The only thing left to wish for are Brazilian AF decals 😜

The brazilian AMX has a different front. 

 

The Italian is armed with a rotary Vulcan cannon, the Brazilian have two DEFA fixed barrel.

That looks like very similar artwork to the Italeri 'New This Year' AMX that appeared in their catalogues many , many years ago before the 2019 mention and perhaps even pre-dating internet modeling sites , think that there was to be a twin-seater as well back then as well.

Thanks Luis, I knew there was a difference, just wasn't sure what!

Italeri's usual vaporware.

 

That is why I said hopefully!

I am of course glad to see the announcement, although I'll be really happy when I see the kit on the shelves... I've heard some rumours but I do not know how much truth is in them, in any case the rumours seem to be positive... for what they are worth.

I'll not sell my Cunardmodel resin kit yet though !

You could always rob one out of their F-104G kit, or get a DACO one.

Note the Italeri version in their RF-104G update to the venerable ESCI Starfighter tooling is a later version, with the enlarged forward section/downward angle of the bottom keel similar to this:

The standard version as produced by DACO has a constant cross-section central section. Not sure if the AMX used/uses both versions or not, I knoe the standard type was used on F-16s by the Netherlands and Belgium.

V.P.

AMX single seat!! That’s got to mean there will be an AMX two seat. Just AMX would do if it didn’t need to be distinguished from another kit  —-Jaguar single seat, Jaguar twin seat, etc, etc.

Thanks for all the input on the Orpheus recce pod.  I Knew about the F-104G kit having one but I didn't realize the dramatic difference in the variants of the Pod.  Very interesting.

This is fantastic! In 2000 I flew from Canada to attend RIAT and saw the AMX for the first time and instantly loved the looks of it. I’ll definitely be getting this kit as soon as it’s available.
