    F-14B VF-103 "Jolly Rogers" 1/32 Trumpeter

    And thank you all for all these kind words, they're some kind of a reward after such a long build. Much appreciated. I'm preparing a paper article on this, atfer it's been released, I'll add some more pictures and close ups, i promise. I also need to find a decent and stiff enough base, both for photographing ( outside too when it stop raining ) and moving the beast around...it's rather complicated to handle ! Best regards

    Kevin, you've done great with this. I'm so happy to see it still growing. I hope to hear better news from Paul, family and dogs soon. He'll need a hell lot of energy, i hope that not only the money, but also all the LSP community being worried for him will help to get through that.

    F-14B UPGRADE 1/32 Tomcat

    hello too much time since last update ! I,ve since erased and repainted the tail Skulls and they are now in the correct position and size. At last, these were turning me crazy. Ordnance is now ready and set on the airframe, i'm now working on the canopy framing and cockpit contour. And Best Thoughts and wishes to Paul Fisher. Fanch

    F-14B UPGRADE 1/32 Tomcat

    Hello and thank you very much for these kind comments. Chipping is done by dabbing some dark greypaint with a pad made of foam, exactly the same foam that i used to texture my tyre tread, Scratches are done with a brass brush pencil, sourced here: http://www.greenstuffworld.com/fr/outils-de-travail/690-stylo-gratte-brosse-scratch-brush-pens.html

    landing gear assembled and set onto the fuselage, a quicky dry fit with wings to cheks that everything is level ! ( i picked a grey background to have a better rendition of tyres aspect !) sorry for the pic quality, my phone camera doesnt ike my photo booth light bulbs, but you've got the idea of the attitude with the shortened main landing gear. ( i had to adjust the front wheels spacing too, as they were to far from the center line ) thank you for all your kind words ! Fanch

    F-14B UPGRADE 1/32 Tomcat

    thank you very much for your kind comments here's now some painting. legs have been weathered with some grey/green grime near wheels and brakes, more sand/cream hue on top of them. I did my best to force myself into taking as much part of the scale as possible on wheels to and tried to give some texture on tyre treads by building up a rough surface with acryl dabbed with a sponge foam. Tyre sides have been brushed with an iron pencil/brush to try and repilcate the fabric shine that can be seen on pics. I set a ssatin to gloss shine in the grooves to replicate the wax that often keep shiny there. My Daco book showed so brownish grime on tyres so it's the shade i chose ( but many other colors could have been picked, though)
