I'd say that's a severe understatement.  Absolutely gorgeous work, my wallet will scream.

Hi Ifor,

Actually not bad because we own the factory. No other overheads.
The final prices are down to your shops after the distributors have brought them in for you.

Some shops doing discounts for pre orders now. Where are you?

The fine folks at AMK are set to release a 1/72 IAI Kfir C2/C7!  :icon_beer: I'm gonna need a dozen! More info and pics on their Facebook site: LINK!



Hmmm, first a scale-down of their L-29 Delfin, followed by a scale-down of their IAI Kfir,.... could that mean we'll eventually see a scale-down of their superb Foxhound?

Oh, and seeing that it hasn't been posted here yet: the 1/48 crowd will get another new F-14 Tomcat. LINK!
Going by what you hear about their Foxhound, AMK might actually give Tamiya a run for their money (yeah, I know, different Tomcat versions, but still...).

Cheers,
Moritz

Ooooh, boxart, that means the kit might be out by Xmas.  ;D ;D

This has been a long, drawn-out kit production saga/soap-opera.  ;D
