  1. The AMK kit is definitely not easy to build. Go for the Tamiya. Mark
  2. Are you sure about this? I compared the oleo struts of both the Academy 1/72 and Tamiya 1/48 models and they seem to be pretty close relative to their respective scales of course. The Academy one looks longer as it lacks the rods linking the drag brace to the launch bar. Mark
  3. Thanks for the encouraging words, everyone! Mark
  4. Presenting my go at Academy's new-tool 1/72 F-14A Tomcat. Overall it was a decent build with good detail. Aftermarket used were Fine Molds plastic seatbelts and decals from a re-boxing of their old-tool Tomcat. She is built as Fast Eagle 107 of VF-41 "Black Aces" just after the infamous 1981 Gulf of Sidra incident in which this jet and another VF-41 Tomcat, Fast Eagle 102, shot down a pair of Libyan Su-22 Fitter attack aircraft.

  5. I can confirm that it is not included in the new Academy kit. Mark
  6. You need references for Singapore Vipers? There are a couple on static display at the airshow over this weekend. Mark
  7. Ooh. Looks like Hubbie got hit by the ban hammer.
  8. The Hasegawa wings are missing the hinges and some actuators. Corrections covered in this article. http://www.hyperscale.com/features/2001/f14constructiondwa_3.htm Mark
  9. Where did you get this info from?
  10. Which builds? Photos please. Mark
  11. Looks like we have a winner! 300 pages!
  12. I think they are solid parts in the kit Mark
  13. Still need to fabricate the slime light covers and nav lights. There are no spares for these in the box. Not too difficult though. Mark
  14. Picked up the kit from my LHS over the weekend. Looks really nice! Mark
