Maybe some time in the future the kit will be obsolete (for the then "Tomcat to end all Tomcats"😬 ) and will be available for 20 bugs. Then I'll definitely go for it.

 

Great Wall has a kit coming.  My bet is that it will definitely one-up the AMK kit - assuming the AMK kit ever even comes to market.  If for no other reason that GWH’s surface detail is an order of magnitude finer than the rather coarse surface detail that AMK kits have.

Well when I.... ( I mean a friend ) storm Area 51, I .... ( ugh, my friend ) can ask where they keep all the AMK Tomcat kits.

Them Area 51 aliens can manipulate time. If our raid is successful, Christmas  :santa: 2017.

Ahh, I see, the kit is actually being designed and built in the future. Around 2050. Zactoman and his cohorts will raid Area 51, travel forward in time, retrieve the kits and pop back to 2017. QED! Pretty soon, we'll have already purchased, critiqued and built the kit. In fact, this thread ended seven months ago.

It only takes one of us to get through to them aliens and make it happen.

Wow, 1.5 million. The cat is in the bag (so to speak :whistle:). I can see it now. Very shortly, my completed AMK F-14 will be sitting on the shelf with two years of dust collected. This thread will have never happened and a space/time paradox will rip the universe down to its basic particles. So, goodbye, and thanks for all the fish! :gr_eek2:

Funny you're speaking about a time paradox, Mark, as I myself had to go back to page 153 to find out Marty McFly had already been to the future to tell us this:

Now take a good look at how dejected his expression is. :hmmm:

Oh, this is bad, this is real bad. This means the paradox has already started and even as I write this, a bubble of temporal shear is expanding through space and time. Soon, the entire AMK F-14 thread will cease to exist. If you happen to be reading this when it reaches you, you will experience dizzyness, severe headaches, depression,  agitation and a craving for chocolatized diary products. Either that or you've been bitten by the Horvatian Brain tick and will die in horrible agony at any moment. :dontknow:

Your mistaken. Those are symptoms of a Space Herpy bite

Speaking of bite and the Jaws sign in the background of that McFly meme, I kind of could feel the sound cue of the big shark slowly marauding its victim in the film, but in the form of @terrysumner, very close round this thread. :rofl:

But, but, Zactoman is only going back to 2017. How is it going to then get back to 2015? Sleepy, what do you know that you're not telling us? Do you have some side deal with the aforementioned aliens? Fess up! :suspicious:

That in fact would actually be rather clever now (considering the circumstance of attracting the casual "Joe common" modeller) .... me thinks?!🤔

where are we on this one. Release date? 😁

My guess (just my WAG opinion) is that they ran out of money for ordering plastic pellets, hiring packaging people to make up the kits and have no money to ship the kits to distributors. Probably trying feverishly to get industrial or consumer goods injection molding jobs to fund it.

Just a guess. Why else is it taking so long? They've had the molds and decals for weeks (months?) now. They keep showing the parts at shows, so must have a few test runs. But no production yet. As they say: "it takes money to make money."
