  1. I thoroughly enjoy the Daco products and it is true one cannot always please everyone...
  2. the set has much more options for variants so why not! I have the set and some sprues and it is great work by Danny Coremans.
  3. 208 pages...what I do wonder is why the Tamiya Tomcat does not have these shape issues...I assume both AMK and Tamiya did a 3D scan on the F-14?
  4. where are we on this one. Release date? 😁
  5. wonderful. Now, follow-up with the 32-version 😁
  6. 2020 when Top Gun is released...
  7. TAMIYA: 1/32 and 1/48. Problems solved
  8. So, when is this ready to ship? 😁
  9. Here's the link: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Hasegawa-OA-4M-Skyhawk-1-32-Hi-Grade/133081523820?hash=item1efc46e66c:g:~p0AAOSwN6Fc9W76
  10. Either way, it may be not so "dead" then and we may see a 48 or 32 scale Tiger appear in the near future?
  11. 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)
  12. 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.

  14. 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...
