Plastic bro
What color did you paint the base color for the body of the plane
27 February, 13:14
I have not tried that specific one, but I like MR.PAINT colors and they offer a two layer paint for the F-35:

I absolutely do not doubt about the kit's quality but do you guys think it is worth paying that much price for that?
I want to know your opinion.
6 January, 12:58
Have you built the kit?

Haha, I didn't mean to sound too aggressive 😄

On the HLJ page is stated "This item is discontinued and is not expected to come back into stock."
What might be the background for this?
3 January, 08:56
Could it be a rights issue? On the Tamiya home page nothing is mentioned.
3 January, 17:51
I asked HLJ and they answered quickly:

"Unfortunately this means that we have taken as many orders as we expect to be able to fill with the amount of product we're likely to receive. Even if we were to accept additional orders at this time, we would not be able to fill them.

There's a chance that the manufacturer may re-release the item, but at this time we unfortunately have no news regarding a reissue."

Interest seems greater than the first edition ...

wow, I find hard to believe Tamiya won't capitalize on this massive success and re-release even in different version/configuration

That thing is just ugly 😄 I actually know some who buy ALL new but skip the F-35. Every F-35.
We also had the much cheaper Meng F-35. Here in Germany the Tamiya costs €90+ and the Meng was sometimes available for less than €40. Yes, Meng isn't as good as Tamiya, but it's still a very good and modern kit.

For me, €90 is a price I'm just not willing to pay for a 48 model kit anymore. Especially since there really isn't much to an F-35.

I think Tamiya knows very well that the market for an F-35 is nowhere near as big as for an F-14 or F-4.

Thank you Tamiya for including ROKAF decals as well!!!

Hyped, but why cant it be the C ;-;

Japan, Tamiya's home market, bought the Model A and not a Model C.

Tamiya didn't release a long nose Phantom, despite Japan producing the F-4EJ locally. They released the B version even though there are already B models on the market.

I expect somebody (ie Meng) will release a C model as soon as there are quite a few NAVY squadrons operating the type. Obviously an A model will find its way on my bench somewhere around the end of the decade, when the first ones arrive in Greece.

Nice 😄

Early images show absolutely MASSIVE RAM tape. I excited for the quality of the build, disappointed by the tape. Perhaps it can be sanded back?

Oh boi, this looks great! 🤟🏼

I figure I'm going to get this regardless for the engineering alone. I'll be going for the newer single color finish instead of the early generations that make it stand out so much more.
