    1/48 Revell B1 bomber new kit

    £119 leaves me with the feeling it's basically the price of the previous release from 2-3-4 years ago plus the cost of the Eduard photoetch sets. No real savings here, and I'm dead certain they didn't touch the moulds. So yes, those magnificent Barracuda set will come handy.

    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    Thank you for the photos. I'm no Tomcat expert, is the side view "sponson" thickness the issue? Or the the inflatable bag end angle at cross section? I was under the impression the big deal was the top view too curvy contours leading to what a booty.

    If they release an accurate kit, I'm sure it'll sell and they won't be done. Mind you, it's just my personal opinion. I still remember VW's "Diesel gate". In the first months of that scandal they were crucified, car sales plunged. Now, the Diesel gate is still far from being resolved, but I read VW now selling even more cars than before. People have a short memory, but I'm not saying this in a bad sense : time passes, people forget, and one day people think "yeah, why not give this new mouth-watering product a try, after all". In any case, if AMK succeed in releasing an accurate Tomcat kit, you bet they'll be tight-lipped on the next project. Well, it's all I wish them. And they folded, too bad for them, they'd be 100% responsible, but we'd still have Tamiya, Hasegawa, Kinetic, GWH, Zvezda, ICM, Roden and, when their A-Team is hired, Revell, Kitty Hawk, Hobby Boss and Trumpeter to deliver us exciting new kits.

    Same here. I haven't preordered so AMK obviously owe me nada, and I'm obviously fine with that. I'm simply interested in the technical aspects of the kit and its conception. I'll just have to get myself some of their other kits, they look so well designed. I lost track wether they still intended to go forward with the glazings separate from the canopy frame. Or perhaps it wasn't finalised ? Anyway, if it's released, I'll get one. If it's not, man sooo many other new exciting kits from other brands available.

    I don't have Facebook (nor Twitter, nor Instagram, nor "you name it") so I can't check : are they still silent on Facebook as well ? Not that I'm a Tomcat freak, it's just that the novel features they advertised made me drool and it was inevitable I'd have a go at this kit. But I can still wait.

    Anigrand 1/72 McDonnell 119/220

    Hello, This is a most welcome thread as last night I was looking at placing an order with Anigrand, including this very McDonnell Model 119 and the KC-10. I noticed the too rounded nose and somehow heavy wing trailing edge inner portion, believing the later wouldn't be too difficult to correct due to the resin thickness. I'll be following with great interest this thread. Cheers !

    Fantastic, thank you very much for your prompt reply ! Order will be placed in a few weeks.

    Modelcollect B-52H

    Okay. But then, if the kit is ordered directly from Modelcollect, will the corrected parts be included for free ? Just a honest question.

    Modelcollect B-52H

    Dear Modelcollect team, If I buy the B-52G kit in a hobby shop in, say, 3 months, is there a way knowing if it includes the correction parts, like a sticker or a new reference number ? Thank you in advance.

    Hello enthusiast modellers, my very first post on this great forum -> please don't morning star me (I mean, the Morgenstern weapon) 😓. Having followed this topic for quite some time as a guest, my feeling is that I can live with the fact AMK only knows which are the status with this much anticipated kit. I do appreciate very much posts from members urging to wait and see as much as I do appreciate again very much posts from members providing photos and pointing out potential issues, and I do believe there is more than enough place for both views on that matter. I anyway need to check both sides to make up my mind and in the end, I believe enthusiast modellers will vote with their wallets, which could or not be a good thing for AMK, depending on what will be found in the box, no matter when it's released. Only wishing AMK all the best as I'm still amazed at the overall quality on their Fouga Magister, I can only hope they maintain this level of fine details, great moulding and amazing build experience.
