Default Century Wings F-14 JR Armaments

New hobbyist here. This is my second diecast and my first one is a Hobby Master F/A-18 Super Hornet. The HM is great but I am a bit frustrated with the CW. None of the phoenix missiles would attach. The arrestor hook needs to be glued as well. One of the afternburner clip is broken. It's really frustrating because the HM was perfect and I thought the CW should be better. It says use white glue. What type of glue is that? When I searched Google it gives me Elmer's glue. Actually no missiles would attach easily. Either too loose or too tight.

On the other hand... The plane looks beautiful. The paint and details are astonishing.

Thanks. I will look around but most likely we do not have it here. Is it normal for CW models to be like this? I want to get more CWs but this one is a bit traumatic. lol

sorry to hear about yr problem....

My view: i buy a diecast model because it's more sturdy that plastic. also stuffs are not supposed to be glued. o/w i would have just bought a plastic model for a lot cheaper?

so i think it sucks that CW couldn't do a better job. thanks for the warning.
