  1. any decal sheet you buy should have proper painting instructions with it.
  2. they need to do a second JASDF weapons set with that also includes the J/AAQ-2 FLIR/Targeting pod! Maybe now that they've got their AMRAAM derivatives online along with these missiles and a few others, maybe a new set will reveal itself someday.
  3. The weapons boxes mean nothing to us at this point
  4. And now Sio is evidently gonna build one....
  5. If they have kits available for a build-off, then why are they bothering with this circle-jerk when they could be shipping kits to people who have been on the hook for a pre-order? Sio, how did you guys possibly think this would be seen as a good thing? You missed your window for showmanship, SHIP THE KITS.
  6. I think they look just fine. On the plus side, now they'll be easier to paint
  7. Even then, only hasegawa 1/72 kits after a certain boxing (I think it was their diamondbacks F-14B boxing? Maybe the black knights history kit) include the pylon in-box... otherwise you're stuck getting a weapons set (which would have the pylon and pod)
  8. it's a misnomer, but most people still usually call it the -14. (smart people looking to avoid a banal argument about semantics just call it a LANTIRN and move on... probably the best idea here too.)
  9. they tested with an ALQ-14 in 1995 before creating a pod that combined the two
  10. A litening pod is not the same as a LANTIRN unfortunately.
  11. I thought I was looking at Revell sidewinders at first.
  12. my last count was around 40 airframes still flying as well. Anyone's guess as to how many are MC. This is the first I've heard about new MFDs in anything other than the F-14AM though. Same stacked screen layout?
  13. Good. Anything and everything the rest of us have to say in this thread has absolutely zero bearing on you.
  14. "Need"? No, this is a hobby... no one NEEDS anything. As. Tomcat fan though, while there are kits that will always be "good enough" for me (the revell tomcat will always be a favorite for me. Good shape, easy to build, easy to modify), I will never not be excited about a new, more accurate and easier to build kit on the market (read: Tamiya). I was initially just as excited about the AMK, until images of the real plastic started leaking, then instead of being transparent about listening to our concerns, they tried to deflect, saying "hey, look at our multi-piece wings!"
