weird pick from tamiya i'll be honest
the market have no less than three F-4Bs right now -
hasegawa old yet decent phantoms, academy excellent and very affordable phantoms and ZM with their insanely detailed (and priced) phantoms
so im not sure where tamiya going to fall in here, and how they expect to top the other competition

Öhm ... Did you build Tamiya's F-14s in 48nd scale? This is a dream!

It will be a clear winner for all modelers who apreciate an easy aproach on building without having to worry much about sanding and filing for sure. Also bear in mind that tamiya can compete and deliver the global market. They know exactly what they are doing. Same thing with their F-14s and BF109s (which was an awesome flawless build) in the same scale - you just have have got to keep beeing competitive.

Seeing how there isn't any trace of seamlines I guess it is Tamicat quality. So it will be a no brainer to get one of those.

Well none of the three F-4Bs will do any money for Tamiya right?
Hasegawa kits are really hard to get / Academy is ok, but probably will lose against the Tamiya kit and ZM has NO! F-4B.

So its a great choice from Tamiya, because Phantoms will always be a good seller.

this is big T. Big T doesn't care about the market, it will release whatever it will release and steamroll over anything with great ease, case in point the 48 scale tomcats.

and tbh they will probably milk this puppy iaw the letters of the phantom alphabet from b all the way to j and beyond quite easily and gracefully knowing their level of engineering i am damn sure they will take a modular approach to kit enabling them to produce multiple variants without the causing slightest grief to the modeller. 🙂 that being said, why they didn't do this to f-16 variants, i really wonder.

now what i am awaiting is if and when tamiya will scale their tomcat and this phantom to 32nd. eventho they are available in 32nd scale already, due to their age they leave much to be desired compared to their recent subjects.... now that'll be the day.

A new F-14 from Tamiya would be awesome.
The Phantoms are not that necessary, their 32th kits are still awesomew

i do confess i havn't built their tomcat (yet!), im just sharing my thoughts about it

Tamiya's F-4B is a product and Tamiya as a company reflects its development and production cost to the price. It would be well designed and you won't be disappointed. Tamiya is producing this for profit. There is Academy's F-4B, Hasegawa's F-4B is hard to find and it is not new. Tamiya's distribution line is well established, you can find their models in every country. If you have the desire to build F-4B Phantom, you would find it for a price. Probably we would see F-4D in 2-3 years and after in 5 years, F-4E/J would be in the market. As you know F-4J was flown with JSDF. Maybe, update set for F-4E late model after the release of F-4E early model.

Looks like I bought my 1:32 Mirage 2000D/N in time then. I had mixed feeling about the brand myself. Who knows maybe they'll just change their name or something.

Good thing I bought all of those Kitty Hawk kits then. Though I never did get the RF-101C that I wanted.
22. June, 21:40

I also bought the MH-60L and another AH-6M Kit yesterday before everything will be sold out or you have to pay astronomous prices on the big bay or somewhere else second handed.

I was disappointed with the UH-1D in 1:35 , but I did order the Voodoo in 1:48, so the Voodoo should be on a container ship or something on its way. I also have the Jaguar in 1:48, which has some twisted plastic, and the replacement part, also had a twist in it.

Maybe somebody at Kitty Hawk died?
23. June, 10:44
Clifford Keesler
I heated my Jaguar part in hot water and twisted it back into shape and held it there untill it cooled.

Oops, I meant to write 1:48 scale for that UH-1D, not 1:35. :|
