Thanks to anyone in advance.

AMK is coming out with a new Tomcat,if it's as good as their Mig,it will be state of the art,also Tamiya is releasing one in the fall,so I would hang on and check out one of those new realeases.

+2 - As Anthony said above.

Check out the test build (cockpit only)on 'Hyperscale' of the new Tamiya F-14.

It all looks very promising with no fit or detail issues in evidence thus far.

I bet the AMK "Turkey" will be a real work of art. I can't wait to get my hands on that kit.

Best wishes,

Ian
