  1. John, criticising a British company is very unsporting. Please pull yourself together and criticise Far Eastern companies only. Marc.

    KittyHawk Voodoo! 1/48?

    Hi all, I'm doing the Canadian B version in white. KH quotes USN White. Is this correct or should it be a more brilliant white? Thanks for helping out.

    Fightersweep, you're right on the money. Chinese manufacturers get flak which is way out of proportion. I think it's a subconscious superiority complex personally. Three guesses who's gonna get some flak now.
  4. Take it easy get well soon, its only a kit, your health is far more important.
  5. Thanks Mike, I'll wager it's on the shelves within 6 weeks (I'll probably regret that).
  6. Well Mike maybe you should (mail Sio). If you like I could do that for you. Do you have is address? Thanks, Marc. Oop, that's his not is.
  7. Thanks for the heads-up Helmsman. That would be the 31. a pleasure to build, as I'm confidant the F-14 will be.
  8. But is that a problem? All we need to do is wait a while. As somebody said it is great to see the little guy win. And electric toothbrushes are excellent too - not just for teeth but for getting dust out of all the F-14 nooks and crannies after sanding, But I'll bet not much sanding will be required (and to be fair the same goes for the Tamiya F-14 which is a joy - mine's wheels up and everything still pretty much fits perfectly despite that's it's not an 'official' option). My AMK Mig-25 was a great build and I'll bet ya a Hasegawa F-14 this one will be too.

    1/48 F-14A Tomcat in 2016 and F-14D in 2018!

    Giorgio, Robert, Thanks for the sanity check guys! I just read these threads now and again, especially on the Tamiya and upcoming AMK Tomcat, and am seldom tempted to post but your feedback hits the spot. I'm gonna get poo-poo for this but some of these guys are amazing (I edited my original term) - I thought rivet counters were mythical beings but I fear now they really do exist. And that guy with all the Hasegawa Tomcats - I assure you he does need help - if not now, certainly in a few years or so. This hobby is supposed to be a hobby - to build things - to be creative - there's a fine line between hobby and obsession, and some have obviously (and inadvertently) crossed it.
  10. Hi all, Does anyone know if the FS colours for the US Navy version in this kit are correct? Especially the white underside seems in correct with the FS35237 upper body seems wrong. Help appreciated. Thanks
