  • Homebee changed the title to 1/48 - Grumman F-14D Super Tomcat by AvantGarde Model Kits (AMK) - new boxing

I'm not a registered Facebook user so I couldn't see what the differences were, but am I correct the change is in decals only?

It's on their fan club page, not the companies facebook page, so I can't see the announcement either.

I wonder if the Sio Models branding will be on this re-release like on the new boxings of the Foxhound kits?

Either way, I filled my 1/48 F-14D tank up when Tamiya had a sale at the Chino Air Show.:cake:

A box art change would indicate a change in decals and I believe that's what you were pointing to. You're probably very right.

Had to check my boxing to remind myself of the decal options and yes the new boxart scheme is not there. So chances are there will be new decals but there is no mention of it in their announcement 🤔

Nice box art but I won't buy it, I just begin the first build from one of two AMK's Tomcat D cos I have two boxes of this excellent model but I won't buy an other D version. Any rumour if AMK is working on a new model?

according to Sio the change is only for the box art and decals ! some people like it some don't i do prefer this one rather then the almost perfect tamiya which is great kit of course! and i did corrected the back shape with that depression only by put the plastic under the running hot water ant the angle of the refuelling probe ! quinta studio cockpit decals and res kit exhaust resin nozzle

Hi, All,

As we did too many of the weapons for this F-14D, we are adding one more kit, let's called it the bombcat, kit number 88011.

Plastics are pretty much the same, while we changed AIM-54 to GBU-16 and GBU-31. Hope you like it!

We will start sending to our distributor in one week. If you would like to have one, please contact them!

Thank you very much!

AMK

Probably favourite scheme!

VF-31 Tomcatters with black tail and rainbow 🌈  sunburst!

199X?

 

Not sure though if the 2000lb JDAM back then.... anyone knows for certain?
