  1. AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    Great explanation, Gary, thanks. So why should/does EDM produce a rough(er) surface as has been impugned? Gene K

    Thanks, Mark. My assumption would be that the same one-off aircraft in the same camo was the one tested "during the Vietnam War" -- assuming that the camo complemented the lights. I assumed Thailand because that's where most of the air-to-air missions originated. Would be great is you dug up some real info (vice my assumptions). Gene K

    Mark, Interesting Phantom with the Yehudi lights -- know of any source for the light assemblies ... or diagrams? I had to look up "Yehudi" (DUH) and learned that: Is the airplane you researched the same one that was tested ... with a different camo pattern? Probably Thailand based ? Gene K

    The link works fine, Don - thanks. Regarding AMK response that "All of our kits are with this EDM finished surfaces" -- have no idea what EDM means or what the implication is as regards associated surface quality. Further, it's not clear if this a new process for them -- or whether all their previous "acceptable" kits used this process. Personally, I don't think the sky is falling. Gene K
  5. AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    Hello Don, Could you point me to where and why AMK stated that, please? Did they state why and what the results would be? The over-reaction (!!) by some to pictures purporting to show rough texture on the new Kfir is a shame since it's apparently dissuading some to get that kit. Yes, it's there in a small area (and it shouldn't be!), but a few swipes of a fine sanding stick will smooth it to match the rest of the kit. Gene K

    Rick, Since you don't have the kit and I do, let me give you my impression. The "rough texture all along the upper fuselage" to which PlasticWeapons alludes is overstated. It's pretty darn hard to spot visually, but a finger will confirm that there's a thin patch on the top right fuselage along the spine. It literally took me one whole minute with a fine and extra fine sanding stick to eliminate it. No panel lines were hurt during this operation. -- at all! If this small texture "issue" is the reason for your not getting the kit, you're unnecessarily denying yourself. Gene K
  7. Never mind

    Ditto. But I think he can make "it" public, right? Gene K

    Other photos on that site require logging in which I don't want to chance. Gene K

    Yup, but I hadn't heard the Phantom called "Smokey Joe" as the reviewer does. It was always easier to spot the smoke than the airplane -- just follow the trail 'till you see the white helmet ... and then pick up airplane. Camo helmets made it harder. Gene K

    Thanks, BoeingDriver, VERY well done. (I subscribed to your channel). Gene K P.S. The video quality is really good, but I had some trouble understanding because of audio echo. And "Smokey Joe"?
  13. I now have the Emhar kits I need, but still ;looking for the Revell repop. Gene K
