Tamiya 1/48th Lockheed F-35 A Lightning II-Item#: 61124

Recommended Posts

It's certainly a Tamiya new tool, the test build really looks spot on, it is the only one so far that has picked up the strangely different angles of the pylons , among many other shape issues that previous kits all have got wrong: wing fuselage transition, very slight curved spine/top fuselage instead of perfectly straight, nose side profile... it all looks right here.


OK, it's official now.

Could you be so kind and show me where there is written "new tool" there?
I can't find it, ansd I do believe I am not blind. 🙂

See Dave’s reply

When has Tamiya ever said “new tool” ?they didn’t with the announcements for F-14 or F-4 or P-38, why so adamant the F-35 is not a “new tool”

So once again you're being argumentative just for the sake of it. Stop being so freaking petty.

Please try to understand what I am talking about. If you cannot, please ask, and I will explain. And please don't be so rude, ok?

I just asked a question about what you posted.  You questioned whether it was a new tool kit, and then you later said “I know that is a new tool kit”.  Is that not correct?  The answer is yes or no.



 Maybe too much glue?

Page number 2 and no single word of criticism while it's obvious that the RAM panels are unacceptable. I guess that's why some people are questioning whether it is Tamiya tooling.

The pictures are of poor quality, but I also think the RAMs are too pronounced. Too pronounced as for Tamiya kit.
