    Proposal: TOPGUN Group Build for the 50th Anniversary

    I’ve read through both discussions about this group build but could not find a consensus as to what builds would qualify for this GB. Do they have to be F-14s, A-4s and F-5s as they appeared or is the scope wider and includes all USN aircraft involved in DACT? Mark

    Kitty Hawk 1:48 Su-34

    I seem to recall from the discussion on the HB Su-34 that the wing fence was a late mod and that aircraft which had it would also have the APU on the tail boom (something that HB missed). Mark

    Ah yes I see now. Yup, the holes are indeed too small. Mark

    So what exactly is wrong with the detail on the wing? I only understood the part where you highlighted the double row of rivets and wrote 单排 meaning that it should be a single row instead. I wasn’t really able to read the rest though. Mark

    Kitty Hawk 1:48 Su-34

    I think it is trying to point out that the rocket launcher is hollow and doesn’t have the tubes represented. Mark

    Hmmm. Looking at a photo of the actual aircraft, the molded detail actually looks ok. For example the round panels seem to be in the correct position and do not need to be moved forward as indicated by the red arrows. Would appreciate it if someone could point to exactly where the errors are because I’m not seeing them. Mark

    1/48 Tamiya F-14D

    Someone should grab the Tamiya Tomcat from their booth and do a “flyby” with it at the AMK booth while making jet engine noises just to rub it in. 😂 Mark

    Tomcat stand at Shizuoka with boxart shot. There looks to be a VF-2 option as well. https://www.facebook.com/groups/192858157787707/permalink/364332090640312/ Mark

    FAC(A) F-18D in OIF, 1/48th

    Erm. I think he’s talking 1/48. Mark
  15. Upon further inspection, I found that they actually printed the right console decal in the correct orientation. Lol. Mark
