AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

Recommended Posts

I don't think they fixed any of the issues pointed out last year.

I don't think so. It just doesn't look so bad from this perspective.

 

Cheers,

I think you're right. Oh well, wishful thinking. It wouldn't make sense in any case. They would hardly retool a major mold in the short time since the last time they posted pics of the part. From what I can see right off, they didn't touch the rear end either. But, we'll have parts in hand in a relatively short time (if they are true to their word) and be able to say definitively what is what. Oh, I am SO excited... :709-457:

Nothing in those pictures makes me want to sell my Tamiya kits so I don't need one

 

This thread is like.:deadhorse1: but it will probably hit 200 pages before the kit is released.

Thanks for posting. I enjoyed seeing what I'll be getting with the new F-14 kit.

End of august? Which year? I'll wait for a decent review from any of the rivet-counters or experts here before dipping my finger into it; otherwise I'll stick with my tamigawa.

Nice boxes. They look like the most realistic boxes evarr...

GBU-38's look nice, well  the picture on the box anyway.

Good thing that AMK seem to include an optional canopy molded as a single clear part instead of only that strange multi-part affair.

And now I really start to wonder if the wings with extended slats/flaps will fit the Tamiya kit... guess there's only one way to find out.

So close! Just 5 more pages to 200! That rear curve! Wonder if they will sell the weapons separately?

I have just sent email to HobbyEasy about date of delivery and transport fee. Total cost of preorder kit plus shipping look almost the same like cost of Tamiya F-14D.

I'll take two copies of Sprues A and B, please. And an ordnance set.

 

Exactly my thoughts here, Andrew. Too bad that you needed to order the clean wing sprue B in order to get the rest of the spoilers to go with the dirty wing sprue A, but a lot better than to have to buy the whole kit, I guess.

Keep ordnance set.

From where should one order separate sprues, directly from AMK or from somewhere else?

I see very big potential aftermarket for not used pairs of wings of AMK. If you make Tomcat with wings closed, you can sell second pair. 🙂
It could be nice if those wings should fit to Tamiya's insert part.

did I miss a good fight? it seems there have been some posts purged. I sense a conspiracy to keep us from reaching the magical 200th page

I don't think this would be a valid option, Anders; we were just goofing round with Andrew. It'd be a great option, tho.

No fights ever since Mr @terrysumner has been appointed the keeper of the sanity on this thread. I mean, Steve asks Terry to check only this thread on the whole site twice an hour, 24/7.

Lol....no, no big purge. But I did get rid of that whole "Chinese face" thing from a ways back.

 Fretting over pictures for 80-90 pages. It will be nice to see the plastic in the - plastic.
