G.W.H - 1/72 F-14D TOMCAT

Recommended Posts

It's a bit shame that the FM kit only has a clean wing option. Now if GWH gets this otherwise right I'm tempted to postpone my Fine Molds order... It certainly looks good on these photos.

Sharp looking images for a 1/72 F-14 kit. If GWH pulls this off I may spring for a couple.

 

Regards.

Starting a pool: which Tomcat kit hits the shelves first - GWH or AMK ?

Now I have some interest in the 1/48th F14a as long as it's pre 1975. Yet I'm good for at least one, unless I can lay my hands on the Fine Molds kit.

Well GWH do their releases in 48 and 72 so how far away is the 48th one?

Prob a year or so but based off the SU-35 it will be a ripper.

Sooner than that Hobbyboss 1/72 A-4 Skyhawk family that they have announced for about 5 or 6 years now...…….

It's a shame GWH only have the dirty wing option, leaving the modeller to pack everything away for an accurate Tomcat on the ground. An extra pair of clean wings (like AMK are doing in the 48th one - kudos for that!) would have my money. I just have to hope the upcoming Academy new tool is clean, as the FM D is unavailable as a standalone kit, and the A is out there but not terribly easy to find.

I have one of the Fine Molds kits, which are very nice. I'll pick one of these up and see how they compare. I'm looking forward to having all of them on the shelf!

Maybe it's the camera, but the nose contours look suspect to my eyes.

I think it’s the photo, I saw other pictures and it looked normal.

Panel lines looks rather wide and not so subtle for me. Look at the panel lines on F-14D Fine Molds and compare:

I'm not completely convinced that the F-14 that was on display was the final kit. The fit and finish of the F-15J and F-15C that we're on display right next to it were far far better. It was almost like they were molded by two companies. We will see once released.

I would say absolutely not.

GWH sample was apparently made by the 3D print parts, which was only to check the propotion.

Their Japanese agent Pit Road forgot to mention that on the label.

Has anybody seen this little news???

It is a 14D Tomcat and its is due in June. OK which year you can ask. As far as it is know in 2019. So it is just around the corner.

For anyone like me, who are not on fakebook. Here is a handful of G.W.H images of the new kit

It is visible that there are several options in the kit including two versions of the wing.

Here is the dirty one

and the fully closed confuguration

It is visible that the radar is also made for this kit as an extra.
