  1. Just had a look at my kit. Concur with the findings that rivet detail is missing from the underside of the dirty wing. However, I found my slats for both the clean and dirty wings to be molded correctly with complete panel lines and rivets. Mark
  2. Lol. They’ve done what every Skyhawk kit producer couldn’t. Mark
  3. The Sufa is a block 52. You’ll need wheels for a block 40 Barak. Mark
  4. Looks good so far. But I think you have installed the RIO’s upper panel upside down. Mark
  5. The kit is finally here at my LHS. Snagged these two for S$70 so about US$50. No pre-ordering drama. Mark
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. I think @Dave Roof is the best person to help with this question. Mark
  9. 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
  10. Full instruction manual has been uploaded on Facebook. Mark
  11. Nah. It’s unbuildable because it doesn’t come with pilot figures! 😂 How about a list comparing this kit with the Hasegawa Tomcat? 😬 Mark
  12. 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
  13. This little bit right here. Mark
  14. 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
  15. Just to check, are you comparing prices on Japanese websites? Mark
  16. No idea. Not a squeak from them about their 1/48 kit. Maybe @haneto may have a clue? Mark
  17. 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
  18. First completed build is out. Mark
  19. Thanks for sharing your experience working with Great Wall Hobby. However, this thread is about AvantGarde Model Kits aka AMK. Mark
  20. Thanks for organising this group, Terry! Really nice to see those builds going. Building without instructions must really be a challenge. Mark
  21. Not sure how feasible that would be if lots of photos are posted plus the feedback in the descriptions and comment sections. Mark
  22. Looks like an Elta 8222 jammer pod. Available here: https://air-graphics.co.uk/shop?keywords=F-111&olsPage=products%2Fac-055-elta-8222-ecm-pod Mark
  23. Yup. The decals for weapons are provided so it’s a pretty good bet they’ll be included. What concerns me, however, is the lack of decals for the LANTIRN and TARPS pods are a sign that they may not be included. Mark
  24. Regarding the TDDs, the 4 that are on the M are in line with the fins of the missile while the 2 on the F are offset from the fins. Mark
