    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    So AMK does not have a certain bump (yet) that should be there? It could be worse...since grinding a bump into a mold is a lot easier then removeing one that should not be there. AMK, Martin...over to you guys... cheers Uwe

    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    Looking at the construction pictures on page 114 and comparing them with the same parts on my unbuild Tamiya -D I see no difference but I agree that some of the pics could lead to such (wrong) conclusions since the rounded edge of the bags behind the wings make the curves look much more curved… I think we are ok, let's wait until we see a full build up one in primer and under good lighting. cheers Uwe PS: How about some cockpit pictures? 😉

    BF109F-4 H.J. Marseille Yellow 14 1/48

    Thanks a lot for the detailed answer. With 8673 being a refurbished plane now the G-Style prop starts to also make sense. I wonder where it was refurbished, back home or somwhere in Afrika. 8673 also shows the white wall tail wheel tyre but I have not yet found a picture to prove the same for the main wheels. Too bad the Picture you shared has all those red markings in it, will serach around for it in an "uncensored" version… thanks Uwe
  5. Hello all I was in a Shopping mood yesterday and purchased kits and stuff for a little diorama in 1/48: -Zvezda BF109F-4 -Life Like decals yellow 14 and OTTO Kübel -Quickboost sets for above kit...ailerons, engine parts and exausts -Tamiya Kübel Afrika version with figures Now I have some Questions for the experts... 1. Did the F4 already have the later bucket seat ala -G model or do I need the earlier seat? 2. Which of the Yellow 14 versions fit to the OTTO Kübel time wise? Any other useful hints and tips and links to Infos are also highly appriciated. I always wanted a Yellow 14...especially after seeing Marseille's 158 kill marks rudder in person at the Berlin Gatho LW Museum. thanks a lot Uwe

    GWH Jumping on the 1/48 Tomcat Bandwagon?

    Hi... I do not mind another Tomcat. Tomcats sell and that why they are being prduced. If GWH gets the shape Right...IF...then this kit will sell, I am sure. One will go my way fotr sure. I hope the -A will include the parts for the very early -As, so 1974 first cruise for example. I have GWH's Mig29, it's a great kit apart from the challanging fit. I do not have their F-15s but I hear the later releases are top notch. The most interesting Question for me will be, who Releases first? AMK or GWH...anyhow, I will buy both! cheers Uwe

    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    Hi The sprue lay out is great. I am not worried about the wings, I will disply the model in a certain way and have no need for movable wings... What I find sad is that the cockpit tub is again done in the conservative way as one piece. I was chatting with Sio about this a year ago and suggested to have the consoles, side walls and floor all as seperate parts which would make it very easy to have those side wall details in plastic, something so far only resin cockpits offer. So now, unless AMK came up with some serious slide molds, I can not see this being possible. Anyway...I am sittig here waiting for the kit and will buy it once it hits the Euopean market. cheers Uwe PS: Is that sprue shot available in high res and sharp?

  9. Hello all After I upgraded my machine to WIN10 the ARC Forum in Firefox 62.0 does not let me write replies nor new Topics any more. I do not get the masks (windows) to type...! Reading works find though. In IE it works...but I rather work with Fire Fox. Any ideas? thanks Uwe

    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    Those teaser pics are nice but I would rather like to see a good, high res, sprue lay out of all the sprues. Soo, hopefully, close to the release you would think all sprues have been shot at least for test purposes... cheers Uwe

    1/48 Tamiya F-14D

    Hi Darren The wheels are not bad but the tyres lack all the nice markers names that the resin guys have on theirs...I have already used Eduard wheels on my -A. The Tamiya wheels could be used on an old Monogram in stead... cheers Uwe

    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    Hello AMK...any news on the Tomcat please? Even though I now have the Tamiya -D, I still have budget for yours... 🙂 Looking fwd to it! cheers Uwe

    1/48 Tamiya F-14D

    Hi...Has anybody heard anything about upcoming Eduard and other add on stuff for the Tamiya -D? Wheels are needed, a cockpit maybe and I am tempted to say exaust nozzles since those are rather simplified in the Tamiya kit. thanks Uwe

    IRIAF F-4 D Phantoms

    Great pictures of my favourite jet. How recent were those taken? Does Iran still fly -D models? I know they have -E ones as well. Are all those still in service? cheers Uwe
