Default Calibre wings f-14 vf-74

Just checked the calibre wings Facebook page and it turns out, they are making a vf-74 tomcat. Personally I will pass, any thoughts?

i agree it is not terribly appealing.

what i can say though is that it's gotta be better than the ultra-gloss hobbymaster VF-74 effort. while interesting as an objet d'art, it wasnt terribly realistic and arguably one of hm's worst finished tomcats.

one wonders why calibre didnt just go for this:



or more to the point i am baffled - utterly baffled - why none of the 3 major tomcat producers has yet done a NSAWC blue splinter bird which in my estimation would sell well.

Calibre tomcat is the best one on market
Very accurate, a lot of details

Big issue is customer service
And consideration to customer..... doesn’t exist at all....

No answer to emails
High shipping fees
Parts presents in first batches but not in last ones
Price stay the same, even increased....
