    GWH Jumping on the 1/48 Tomcat Bandwagon?

    I'm still waiting for Kitty Hawk's announcement now that the new year has passed... especially now that GWH has blown the lid off of theirs. 😄

    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    Best of luck on that, transparency isn't one of AMK's watchwords. Do they owe us an explanation? Certainly not. Would it go a LONG way towards fostering a better relationship with those they'd like to be their customers? Absolutely. In either case, since I cancelled my pre-order, I guess I don't have a dog in this fight any more. If an explanation had been given as to why they've continually missed deadlines, I might have held on to it.

    EA-6A wild weasel walkways

    It's been molded at least twice, actually... and I can actually find them easier than I can the bog-standard A-6E kit. (at least around here)

    1/48 Tamiya F-14A

    It's there, they just don't mention it in the instructions. For as much detail as Tamiya put into the kit, their instructions sometimes leave a bit to be desired. Another example is in the F-14D kit... if you're building the VF-2 option, they tell you to use the sparrow-well blanking panel used by F-14As and Bs on TARPS-wired jets, when that panel wasn't used in D models. (and I don't recall it being mentioned at all in the A kit, though I think all the options in the F-14A kit pre-date the introduction of TARPS)

    VF-213 Last cruise CAG colour

    That's Tamiya being Tamiya and not proofing their research. THIS is the CAG jet: https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.masm.fr%2FNavycag%2FMaddogDesignsProfiles%2FF-14%2FVF213-BlackLions-CAG-Mutha-Roosevelt-2006.jpg&imgrefurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.masm.fr%2FNavycag%2FMaddogDesignsTomcat.html&docid=MyldOMcTUI_4jM&tbnid=F_x9_eChJJavNM%3A&vet=10ahUKEwjbsZe8l4LfAhXM3YMKHXcuC1AQMwhDKAUwBQ..i&w=1304&h=794&bih=860&biw=1768&q=VF-213 Last cruise CAG jet&ved=0ahUKEwjbsZe8l4LfAhXM3YMKHXcuC1AQMwhDKAUwBQ&iact=mrc&uact=8

    VF-213 Last cruise CAG colour

    The CAG jet? or the Retro jet with the blue skunkstripe/tails? The retro-jet is what comes in the box, the jet was light gull grey. AS-16 is Tamiya's light gull grey approximation (there is no bottle form as I recall), 213's CAG jet was a bog-standard TPS paint scheme I think.
  10. There was a weapons-release camera pod created that would fit on the MXU-611, but I believe it was a one-off and only used at PMTC.

    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    I swear, reading through this thread (the last few pages in particular) is the bulletin board equivilent of wading through a kiddie pool of STD-infected needles... only the STD in question lowers your IQ and makes you question your life's decisions.

    F-14 Expanded Chaff Adapter - Photos?

    Gerry, on the ECA, is that a blanking plate behind the adapter in the photo you posted? The ECA does not seem to go the entire length of the BRU slot.

    Tamiya 1/48 Tomcat build book.

    I'm pretty sure I've stated before... I don't see the utility of such a book. It's not as if the Tamiya kit were in any way a challenge to build. In fact, if the kit were any easier, a drunk monkey could build and win an IPMS regional with it. but hey, it's your money!
