Wow! Superb! And it's even much harder to get despite of all those issues the kit has. Truly master piece!


I agree, damn fine job.

Beautiful job. Thanks for posting and for pointing out the things you feel could use improving. Kind of the point of this board I'd say. I don't ever recall ANYONE saying the kit is unbuildable but I guess some people read things differently. Outstanding work! the paint job is especially convincing!

Could it be worse than Hasegawa’s kits?


In some areas, it's on par with the Hasegawa kit, especially the intake ramp area. Overall, I think it's slightly better than the Hasegawa as far as fiddly construction, but I still probably won't build another one.

After 4 months of work, here is my build of the AMK 1/48 F-14D Tomcat.







I added a few items to the build...

  • Resin wheels.
  • P/E seat belts.
  • Intake covers made from Tamiya tape.
  • A radar assembly from a Hobby Boss Tomcat kit.

The fit tolerances were very tight. All matting/gluing surfaces had to be sanded or the parts would not fit. There are lots of small parts that need careful attention when gluing/attaching. I was surprised how well the Hobby Boss radar set parts fit. Just a little white glue to fill in and it worked great!

The model was airbrushed using MM Acrylics. I also used "Flory models dark-dirt wash" to highlight the panel lines. The decals where from the kit.

Hope you like it!
