  1. This is the Tamiya 1/48 kit with DXM VF-1 Wolfpack decals. These are my favorite markings for the F-14, and I was glad to finally be able to build this. No dramas with the kit (as expected), and I just used Eduard wheels and the Quickboost gun vents, probe, and beavertail in addition to the decals. This is also my first venture into 1/48 scale in years, and I was pleasantly surprised with the experience. Flankers next! Cheers, Tom
  2. Gaz, Thanks! I should have been paying more attention to your build for inspiration! Cheers, Tom Rob, Thank you! This kit was a pretty fast build, with a one-piece forward fuselage, fins integral with the fuselage sides, and a modular construction that has joins coincide with panel lines. Oh, and rear view mirrors, which is missing from the Tamiya kit. Plus, AMK listened to modelers input after the first release and added missing features such as seatbelts and metal landing gear. What’s not to love? Cheers, Tom
  3. Thanks Martin! I should have posted the build here, but it was so fast I built it in three weeks. Hope you are doing well. Cheers, Tom
  4. Just catching up; I have this kit in my stash, and I am taking notes! Great work so far. Cheers, Tom
  5. This is AMK's superlative 1/48 MiG-31BM/BSM special edition kit, with metal landing gear, photoetch, and extra decals. It was a buddy build with Tamiya's 1/48 Tomcat, and this was definitely the better kit in terms of detail, ease of assembly, and value for the cost ($67 US)--and that is something, considering how good the Tamiya kit is! Begemot decals, Eduard photoetch seatbelts, Fox-One canopy decals, and that was about it. This and the Tamiya Tomcat has been my first venture back into 1/48 in years, and they definitely take up less room!  Cheers, Tom
