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...

I wrote a lot with Sio - the AMK CEO - and he said that they get a lot of positive feedback for the kit.
And you will always hace folks who will find something which isn't perfect and say the kit is bad etc...

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

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

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.
