  1. Sorry, I meant the ZM kit in the earlier post.
  2. This is the only kit option AFAIK. https://www.zoukeimura.co.jp/en/products/sws48_14_f4g-wildweasel.html
  3. So now that the Meng kit is out, the excellent Speed Hunter Graphics sheet for F-4Gs in Combat is sold out. In fact, there doesn’t seem too many F-4G sheets currently available. Anyone know of any on the horizon, especially for the Hill Gray schemes with mission markings? The lizard scheme in the Meng kit doesn’t do anything for me (plus doesn’t really seem appropriate given the kit load out of HARMs and ALQ-131).
  4. From the Tamiya page: Includes a realistically recreated seated pilot figure with Helmet-Mounted Display (HMD) and various kinds of ordnance: AIM-9X Sidewinder x2, AIM-120C AMRAAM x2, GBU-12 Paveway II x4, and GBU-31 JDAM x2. https://www.tamiyausa.com/blog/lockheed-f-35-lightning-ii/
  5. Given that Tamiya is reboxing the Italeri kit, I can’t see them doing their own -B. Plus, there are significant changes from the -A that not a lot of parts can be reused, especially not the big parts like the fuselage parts.
  6. Are we still slap fighting about whether this is a new tool kit?
  7. I just asked a question about what you posted. You questioned whether it was a new tool kit, and then you later said “I know that is a new tool kit”. Is that not correct? The answer is yes or no.
  8. So you know that it’s a new tool kit, but you were questioning people before about it being a new tool kit because you didn’t see it written anywhere? What?
  9. Hmm, $130 retail price and $100 preorder price at Squadron. A bit higher than I expected, and quite a bit more than the ZM kit.
  10. I hope they do an updated version of their 1/35 kit with this armed configuration.
  11. I’m curious about the correct configuration of the APR-38 low band antennas on the sides of the tail. I know about the three antennas on the sides of the nose, but there seems to be some variation on how many should be on the sides of the tail. Meng doesn’t seem to show any. Photos I’ve seen show one each side, high up near the leading edge of the tail, and others show maybe a second one. Not sure about the arrowhead stiffener on the stabs being represented by panel lines. Hopefully they will have a PE part to go over it to provide some thickness.
  12. LM usually doesn’t do special preorder pricing.
  13. I’m very much more interested in this Meng release than the ZM kit, although the ZM kit looks very nice. If the info on the box is correct, you’ll get retracted slats, more weapons and ECM pod options, and based on other Meng kits, you’ll probably get 3 or more decal options instead of the one for ZM.
