    How can I change my name

    Hi, After about ten years as a member of this forum I woul like to change my name from "Galfa" to my true one. How can I do that?
  2. Hi, Your Spitfire is work of art, but it is far from being the only impressive part of this threat. Chuck, your narrative and your photography are as well great. Your Spitfire is in 1:32 scale but you are larger than life...
  3. Dear Solo, Honestly, I am astonished by your post. Gabor argument is solid. He just wants to learn from mistakes. He is not crusading. About you, please do not forget that our hobby is - scale - modelling. Do you still remember whar - scale - is about ?

    Well, well, well.. If you look carefully, rear fuselage and exhausts of the RC Tomcat they both look quite similar to the AMK. However, Given all this fuss about Tomcats, I'm entertaining myself on a Hasegawa kit in 1:48, doing my best to fix as many inaccuracies as possibile, including the thickness of wings leading edges: Maybe I should post a "In Progress" thread...

    Is it an optical illusion, or the hips of our belowed forthcoming TomcAMK are quite alike these: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?1192026-ART-TECH-F14-due-2010/page75 😎

    Yes, yes... I do, I do want to know what you think ! I am so curious ! However, these two pictures are not new and, most important, are - again - top shots. Would I would like to see is a side shot of the upper fuselage rear. In addition, to assess the rear fuselage accuracy, we need to take a look at the rear fuselage-engine-fairings. On top of all that, on the "new" pictures, it is quite visible the very same horizontal stabilizer (same of my post of a while ago) characterized by an exaggerated curvature. Here a screeshot from the video posted by Solo on September 29 (page 113): Take a good look... So, these two "new" pictures are just showing once again that - accuracy wise - the AMK Tomcat is flawed.

    Do you think you are funny or pathetic ?

    Dear Dave, That's very interesting, expecially given that pilots are not included...

    Dear habu2, No, haven't been at Telford this year. Last year yes, but not this year. However, four different friends of mine have been there both days. All four searched the Tomcat AMK long and wide and did not find it. Please, Martin, keep your word... please

    Dear Martin, Can you keep your word? Telford is over and we are still waiting to see your samples. That's something not impossible, given this photo posted on AMK Facebook. All these parts look very much final... Something like this would help much:
  11. Chuck, Once again thank you for sharing with us your art.

    @Rex Given that I am the one who said "I hope so" let me stress that I have no hidden agenda. My point is that I care about accuracy and I don't want to be disappointed after open a box. It happened to me in the past and I don't want this to happen again to me or to others. I will be the first one to celebrate this kit when proved that I am wrong. By the way, Telford is just a couple of days away...

    Because that is what this forum is about. AMK posted photo of their 1:48 F-14D on this thread for marketing reason. By these photos is clear that the AMK 1:48 F-14D is seriously flawed, accuracy wise. As a result, members of this forum like me, who care about accuracy, are warning whoever cares about accuracy to stay far from this kit. Then AMK says that their F-14D is - now - fine, but does not offer evidence of that, and will not offer evidence untill after they sell the kit at Telford. So, why I have to wait until the kit come out to elaborate on what is already visible - here - since weeks?

    Given Phantomdriver and Doppelganger replies, I deleted my last post.
