Question? Is there anyone else here who preordered AND paid for the kit from Sincere Hobby? If so, have you heard anything about your preorder at all? The two kits i paid for way back when (In May 2017, as fortunately I posted in this thread (page 55 lol) that I had done so!) don't even show up in my account record. I guess I better try to locate the cc purchase.

Me too, i made the order: 20/12/2017, they still no send it, just waiting.

They could be drawings made by Furball also.

Sorry, I missed your previous post suggesting that that might be the case:

Interesting but are you sure about that ? I have verified this for KH, HB/Trumpy and GWH who make the decal designs themselves but in the case of AMK it's Furball that did the decal design so things could have been different. In other words I think you may have done a Tamiya vs Furball overlay.

 

Furball Geoff is a great guy and does great work so I wouldn't want to drag him into this mess.
The old drawing that shion posted is one that Geoff had previously used with his own products. I don't know if he drew it himself or used some other drawing. It doesn't quite match the Grumman drawing (or the Tamiya lines), but it's got a lot going for it and is certainly good enough for decal placement charts.
Because I didn't want to drag Geoff into this, I didn't discuss his previous drawing or include it in the overlays because it's different enough from the AMK drawing that I don't think they're related.
Whether he drew the new decal placement drawings, I don't know. It seems unlikely that he would have drawn it from scratch though (that's a lot of work considering AMK already has it on their computer). It seems more likely that AMK provided him line drawings for him to fill in the blanks or AMK did the placement charts themselves using his provided decal artwork.
That's what we did with the HazMAT Bronco. Steve at AOA decals provided his old placement charts, the new decal artwork (and a whole bunch more help!) and I did the color decal profiles using HazMAT provided CAD profiles. I colored in the CADs,  placed the decals, consulted with Steve and got his approval for the finished profiles (Thank you again Steve!).

 

It would be nice if AMK could confirm that these drawings match the CAD (or share their CAD related profiles). If not, I'm sure that somebody with the kit will get around to scanning the instruction drawings, scaling them and comparing to the plastic.

 

If AMK wants to crowdsource development help on future projects (as they have indicated they will on the F-104), I'd recommend that they share enough info that the crowd has a clear picture during the development.

 

:cheers:

Yeah im in the same state. I contacted them about it a while back and it turns out that if your a new customer and create an account on checkout it considered a guess checkout hence dosent appear in your account. 

Thanks for that, that does help. Did they charge you additional shipping recently?

I had no chance to choice my shipping type, nobody asked me. Have no idea why.

I got the same  thing, I had to change my credit card # as it had been so long since the order that it had expired, if I had known what the shipping cost was I might have re considered the order.

So the kit comes without ordinance then, just like Hasegawa's? 

The kit does come with ordnance.

Fantastic work so far FishboneInc but,  your markings are pre-Lantirn era. VF-31's Deltas DID NOT have the GPS dome on the spine until @ 2000 timeframe.

Via Surface of course… 😄

 

They must be moving these kits out at light speed. Mine is now confirmed and ready to ship and I didn't preordered until the middle of August.

Yep, just got notice today from Megahobby that my model has been shipped as of today.  I'd placed my preorder with them on August 30, and I had totally forgotten that I had done so.  I did recall that I have 2 Tamiya P-38s on order with them, so I'm confident I'll be getting those as soon as they are available.  I also got one of my two Eduard P-51Ds as a preorder from Megahobby, and I actually received that model several days before the kit was even supposed to be released.  Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing the details of the AMK F-14D.  I'm loving the flaps and spoilers on the wings, and I will, for sure, be building at least one of mine with full forward wings and deployed flight controls.  I have a Tamaya F-14D that I can build with clean wings!

Anyone order from Victory Models? I made my "pre order" today but the confirmation email says, "getting my order ready to ship"

I think I put in a pre-order with Victory, but haven't heard a thing.  Or, maybe I didn't actually do the preorder thing.  I traded some e-mails with Bob Busby from Victory back on July 30 about putting in a preorder, but I'm not sure I followed through with it.  He was very nice and cordial.  In any event, I'm not seeing anything at Victory about the AMK F-14.

 Well, that's good to hear, at least for me. I put in my Pre-order back in May of '17, and I think the wait will be over soon. All I know for sure, is that this kit will be worth the wait.

Same here, got an email from Bob back then saying it is all set and they'll contact me when they get the kit. So it should be pretty soon I guess.

Just got my shipping notice from Hobbyeasy. Looks like we'll all soon have the kits and can restart the argument discussion about accuracy. :whistle:

 Yes, I was. I gave in to the Dark side.....

 

 Wakonda IS in South Dakota, though. Unlike Themyscira. I HAVE been looking for that place!
