  1. Nice work! I really like how the paint scheme turned out. πŸ‘ But are you sure about the nose gear oleo being too long as it comes in the kit? I think the nose gear of your model looks slightly too low in the photos, making the model's nose sit a bit low. But that may be because of the angle in the photos. When modeling an airborne Tomcat I spent a lot of time looking at photos of the real aircraft and its nose landing gear. I came to the conclusion that the oleo was of the same length regardless of being airborne (without load) or on the ground (with load). (However, I did modif
  2. Sorry to learn this and I hope everything works out for the owner. And agreed, there's indeed a huge difference between the two approaches.
  3. Just curious about where their announced 1/48th scale Buccaneer went, as I haven't heard anything in a long while. I tried a search but not much turned up. 😐
  4. Indeed so. Some filler and sanding necessary, but looks doable. Btw, that mid style gun vent looks a wee bit soft in detail compared to, say, Hasegawa. Perhaps your box has two similar sprues with a part for the gun vent?
  5. Hmm... so no signs of the later style beaver tail and gun vent in the upcoming F-14A? Well, perhaps more releases are on the way.
  6. Now what is this, AMK is releasing a Tomcat? And the kit will be out in just a few weeks too? Oh joy! (My sincere apologies, just trying to up this thread to reach page 200...)
  7. From where should one order separate sprues, directly from AMK or from somewhere else?
  8. Good thing that AMK seem to include an optional canopy molded as a single clear part instead of only that strange multi-part affair. And now I really start to wonder if the wings with extended slats/flaps will fit the Tamiya kit... guess there's only one way to find out.
  9. Hmm, I’m a bit confused. is this Italeri/Fujimi release still good for a standard low-viz US Navy machine?
  10. Thanks for pointing out the bulge, I see it now. But as you say, some reworking may be in order to reduce its shape. The spine... any error there still eludes me. It’s possible that the upper section behind the cockpit is a bit too ’pinched’, but I’d wait for a built-up example (where the forward fuselage and GPS dome insert has been added) to better see the overall shape. But still, think I will wait for an F-14A to show up before jumping in.
  11. Hmm... I may miss something obvious but the kit spine still looks OK to me. But those bulges over the wing pivots look plain weird. πŸ€”
  12. Thanks! πŸ™‚ must say I really like what I see here, apart from the main wheels I think it all looks rather tasty. And in this photo I think the spine is less pronounced, so maybe not an issue?
  13. Oops, my bad. I read his post but somehow missed that detail. Thanks! πŸ™‚
