    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    There is absolutely no proof of this whatsoever and your matter of fact statement is the only thing that is flawed. Beside that, with knowledge of your ridiculous expectations of what makes a good kit, some of us can't take anything you say about accuracy seriously.

    Anybody from Latvia or Estonia

    One of my co-workers is from Latvia. What type of advice are you looking for? Let me know and I'll ask her if she can help with answers.

    Actually, I just took a closer look at your photo. I originally thought you were referring to the fairing itself, which does go almost all the way to the nozzle. Re-reading your post, you are referring to the "kink/angle" (for lack of a better term). There are no clear photos of this part that I've seen, so I can't say if it is correct or not.

    It isn't a potential issue. The shroud pretty much goes all the way to the burner can.....

    Go to the 13:10 mark in the video.....This area of the AMK F-14D is clearly shown......This area of the AMK F-14D is correct on the production kit........All of this hype on the inaccuracy of this area is being blown completely out of proportion........It's only a plastic replica of an airplane........You're still going to be able to breathe if it is slightly off.........The Earth is still going to revolve around the Sun........Pistachio Ice Cream is still going to be my favorite......Muhammad Ali will continue to be the greatest boxer that ever got in the ring, etc., etc.

    Hasegawa F/A-18D 1/48

    Rodney, That looks awesome! That decal sheet was the first product I ever released and it's nice to learn it was the first aftermarket sheet you ever purchased. Do you mind if I use your photos on my web site and Facebook page to show off the use of the decals? Dave
  7. This is the last sheet. They were emailed to the printer earlier this afternoon and should be ready to pick up tomorrow afternoon along with the ordnance charts. I'll start packing and shipping tomorrow evening.
  8. Not yet.......If all goes as planned, they should start shipping tomorrow. I just sent the last sets of instruction sheets to the printer and should be able to pick them up tomorrow afternoon. The decals were received almost a month early from Microscale and it took me a few days longer than expected to get the placement guides finished. Hope the final product is worth the wait.
  9. The stripes on the tail of the 115 jets are sized to fit the Hasegawa kit. That part of the tail is slightly wider on the Hasegawa kit than it is on the Kinetic kit. As a result, it will fit the Kinetic tail perfectly with only a trimming of the decal needed (after being applied).

    GWH Jumping on the 1/48 Tomcat Bandwagon?

    Well, a couple of years ago I started a master for a 1/48 GRU-5 ejection seat and had a potential buyer for it.........then you released yours and the offer to release mine was respectfully rescinded. I wasn't angry (hell, I bought two sets of yours), but things like this happen. If no one "stepped on toes", there would only be ONE kit of each subject for us to choose from and we'd all be happy with our Italeri 1/48 SR-71's! 😄 😄

    F-35 news roundup

    Until 1 October at least. Form what I've been told, all color is to be removed from aircraft at the beginning of the new FY. Variations of gray will be acceptable, but the days of full color Navy CAG and Marine Corps Command Jets are apparently over.
  12. I've just had several projects going on all at once and haven't had a chance to add the profiles to the site. I'll have them by the middle of the week.
  13. The sheets have arrived from Microscale..........three weeks earlier than expected! I'll be playing catch up this weekend wrapping up the placement guides and getting them all packed up. Order button is turned on! https://flyingleathernecksdecals.com Dave
