Albyn Roman II I added this to my stash recently but am going to wait until I improve some of my modeling skills a bit first, only because i hear this is such an amazing kit and I want to be able to do it justice. This one will be a special build because my Great Uncle Vincent recently passed and he was one of the drafters at Grumman during the original design phase of this amazing jet! I will probably inscribe a goodbye message on the interior of the body somewhere...

Patrick Hagelstein Whow, that's something special. In that case, I can totally understand you want to do this kit, and especially him, justice. 🙂

Markus Antonius Is there any chance to build it with gears up without any problems?

Patrick Hagelstein Shouldn't be any problem. The doors are all separate and knowing Tamiya in exactly the same size as their corresponding openings.

Markus Antonius ok, but it is not intended in the instructions? thanks anyway 🙂
David Suhadolc Saw it in the window at Tamiyas factory store Tokyo. I have a completed Revell kit from 18 years ago, but seeing Tamiya's almost made me break the bank and buy it on the spot!

Roy McKay Is the boat tail fairing correct for the VF-1 plane? It's right for the other two for sure but I thought Enterprise's Tomcats had the early fairing until they went overall gull grey. Also are the early fin stiffeners correct for the Nimitz bird?

Murad ÖZER no mention of a tomcat so far from the tamiya booth:
