  1. I was not impressed with the experience at all with Freetime on this. I don't do their Facebook and other than getting their shipping notice email and charged on the 20th, they volunteered nothing after that. They should've sent email update(s) to those that pre-ordered once they realized something was wrong. I see now on their Facebook page that the only update they posted was on the 28th, 8 days after "shipping" notices went out and cards charged. I see their post also doesn't mention "the rest of the story" of what they told me when I emailed them asking for status of my shipment, about their shipment originally went to their old location address which caused some of the delays (and then each day slipped another day, until I think they received finally last Friday), nor mention of the issues of shorted shipment and damaged boxes and not being able to fill pre-orders and now months wait for them to get more.
  2. You're lucky then. Unfortunately not mine. Freetime said they were shorted kits and many they did get were damaged boxes. This was a week after originally saying they shipped (but didn't) and after already charged me for kit Then they said the real status and offered $25 store credit to recieve a damaged box. Sight unseen and only credit, was a pass for me and they're supposed to refund the charge on the 20th. So no kit for me. Had I known this ordeal back on the 20th, I would've cancelled then and go to squadron.
  3. For those of you in similar situation that pre-ordered from Freetime and received shipping info on the 20th, I emailed them Monday since there was still no shipping progress since "shipped" on the 20th - and I was also charged at that time too (and the kit no longer appeared at all on their site). I heard back yesterday that they were sent to their old address so are being rerouted, and now they expect to have them in today (Wed) and also ship out today too.
  4. What "FMV" stand for? I second what Pete says for the Harrier, except for the more reasonable 1/32 kit. Would love to see some resin upgrades for it. As I recall you've already documented the misshapen bits and pylons in those kits. Similar to the A-7, I dumped the Harrier kit for these reasons but would in a minute pick the AV-8 up again if there were fixes available.
  5. That blows. Guess that explains why the tracking number Freetime sent me when they said "shipped" actually shows no progress other label created.
  6. Ah. You said on Monday you got it from Freetime so I was getting impatient. Well I guess there's an example against anti-squadron gripes since you got yours from them super fast and even cheapest to date.
  7. Wth.You already got yours from freetime?? I preordered before you and mine is still waiting for them to hand it off to UPS. I need mine now so I can put in the endless stash.
  8. There are some panels that should be there but for some reason Tamiya molded the panels as raised when they should be flush. For example:
  9. Don't know if they take suggestions but maybe ResKit could look into offering these tubes and also the F-8 Y-racks too? They seem to be relatively new and prolific company covering wide range of subjects including 1/32. Or maybe AMS? I don't see Eduard ever releasing either and I don't think Paul Fisher has relaunched, not sure who else would even consider these relatively esoteric parts.
  10. May depend on how far you go into checkout. It showed their local tax added when I put it in the cart to preorder, but after I logged in and selected my shipping address during the checkout process the tax charge went away. I couldn't resist at $420 and went for it. Now I imagine hundreds more will be spent in aftermarket....
  11. Ya the rockets have weird concave sections and strange rings around them: Real deal with ATAP warheads and proximity fuses and point detonating fuses. Unfortunate that Eduard only provided the one option, the different combinations really change the look of the rockets.
  12. Yes the zuni rockets themselves are the same whether they're in the LAU-33 or LAU-10. Fuzes/warheads could vary on the rockets regardless of what launcher they're loaded in.
  13. I'm same as the what some others have said. I'm going with WW2 option for mine and have your sheets for those already instead, so postwar reserves would be an easy pass for me.
  14. Yes the Trumpeter F-8 kits have two of them (sprue H) and with rocket parts (that look crap). To my knowledge, the Trumpeter F-8 kits are the only option for the LAU-33 in 1/32 unfortunately. Really wish an aftermarket company would make some. Black Ponies need them too....
