a shipping label but has not been scanned through the post office. so the kit wasn't received until MONDAY? then the status of "packed" and "shipped" on Saturday was untrue? Monday was a full 7 days since I placed the order for for items that were showing "IN STOCK" I could care less about a few days wait, but I have issues about being lied to. I had planned to have the F-102 engines in hand this week for my days off. typically if something ships Wednesday or Thursday from HK then it will get to my door by the following Tuesday or Wednesday. but as of now it is not even at the post office.
