Well said and pretty much true, we seem to base our kit buying on what the so called experts say when we should just buy what we like. I buy what I like and base it on an honest review of the kit for fit, ease of build etc not on whether it's 2mm short in lenght or span. I like the F-4 and every kit manufacturer has made at least one error big or small.
Now back to AMK they're biggest mistake was they should've said nothing and just released the kit now it's just a big PR s#$tstorm because it's been 4 years and nothing. If they had just released the kit they're stock as a kit maker wouldn't have taken a beating for 192+ pages.
This is just my opinion and thoughts I have no need for this kit (have 6 Tamiya) just an observation on 192+ pages of other opinions.
