AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

Picture is not useless because it is not trying to compare the size of the waist, but the shape of the curve, to show that the curve is not overemphasized as stated by some.

 

If both fuselages aren't aligned, yes, the picture itself is useless, there's no discussion.

And here comes red, green and blue lines.... sorry dude but you can not compare like thins, for a bunch of reasons. And if i need to have precise meassures with a tool and red green and blue lines to se the differences compared to another kit, not the real thing, they I can't take this to be some major fault in shape

 

Both kits are representations in 1/48 of the same a/c, so of course we can compare thins.

And it's not my fault if AMK is unable to provide decent top/side/bottom pics of their own kit, I say "unable" but we all know it's not a question of ability but something else.

As I said on facebook...I think the biggest shape issue is in the engine fairing for the AMK model...it angles in too sharply which enhances the shape difference. If the fairing was more shallow and gentle in the curve I suspect the shape issue would largely vanish

 

 True indeed.

there is always discussion

 

Look, you made your point, I do not want to convince you that the kit is perfect.  and if you are so annoyed with the issues you found, than it is best for you to pass this kit... others will accept it as is... so will I

I know it is though to accept it, but it really is not THAT big issue.... if it even is one

You know, it's possible to discuss without insulting people you're not agree with or talking about their suicide.

Last time you did it here, few months ago, it was already enough.

 

It's pretty strange that, because someone on the internet doesn't share your views about a model kit, you think it's wise to attack him and insult him personally on different forum boards, differents countries, different languages.

If you're affiliated with AMK, it's really not the best move you can play.

If you aren't, you certainly don't help them behaving like this.

I agree; as if attacks and personal insults will ever change things regarding the issues one sees in the AMK kit... :rolleyes: 

Lighten up, madcop. Go get some fresh air.

Pretty sad to be talking about someone committing suicide and then add a smiley face emoji.  What does it take to get banned at ARC?

Well, technically it's not big but optically it matters. Human eye (not everyones apparently) can be "tricked" easily, sometimes even 1mm may make significan difference, especially when you are used to some shapes. I can assure you, that if I draw square and then bend one side by 1 pixel your eye will see difference and brain will tell you that something's wrong - you won't see much difference looking closely, but your brain will realize "it's not a square". 

As you see on Tamiyas model  upper and bottom side lines are different, meanwhile on AMK they go along. And I believe that's - as my brain says - is also wrong.

 

Edit.

In fact, both bottom lines seem to be exactly same. the difference is in upper side fuselage lines. This is why on exactly top comparisons both look the same, but adding the angle and light the difference is visible.

 

 

I told this a week ago 😄

That picture is almost prefect to see the curves on both models.

Where is the insult ? I said I liked him . Now, if you do not understand the second part of of my phrase and the context , you're definitely not that smart !  

I thought that Shion is sooo much involved in this bl...y piece of plastic , that if it would happened that he was wrong  he could even think about suicide ... 

That all said with tongue in cheek for sure !

 

I don't need to lighten up and I have enough fresh air , thanks !

And if you think for a minute that all this litterature is going to make AMK change his mind...you must be dreaming !

Madcop 😍

I figured the most accurate F-14 model kit ever wouldn't have even that issue.

well, you still didn't prove there is an issue. I don't see it. No evidence 😅 and, even if there is, how do you know it still isn't the most accurate F-14 🙂

Please compare top lines of fuselage side (bottom lines on the photo then). Are you sure they are identical? 

 

What I honestly see here, is that Tamiya butt is more curvy that AMK. I generally love curves, so most probably will have to buy both. One A and one D. And then compare on my shelves.

 

Back to the topic: make ❤️ no war!

 

Cheers....

It made the jump from sandbox to cat litter box a long time ago. Ironically, there’s a lot of waste in the box but no cat yet...

It looks more like a case of “not wanting to see” than cant see.

its plainly obvious to every observer except you that the kits curves are far to large.

The pic above shows clearly its far to curved. The fuse starts wider ends up narrower then finishes wider again.

Some wont care some will.Unfortunately for Amk those who do care are the F-14 lovers who buy multiple multiple kits.

No amount of wriggling on “photo angles are not identical” can hide that rear fuselage problem its simply obvious.

As i said ill still buy one.

But if done right i would of bought 6 or 7.
