Pleasant surprise or senility setting in?
Posted by DiscoStu on Tuesday, October 8, 2019 8:34 PM

Got a pleasant surprise this morning in the mail.  I completely forgot about the preorder I put in seemingly a lifetime ago.  About gave up hope ever receiving this kit.  Had to get my hands on it to believe it actually exists

That kit had an incredibly long gestation period.  Hopefully the wait will have been worth it!

I had a package show up yesterday, a whole 4 months after I ordered it.  Of course that is nowhere near how long you have waited for your Tomcat.

I have been watching that kit develop since Tamiya beat them to the punch how many years ago, wondering if they would ever roll it out.

I hear ya!  I’ve purchased, received and built the Tamiya F-14 in the time since I pre-ordered the AMK Kit.  To say AMK drug their feet would be an understatement.
