So it turns out our initial hunch yesterday was correct, JSI will be producing 1/18 Flight Deck Crew and 1/18 Flight Deck Vehicles! According to Tales Of The Cat, Merit International announced their plans this weekend at iHobby EXPO:
Distributor Merit Intl announced at the Ihobby show in Chicago that they are collaborating with JSI to build flight deck accessories for the 1:18 F-14 Tomcat. No dates or prices are available but these pieces will no doubt be appreciated by collectors of this scale. Interesting stuff!!
Flight deck crew and vehicles but no pilots? Not necessarily! JSI had informed us that they were working on new pilots and figures, as we reported here. In addition, Bad Cat Rob posted news that 1/18 F-14A Tomcat fans will surely be excited about:
My sources tell me pilots for the F-14 are in development and should be here Q1.
So for those of you buying the JSI 1/18 F-14A Tomcat VF-84 Jolly Rogers, those cockpits won’t be empty for too much longer! Click on the title bar to see more images of the 1/18 Flight Deck Crew and Vehicles!
