I heard that a sharkmouth scheme might be included in the releases!

Regards,

Hi Saul,

Nothing finalised yet but of course a Sharkmouth might be interesting. We would rule nothing out until the schemes are set in stone at the final production phase.

What one(s) did you have in mind?

I promised Saul a sharkmouth scheme!

And he has to prepare me all the informations......... :D :D

Tamiya has boxed Italeri kits for the Japanese market for almost 50 years.

So I guess that was the rumored and awaited 1/48 Tamiya Tomcat then? If so, well, no thanks Tamiya.

The rumored Tamiya F-14 was just that - a rumor. Fantasy. Tamiya has made no noises that I'm aware of that they intend to do a 1/48 Tomcat of their own. If they do, it will have nothing whatsoever to do with the rebox of the Italeri kit however. That's simply a marketing agreement they've had for 5 decades.

I wouldn't be afraid to

I kind of figure the new AMK kit will be state of the art, and probably worth the wait. All of my Tomcat kits are 1/72 except for one Hasegawa. I have several Fujimi's and a couple Hobby Boss in 1/72 scale. Looked at the small scale Hasegawa, and tossed it back in the 50% off pile. I would like to see AMK seriously consider doing their Tomcat in 1/72, as right now we only have Fujimi and H.B. to choose from.

Now we are watching a new state of the art manufacturer come to the table. We've picked up on Great Wall, Meng, a couple others in the last few years that are really up there. I wouldn't be afraid to look at other venues as well. Yet something that's really needed. Like I said before, an all new tool and accurate F100 series is a license to print money. The F111 series done right. A new A26 Invader will make you dear to a lot of hearts!

Especially if it were actually A-26 shaped!

Many thanks Gary. May a special place in heaven be reserved for you.

Modeling heaven yes. Modeling hell would be every subject matter you could possibly think of is reproduced in all three scales, but there's no glue!
