    Tamiya 1/32 F-4E HAF SRA

    No video? Phantom looks great!

    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    Seeing this mass urge for detailed wings I bet the GWH will try to please the audience too.

    It looks like the section with horizontal stabilizer's nest is kinda flat, it was constant curvature before. There was new photo album today (seem deleted by now) that was containing 3d sketches with reworked arse. Looked much better than any mold till now but it was only one or two angles with real-photo comparision, hard to say if fixed for good.

    As long as AMK or other persons were sharing some photos it was serving well for that purpose. Who knows, maybe if not this thread then Tomcat would be already released, with fat arse?

    Well, they released some info about one test shot weaponry sprue set to be unveiled today evening. Seem like they read this topic.

    I've just checked my HB and Tamiya kits, they both look way different than AMK.

    If this thread was locked before then AMK may have missed some errors that were pointed out in the course of discussion. If we all be "Looks-Accurate-Enough-for-Me" modellers then AMK would've released the kit in the Mold-1 version. Maybe the reason they had no model with them at Telford means that their production undergoes changes. Plus, this thread, as mentioned above, is an example how not to carry the PR/announcements on. On top of that I think it's good to have such thread as safety valve - as long as it is not used to state some personal insults to anyone. I do not see anything wrong in discussing over the AMK's way of announcing, rising funds or whatever else as along as it is related to their F-14. Moreover I think that such problems should be solved on unit-level. Why to punish everyone interested for the offenses of just couple of people?

    Right-click on the photo, choose "Copy image address" and then paste it in the new tab. Since then the image will load normally.

    For me it looks like a way to the kit release...

    Kinetic F-16XL2

    If the item number starts with 48xxx then it must be right scale.

    Of course they have no obligations to provide anything, at the same time we have no obligation to keep quiet. Thing is simple - they release info about future release of popular model using many superlatives - by this they already start the machine. This gives them attention needed to nicely launch the model and idea of population interested but also starts discussions. When they publish info about updates to the development progress they also re-burn the fire of discussion. Everything wouldn't be so big without the super-long delay in kit production. The estimated date of delivery on indiegogo is December 2017 and I personally doubt that they'll make it in 2018.

    Flickr now limiting free accounts to 1000 images.

    Well, I was Pro user at Photobucket before (until they have insanely rised the prices), then I went to flickr and was a Pro for $24 per year. I think $24 is a decent price for the offerings, $50 is not. Any ideas of other photo sharing services?
