Hi Guys,



F-14 has to be one of my favorite aircraft, I have built couple of it but I know it wasn't that good so why not give another shot, so Baby One More Time. The kit, I use was the the Fujimi, I have to say it is truly a masterpiece for it has been released sometime ago. I really enjoyed building it. The kit doesn't have any flaws at all fitting went just smooth. If I have to rate this kit I did give 9/10 one mark less cause it is bit hard to get, tho you can get it but seem to be out of stock all the time. No surprise on that.
Painting well it is just trial and errors I use 2-3 types of paint and hope it is closed to the real bird. I choose to built as Jolly Roger, cause I always like the Skull and the Bones markings.

I am still in my learning curve in scale model, hope I have a decent job on this model. All feedback are welcome.

Cheers



















 
Which 1/72nd Tomcat kit do you think is the best Tom?
There are two new tooled F-14 in 72 scale, Fine molds, and GWH they are bit pricey but nice kits, however to me Hasegawa late 80s tooled f-14 in 72 scales has to be number one, tho it has aged but for price and details hands down it is the best, fujimi come close second, and fujimi comes with ordinances a BIG plus point only few dollars more than Hasegawa but way cheaper than Fine molds and GWH, if you buy then I did say either Hasegawa or Fujimi.
