1/32 Phoenix pallet correction

Recommended Posts

Now available from https://zactomodels.com/

Designed to fit the Trumpeter 1/32 F-14 kits.

Though these parts look very similar to the kits parts, if you look carefully, there is a difference:

Rather than replace the whole pallet, which would be expensive, I decided to just replace the most offensive part. While the detail Trumpeter provides on the rear portion isn't the most accurate :rolleyes:, it does look good with paint and a wash and not that difficult for the modeler to improve if so desired.

Again, you have to really look close...

Nope, you definitely don't have to look close. The difference is more than obvious. Awesome job as always and much needed.

Will order right away.

 

Cheers for that!

It's almost a shame to put those masterfully crafted resin parts on that sorry plastic kit. Trumpeter should at least try to redeem themselves by fixing the port-side forward fuselage. Anyway, I don't want to detract from the topic at hand.

 

For anyone hesitating to purchase--don't! Based on the F-14 intake parts I have, the casting quality is excellent, and I say this as someone who does a lot of molding and casting.

Thanks for the nice comments! :rolleyes:

 

Taking a suggestion from the pallet thread in the "LSP Discussion" forum, I'm now shipping these in padded envelopes (bubble lined) and have slashed the S&H cost.

International S&H reduced from $14.75 to $7.50 (Canadians can e-mail me for an additional $0.75 discount).

U.S. rate reduced from $4.10 to $1.75.

Combined shipping (of pallets only) is possible using these padded envelopes. I can fit up to 6 sets and S&H only goes up slightly.

 

:cheers:
