AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

I think there was some one who posted pics on this thread of the AMK wings on the Tamiya kit. I think the AMK wings would be a more accurate option for dirty wings. I may be wrong, but I thought I read something about the connecting points/hinges for the Hasegawa wing have problems. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. I may be mixing it up with some other kit. To bad you can't get the KASL wing set. It is quite nice. The quality of detail matches that of the Tamiya kit very well. I modified mine so that I could remove them after the fuselage was closed up. That took a little work, otherwise it would have fit quite well.


The Hasegawa wings are missing the hinges and some actuators. Corrections covered in this article.

I’ll condense that review.

 

”Buon Giorno!

Mama Mia! Thisa AMK F-14D, she’s-a notta box-shaker! She’s-a make me use modeling skills! I’m-a not so good atta test-fit, so I masha these parts together best I can! She is what she is!

Arrivederci!”

 

Dude put the seats together wrong, mixing up the left and right halves so he ended up with one long canopy breaker on each seat. Whoops. The canopy, she doesn’t fit!

 

All kidding aside, the Conclusions section is pretty much spot on. 

 

The issue "feature" with the canopy isn't caused by ejection seats.

See  here, no ejection seat, same problem: https://www.modelingtime.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=19479&start=60

And more interesting, you can see the same "feature"  on a model magazine cover:

This is optical illusion.

Last photo can be explained by poor skills of the, so called, "modeller".

Given by the rest of the construction visible, especially the paint finish, I think the skills of the modeler aren't the problem

More so the skills of the mold maker.

oh WOW! I see it now. Those wings are WAAAAY too short and not even close to the right shape. It's hard to tell from some angles but these pictures clear it up. (what? oh we're not talking about the wings?) OH, well then....nevermind.:woot.gif:

 

Sorry, couldn't resist.

:doh:Oh, niart17, fella... those are clearly embryonic wings, from a just hatched bird. Don't you just see how stubby its beak is? Still blinded by the tape on its windshield.

His comment was ironic.

 

 

 

Truth is this specific build was designed with opened canopy, it's the VF-213 CAG Bird on the right* here:

Editor or builder 'd choose, for the magazine's cover, to present it with closed canopy maybe bc the compressed NLG, it makes more sense.

 

*Note the VF-103 CAG bird got it too.

 

 

 

 

The other VF-213 CAG bird we already saw here:

Shion, are you just looking for ways to bash the AMK kit? We get it. You don't like it. We get it. There are problems. But it's getting very tiring having you post different builds trying to prove your point. Did I mention that we get it? Hammering the same point over and over again doesn't make you more right. It's just annoying. Everything you show doesn't make it a bad kit, it just makes it not as a good as Tamiya. I think everyone would agree with that. So what is your purpose to continually posting builds of the AMK kit? 

Hi,

 

Don't worry, he did exactly the same on at least one french modelling forum a while ago, all his posts being about the fact that the AMK kit will never hit the market etc etc .. and again and again and again. Then the kit popped up and now all his posts are about the kit defaults, innacurracies, wrong shapes and on and on and on ...
Guess he's kind of obsessive/disturbed somehow but don't know/understand exactly why.

Also, whatever the topic, he knows. Better than anyone will ever do.
Seems to be a real crusade for him. Weird behavior anyway.

Just one indication of how doubtful and nefarious your post is:

last time I posted something in the AMK Tomcat topic on the one and unique french board I frequent was... in November 2018.

Funny you talk about nefarious posts 😜

However you're perfectly right and I should have been more precise : your last post on this french forum about the fact that AMK's F-14 would never reach production status dates from this period of time indeed. One more proof (if needed) and as already written that your insistance does not make you right.
Nothing doubtful here.

The last post I made on the topic about this kit, was in November 2018, and it was an answer to someone taking as granted a release date given by Hobbyeasy .

Where I explained how the Hobbyeasy site works and the fact that the owner as everybody else, didn't know the real release date, and is always forced to give a real (if he got one) or an hypothetical one, due to the site features.

 

We saw this sketch here again, again and again, so I thought it was a good advise to inform someone to not take this "info" as granted.

Funny that more than fourteen months later, someone try now to use this last post to show how much I talk about this kit elsewhere.

 

And yes, your previous post and this one are doubtful and nefarious.

And you know perfectly what you're doing, you would quickly be called out trying this stunt other there, reason why you use a alt-account now.

Oh well, you already checked my profile 😂. Too bad, but this is not an alternative account. Believe it or not (I don't mind though), this is my one and only ARC account. Being affirmative (like being insistant) does not make you right either. And for that instance you're wrong.

 

Anyway, the point is that you keep bashing AMK on ARC the same way you were already bashing a few years ago whereas the kit was not even real plastic.

Like some other people, I find your behaviour a little bit obsessive and agressive. And like some other people I wonder what's behind.

 

Simple as that. Just curious.

You guys! The Iowa Caucus debacle! I CAN'T DECIDE!!!!

 

What? Was this a discussion of the AMK kit in Iowa? Did they have nice pictures with red lines? Sorry I missed it but the only TV I watch is old reruns of various Star Trek series. They've been running Deep Space Nine lately, not my favorite but what's a mother to do? :naughty:

ahhh....is that who that was? Kind of seemed familiar but didn't put that together. Honestly, I don't like it when anyone gets banned. I'm against it but understand the thought behind the practice. It is what it is.

Just out of interest, was there an announcement somewhere of the ban? If not, how did you find out?

Ya know I thought that's who that was all along. Glad to see the Admin's finally caught up with him.

Admin's only caught up to him because he was reported, maybe by others prior but by me yesterday. Same story for his previous accounts.
