To dispel all speculations about this kit accuracy only one released kit, in my hands, would be enough. 

 

Fixed it for ya...

 

Seriously, released pics are what started all this ridiculous hoopla over perceived (in)accuracy. You honestly think one more pic will "dispel all speculations" ???  Wow.

Neither you, or anyone else has been able to prove, with definitive photos or any other information, that there is a flaw in the kit. Simply because you "think" there is one, doesn't mean there is one. I actually find it a bit comical, especially considering the fact that images of the production kit have been few and you're basing your somewhat matter of fact statement on what has been said to be an early test shot. For those that have been so sure of yourselves about 'flaws', I have a feeling there is a plate of crow warming in an oven for you.

 

Okay, let us lie the criticism and jokes about the AMK kit to rest for those who have already pre-ordered it. Had I pre-ordered mine, all of this drama ought to have affected me, some, I guess. It's not fair to all those who have invested their money on this kit, so enough of the jokes from me. Whether the rear flanks of the AMK kit is flawed or not, I'm quite sure it would be something fixable somehow - no kit is 100% accurate after all. They all need some sort of fettling with. I didn't pre-order this kit because I don't fancy the D version but, had AMK started with the figther version, I'd surely have been one of the modellers who pre-ordered.

All in all, it looks like it's going to be one of a hell of a kit, D version and all.

Great Wall releasing their kit first wouldn't change a thing with regards to AMK. You know why? Because despite the issues AMK has had with this kit, as well as the perceived lack of communication, their kit will still sell very well. Many of their biggest critics will end up buying the kit and in a few months, this whole ridiculous thread will be forgotten by many of us.

 

I concur, but I won't ever going to get any more of the kits released by GWH, as they've denied me some replacement parts which came defective on a kit I bought. I wonder if AMK had not sent me those replacement parts the minute they received my request - I'm quite sure they would have! So go shag, GWH. Your Customer Service leave a HUGE LOT! to be desired.

Cheers,

Just a thought...

 

Could AMK be waiting for the next model show (Scale-Modelworld Nov. 10) to officially announce/show the new (final production) kit?

 

Are they going to be at the show on Nov. 10?

@ Habu,

 

Yes indeed. Just one pic of the rear fuselage parts would end all this.

 

As a result, I warn everybody who care about accuracy to wait before buying what ia already the most debated kit in history. Crazy, given the abundance of high quality Tomcats kits out there.

You know I just had the thought after reading another two pages of mindless drivel with an absolute zero sense of direction. The only bright light was from Mr. Roof. Perhaps you need to finally admit that YOU had NO serious intention to adding serious comment in the conversation. I for one intend on recieving two kits. Not three or four because I never ever thought much of the Tomcat! Yet I think even less of the constant drool from the shill acting like trolls working had to disrupt this thread. Go over and disrupt another thread on another kit.

So is this how the rear flanks on the AMK kit will look like? It does look wrong; was just watching at the review of the Tamiya Tomcat D kit on Flory Models, and that area doesn't nearly look like that on that kit. What's the deal? 

Manuel, could you please post some images of this area on your Tamiya kit? And why haven't you started building it yet?

Cheers,

Hey man, do what you want: buy the kit, don't buy the kit: it's no skin off my nose. I merely pointed-out something I noticed, and you're free to disagree. That being said, I put infinitely more weight in what I see rather than in your feeling.

The thread is 123 pages long so it could qualify for "eminent" under the definition ........but the kit is now relying on summer in the southern hemisphere, at least until December 31st when 2018 ends........

Ah, the pun was spotted.

 Same area, extremely different angles. This can change the look of everything.

Strange...since in previous construction photos the curve looked ok!  I agree though that the later pics show quite heavy hips… 😉 Here the earlier construction Picture...

The area ahead of the stabilizer pivots looks to be a continuous curve. As pointed out previously, the area ahead of the pivot should be straight from the pivot to the first panel line before the air bags. Then it curves inward. You can see the difference in this pic of a Tamiya. BUT, the picture above is still not definitive. It does not have the top fuselage piece added and the camera angle is different than the Tamiya pic. That said, I have not seen anything yet that shows there isn't some problem here.

I think that this comparison is pretty clear! The kit is way off the real jet. And I don't think that excuses like photos from different angle, or shadows or whatever have a place here.

Restore a bit of perspective and it is not so clear...

Most of the shape difference is in the inflatable area.
