  1. To put it simply, price point and availability. The Fine Molds F-14D was a limited edition kit bundled with several issues of Model Graphix magazine. The GWH kit retails for almost US$45 where I’m at. The Academy kit will probably retail for half that. Mark
  2. Saw this on MMZone. Looks like a new tool kit. http://mmzone.co.kr/mms_tool/mt_view.php?mms_db_name=mmz_media&no=5393 Mark
  3. I think @Dave Roof is the best person to help with this question. Mark
  4. I don’t understand what you mean here about no photos of the kit being available. Weren’t 10 copies given to a bunch of modellers in the US and another 10 to modellers in Malaysia? They’ve been building and posting photos of their builds. Mark
  5. Full instruction manual has been uploaded on Facebook. Mark
  6. Nah. It’s unbuildable because it doesn’t come with pilot figures! 😂 How about a list comparing this kit with the Hasegawa Tomcat? 😬 Mark
  7. Erm. I wasn’t trying to find fault with the kit. I just figured out what some of the others were talking about when then mentioned “axial misalignment” and pointed it out to Terry who didn’t recognise it from the photo posted earlier. Mark
  8. This little bit right here. Mark
  9. You do know that the price comparison between Tamiya and AMK in Japan isn’t fair right? Japan slaps a hefty import tax on foreign imports, making non-Japanese kits much more expensive to acquire there. Just take a look at the Hobby Search website. A Revell 1/48 F-14D costs the same as one from Hasegawa! Mark
  10. Just to check, are you comparing prices on Japanese websites? Mark
  11. No idea. Not a squeak from them about their 1/48 kit. Maybe @haneto may have a clue? Mark
  12. Disclaimer: this isn’t my build. I lifted off the AMK Facebook Fan page. It was built by Taiwanese modeller 樊成彬 (Fan Cheng Pin). Mark
  13. First completed build is out. Mark
  14. Thanks for sharing your experience working with Great Wall Hobby. However, this thread is about AvantGarde Model Kits aka AMK. Mark
