  1. i find what is going on quite disgusting. On one mans word with nothing written to confirm what he said from those that matter everyone has immediately jumped to conclusions the opposite what is published on the WW site. When and what WW choose to do us up to them and its certainly not up to some random to publish information true or “not” without being official. We now have people running around commenting that your money isnt safe with a WW purchase. Its quite disgusting anyone with this info would release it on a non official level damaging the brand to score internet traffic. If Peter Jackson had come to me and said “Hey Dazz things look pretty grim” i can tell you the very last place id be writing it is on the internet. Its up to him to put that out when he wants and in an appropriate format and manner. Its up to WW to broadcast their intentions which they have now very clearly and nobody else. I only hope this has not damaged their brand but he has certainly cost them sales. Utterly disgraceful.
  2. Ill be queueing up for like 5 of these things and hoping a YF-12 makes an appearance as well as a seperate kit or conversion box set.
  3. Got mine a few days ago. Simply gorgeous. Beautiful tooling will grab a second..
  4. Have you actually trued to build the thing? It us quite possibly the worst engineered, poorly fitting kit ever in the history if modelling. I cant recall a kit with poorer fit in 40 years of building kits and a complete contrast to the 262 they released at the same time. I fave up on this kit as life is to short to deal with poorly designed garbage like this kit. I have kept the weapons for my Trumpeter versions which go together well, dont have the huge spine issue but more impirtantly they fit. The Trumpy kit goes together with typical Trumpeter engineering so 85% well 15% some filler and sanding ie no issues. The Revell build is a shambles from start to when you throw it against the wall in disgust. This is typical Revell Hornet experience. https://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?/topic/79865-revell-bug/
  5. Cant wait to see both these SR-71’s... Hoping Revell will not screw the pooch like they did with the big Hornet..
  6. Dragon is repopping the 188 next month.. Imagine it will be cheaper in the EU from Revell but ill be grabbing it sooner rather than waiting for Revell..
  7. Cant wait to see the 27’s. The new boxing of the 35 with the ground attack weapons is fabulous. GWH are doing great stuff.
  8. Quite possibly the worst kit i have ever tried to build in 40 years of modelling. Makes the engine sections on the 48th B-1 look great. horrendous and hard to believe to gorgeous 262 single seater in 32 is from the same company. What went wrong...?
  9. I think almost everything AMK has done has been a lesson in how to not release a model kit. Now i own 6 Mig-31’s and gave supported them financially. A list of what not to do. 1 Never say your kit will be the best most accurate ever released of a particular aircraft...ever. 2 invite expert help and opinion then when it shows clear issues in your project ignore them and dont fix problems with no commentary as to why. 3 Flood social media with images saying kits shipping very soon when it was not because the instructions had not even been printed. 4 Pretend issues which are patently obvious to the blindest more one eyed observer dont exist and everyone is out to get you..even people who have significantly supported you financially buying previous kits and trying to assist you when you requested help early in the project. 5 Run a fake info campaign to discredit anyone with any negative view on your kit by stirring social media at every opportunity to discredit anyone commenting on accuracy issues as “haters”. This quickly descends into a spiral of inflammatory posts and you discredit yourself in the modelling community. 6 Get yourself a decent distribution network..there are numerous countries you cant even order them in being forced to pay huge shipping costs. 7 The serious guys who want accuracy are the big buyers...the guys buying 6-12 kits each so you lose them at your own risk by ignoring them and dismissing/attacking them. Amk after the Mig-31 had a stellar reputation but the F-14. Its delays, people complaining about pre orders unshipped and everyone seemingly having them and building them months ago except those who did support Amk by pre ordering even in the face of the gorgeous Tamiya F-14 have left it in tatters. I have 4 on pre order, still unshipped like everyone else. I can live with those upper rear fuse non existant curves etc so will build them. No more AMK pre orders for me though and AMK has lost the support of many people in the community over its behaviour with this kit.
  10. How many people got Mustangs with the bent spar on the lower wing. I have 4 all bent to various degrees. Hoping they fix the wing tooling to fix it on an otherwise beautiful kit.
  11. Glad i have several on pre order. All that work and they couldnt be bothered to get the rear fuse curves correct. Amazing engineering but its going to take a bit of work to smooth that air bag, rear fuselage curve into something close to what the real F-14 has. Amazing yet disappointing all at the same time. Certainly an amazing piece of engineering and be happy to build them but every time i look at the rear fuselage once you know whats wrong its like a pimple in the middle of your chin before a Saturday night dance....
  12. I must say having a look replacing that front windscreen with an F-104 one will give a very much improved front end. Both look very similar and will make a good substitute.
  13. Picked one up in Tokyo yesterday and just finshed a quick eyeball comparison with Modelvits Blinder. Basic shape and dimensions seem to match up ie wing size, shape etc. id say from a Mk1 eyeball perspective its a solid kit. The coke bottle effect is more subtle tham Modelsvit. General detail is better on Modelsvit ie variety in panel lining, detail with scoops etc. Engineering is easier on Trump kit by some margin, two entire fuse halves etc. Trump has better clear parts. Overall seems like a decent purchase that will build into a slightly less detailed Blinder than Modelsvit but give a far easier build due to the non multi part fuselage and no warping etc prevalent in the MV kit. Have not tried fitting the Barracuda stuff but id be using the engines and wheels for sure. Paid 8800¥?
  14. Just a thought but the “overpriced Sparrow shooter” has been carrying Amraams since the last century and somewhat more successful at distributing Mig parts than any other aircraft in history...
