Wish they would hurry up, and bring out a 'late' F-14A with all the bombcat goods! :pray:

Rumor has it that Tamiya is planning a "F-14A (Late)/ F-14B" kit like their F-16C/N "Aggressor/Adversary" release. 

That would be amazing. So many schemes, so little time!

I just finished casting a conversion with everything you need. The 48ers should have them shortly when his order gets to him and Sprue Bros. will have it when I take his order up on Monday.

Will sprue brothers be getting more soon ?  They are sold out

I'm casting more over the next couple of weeks and will get them to him. I'm getting my classroom up and running, which is taking most of my time.

Thanks. It's not Eduard or Quickboost, but it does the job at an affordable price.

Maybe, but your masters and casting have improved alot since you began Darren. 

 

And you still offer a whole lot that others won't even begin to think of.

See if Darren was a science or art teacher... he could teach is class how molding and casting works. He would have free labor...... just saying.

I already tried it. I ran into child labor laws because they were only 9 and 10 years old. 😂

There is a family exemption to child labor laws, so most rules don't apply.

 

I didn't think about that! I do tell them that we spend so much time together during the school year that we're like a family.

I recently had the realization that the Tamiya F-14D kit, the Steel Beach B conversion, and a spare Sprue K from the F-14A kit made for a better Late A conversion than trying to update the A kit. Especially if you're going for an OEF or OIF jet.

 

Maybe they'll actually release a B/Late A kit about this time next year.
