isn't HK models the company that got their start ripping a guy off for his B-25 cad?

 

You may want to get your facts right on that.....

If GWH can do it faster and better then they're free to do so..not stepping on toes or trying to preserve feelings doesn't work in a competitive market 

 

Exactly, McDonald’s isn’t the only fast food business that sells burgers.

We need to forget about F-14s, we're dying for another BF-109 in 1/48 !

And a P-51D!

Saw this photo which was allegedly taken at the All Japan Hobby Show happening now. Wonder if this one or AMK’s will be released first.

So much for new tool:

 

A-10C

Su-25 series

Su-27SM

Su-30 Series

Su-32/34 series

F-111 Series

B-26K Counter Invader

F-15SG

F-15SA

F-15K (Pit Road/DToys already)

 

And could this be the actual AMK kit itself? Ancient Alien theorists say "yes"!

looks good...I may add one to the pile just for comparison...what would be a shame is if we get the 2 D's and 2 A's but never get the B ....

Its a little different than AMKs. Looks like GWH has a one piece clear part with framing that fits over it. AMK has a two part canopy with the pieces fitting between the frames. It'll be interesting to see if GWH can get the frame thin enough so it doesn't stick up above the clear part. On the real thing the frame appears to be flush with the clear sections.

Exactly, I’ve read a lot of people say they look the same. They don’t at all, AMKs is two piece.

This is why, even if it's a more old-school method, I prefer canopies and framing all molded together, at least on the outside. Otherwise, you risk having the frame stick-up or having to make the clear part thick enough to accomodate the framing, which leads to more visual distortion than is necessary. But hey, cool gimmicks sell.
