  1. So, when is this ready to ship? 😁
  2. Here's the link: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Hasegawa-OA-4M-Skyhawk-1-32-Hi-Grade/133081523820?hash=item1efc46e66c:g:~p0AAOSwN6Fc9W76
  3. Either way, it may be not so "dead" then and we may see a 48 or 32 scale Tiger appear in the near future?
  4. Dave, the point is, while this is an excellent kit, it is slightly disappointing that the cockpit area of all areas was not given more attention. The cockpit IS Fantasy Island. Check this out to kick some realistic shape into it: http://www.aeroscale.co.uk/modules.php?op=modload&name=SquawkBox&file=index&req=viewtopic&topic_id=262925&page=1 Of course one can buy AM but that again adds to cost. Tamiya provides decent cockpits and so does Hasegawa. It is nice we have them, but they could have been great with some more attention, especially with all the available Zippers around (Italy has more than one to visit I believe...). Be that as it may, I will enjoy building mine including one of the upcoming Kinetic kits in 48 scale. Well done Raymond (also love the S-2A)
  5. I have to agree here. The Hasegawa kit is solid but it really does need the upgrade set that Daco Models made. Without it you have a divotter and not a zipper. So, although there are many options, the Kinetic one, if done right, may be the ultimate 48-Zipper. ...perhaps they can also do 32? The Italeri one suffers from bad panelling as well...and a Fantasy island cockpit. Oh well, we can always complain. Let's just build and rejoice we have so many options. I am tempted to get one...with a C2 seat for NL purposes.

  7. I was involved in providing research for the Streak and the Flash (2013-2015). I believe Glen Coleman went to great efforts and even travelled to Denmark to research the Flash...however, KH decided to place the 2 Cold War Warriors projects in the fridge in favour of other projects to generate profits...logical although the Streak and Flash are sought after kits in 32. Same goes for the Tiger. Both 48 and 32 would sell well. Wait and see is all we can do...
  8. with GWH's announcement I assume this effort will be ending ?? Maybe AMK sold the work to GWH as too much credit was washed away? Or is GWH a new separate effort? Fascinating times! By the way: Tomcats remain relevant as Top Gun: Maverick will feature them again... (So, Tomcat 1/32 Tamiya!!!)
  9. The F-14B will be announced by Tamiya at the Shizuoka Show 🙂
  10. By Building 2 Tamiya F-14s?
  11. That is also an idea. However, it has also been a looooooooong time since Academy took on a 1/32 jet... Well, hope springs eternal. But I think everyone thought that Revell had delayed the issuing of this kit because they were improving it after all the initial comments from some experts here. Alas...that was not the case and so you get bad press which is a bit deserved I think.
