ekard-ynot got mine now (just arrived in ustralia) - it's slowing being shipper around the world... small company, so can't do a tamiya style global availability in an instance... and WORTH the wait.

Soeren . The problem is not the point of a small company, its more the point that they dont have distributors everywhere.
In Germany for example is no official distributor for AMK kits, which means that you currently can't buy AMK kits in Germany.
Gluefinger AMK are beginning to seriously p*ss me off with their vapourware campaign for this product.
For months now, they have bee insinuating that the release is just around the corner. See, for example, the thread on Britmodeller, where in November 2016 it was stated by "Martin @ AMK Hobby" that "Release date will be very very soon".
To me, this seems like a plot trying to stop people from buying competitors' products.
Had they been more honest I would have been willing to wait longer, but as it is, I have finally lost all trust in their announcements, and will throw my money in Tamiya's direction. As I will with ICM as they also have a product available that is sort of "announced" by AMK, but, considering the state of the AMK F-14, probably years away...
Mathijs Beenhakker Wauw! you guys make a lot of assumptions about me...but what can i expect from "Hace folks"....No its not the area behind the wing gloves in front of the rear wings/elevators but at the time of my comment i saw the kit reviewed on "Florry models" and the area around the rear elevators was much too curved around the rear end of the engine shrouds....This issue has clearly been addressed because the final release was again delayed even though Florry was send the kit as the final product...But you guys have fun with your SJW discussion and maybe next time look at the date of my comment and maybe exercise some patience and wait for my answer instead of acting like blue haired fishmouths

Soeren . Well let's say that you started the assumptions with this kind of comment:
"Great way to pile your company into the ground"
And btw. nice way of insulting people

Gluefinger Will the trolls please get their coats at the reception and leave my thread. Thank you. And please remember we're all grownups who have nothing better to do than obsess about minutiae of plastic replicas, so there is nothing to get serious about.

Patrick Hagelstein Sorry! Was not my intention to start a trolling conversation... I just wanted to know any issues with the kit.... :-\
Soeren . Yeah I hope that AMK did some magic there and we will see a nice release in the end.

Daniel I have high hopes they do, for the Kfir they redesigned the whole fuselage after criticism on their first release. Even if not, I have a really hard time spotting any gamebreaking mistakes there and I will definitely get one and build "Bullet 106"
