  1. Greetings everyone! I have been around the site for quite some time following posts and WIPs so I thought it was about time for my first large project. The following WIP will be my first in the 32nd scale and the first one in Large Scale Planes! As the title shows I will be trying my luck on an F-14B, based on the Tamiya 1:32 kit. Initially I was thinking of representing aircraft 105 from VF-41 with full low visibility colors however I changed my mind during the summer after seeing some wonderful shots of an F-14B 1:32 scale with the VF-102 Diamondbacks decals form Figh
  2. When the test shots cam out a few years back some drooled others were rivet critical and a few thought that this would be the ultimate Tomcat kit. There is no denying that as a package this model kit impresses before you open the box. A box which is so robust and protective that they even provide a carry handle built in so you can transport it like a piece of luggage. I've built several Tamiya and Revell big cats over the years and both of these had their good and bad points so I was eager to see what Trumpeter had come up with. The first thing to hit you is the packaging inside, e
  3. No, not a new song title, but trying to determine what shade of blue was used on the VF-143 F-14As in the light gull gray over white era. I have the Furball Decals, and they specify Insignia Blue for the tops of the tailfins (that must be painted), but that will not match the blue trim of the tailfins and the three stripes on the forward fuselage. Looking at photos on the web, the blue is definitely lighter than the dark blue of the insignia. The hue varies with the photos too - in one photo it definitely has a hint of red in it which I can find no FS match for. In others it looks less ric
  4. Hi guys, Trumpeters 1/32 Phoenix pallets aren’t quite accurate, so I understand. Are Tamiya’s parts accurate? I am thinking of using those, or (trying to) make castings of them. My own kit is ah... somewhat buried under the rest of the stash at the moment. So instead of bulldozing my way through my personal plastic AMARC, I opt for the easy way out and ask you guys! Thanks for sharing your knowledge! Cheers, Erik B.
  5. Hi! If you ever wondered how to arm your Iranian Air Force F-14 and you have run out of AIM-54s. Wonder no more! Do as the Iranians did and hang one or two Raytheon HAWKS under it =) As it happens I can provide you with those Hawks! They are available from my Shapeways shop (in 1/48 scale as well, but who cares, right?) https://www.shapeways.com/product/QZHTAHBND/hawk-mim-23b-missile-in-1-32?optionId=61879572 For those wanting to take a closer look on images of the 3D model they can be found here: http://imgur.com/a/iiyFv And if you want to read more about the
  6. Dear all, after my tamiya mossie, i thinked it was time for other stuff and after a jet in the form of a Mig-21, i was inspired by Tom Cooper and Farzad Bishop book "Iranian F-14 Tomcat Units in Combat" to make another jet in the form of an iranian Tomcat, probably, after the F-86, the most successful Jetfighter. Unfortunately the only 1/32 solution of the Tomcat was the Tamiya kit from the early seventys, but after all the kit was not bad at all for his forty years. Below some photos I take this afternoon with the help of central europe springtime sun, will try to do some better photos
  7. Hello one and all, If I may, I'd like to share a little progress on my current project. I recognise a number of names from other forums so to you guys, apologies for posting this stuff since I guess you've seen it before. For those members who like to stay within the comfortable walls of LSP, I hope there are one or two things that you might find interesting along the way. Typically, my builds are long drawn out affairs so I hope you have some stamina and a fair amount of patience. I like to try to squeeze every last ounce of value out of these big kits so I often spend some time tweeking bi
  8. Hi, I postponed for a long time an order of Phoenix decals and finally decided to have a go. As they are very rarely mentioned on LSP, I thought you would be interested in having a feedback. I ordered them via Hobbyeasy and got them in less than two weeks as the letter went under the customs radar. First important thing: if you know Tiger Wings, you will not be surprised as they are the producer hidden behind this more recent name! To decrease the P&P and because the cost was quite reasonable, I ordered six decal sets from Taiwan: The three USMC AV-8B/B+ sets, the AVG P-40 set,
  9. Greetings all. Didn't really want to start a thread for this, but my searching has come up nuts. Wondering if there is a decal set out there for the Tomcats of the aforementioned squadron. I have found stuff for the Phantoms they flew, and for the 1/48 Tomcats of said squadron, but not 1/32 Tomcats. Thanks in advance. Cheers, Dave
  10. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JbyNc3GxMN4 Set to the music , "My name is Lincoln" from the film The Island. That f-14/18 flyby gives me goosebumps everytime!
  11. Now available! http://www.zactomodels.com/ Lately I've been busy working on a wrong scale project (http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?showtopic=268873) and haven't had time to make any new patterns. I did take the time to adapt my Tomcat fuel tank pylons (from my Trump intake set) to fit the Tamiya kit. You will need to drill locator holes and remove the existing locator pins on the intake parts. Tamiya got these in the wrong location. Cheers, Chris
  12. I'm aware of at least three pit sets for the big Tamiya Tomcat; Aires, Avionix and Teknics. Which is considered to be the most accurate, anyone know? Thanks fellas,
