Iran-Iraq War: A ceasefire is agreed after almost eight years of war.

 

Well since we have an Iranian Tomcat how about an Iraqi mirage f1?

I believe these posts are alluding to a date rather than to their content. All three topics are associated with August 20th. Release date perhaps?

And are quotes of the according Wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/August_20

So it seems Daniel is right with August 20th.

If it is an August release date then that's awesome! That would be something like five months from Tamiya having made the announcement that they are producing a 1/48 F-14D to actually releasing it to us modelers...that's how its done:thumbsup:! This kit will be another big seller for Tamiya.

Okay, my colleague sent a message with the box art.  Super cool.  Can’t wait until you guys see it.  The box will be bigger with more goodies.

 

The RIO reinforcement panel for the boarding step is present.

 

Confirmed AN/ALQ-167 included.

So excited to see this kit!

Is Fightertown 48085 "TOMCATS AT WAR - F-14A/B/D for Tamiya" still going to be released?

I love the schemes in it, especially VF-31 AJ-104, and waiting for it since 2016.

Looking forward for this beautiful decal !!!

May I ask which squadron is on the box art?

So exciting, looking forward for information from SHIZUOKA HOBBY SHOW tomorrow.

I dont know much about F-14s as I never had much interest in this plane but oh my God! this kit looks super awesome. 

 

Tamiya makes such wonderful weapons. Wonder why dont they release their weapons as a separate set?

Looks very nice!  Anyone know anything about them upscaling this to 1/32 scale?  Since I just bought the old kit and a whole bunch of aftermarket items you know that will be the case.  🙂
