F-14B UPGRADE 1/32 Tomcat

Recommended Posts

hello

It's been quite a while since my last build on LSP ! This year i've been back to modelling and here's the progress on an F-14B "late".

Cokpit is a franken-pit done with both B ( early, for Tamiya kit ) and D Aires sets. Some parts were carefully cut with etch saws to break down the pits. To summ up,

  • D tub
  • early seats
  • early front boards and covers
  • RIO: late front large screen, lower screen right side, late stick on the left console, early stick ahead of the main screen ( photos of my unpainted pit show by mistake the late stick )
  • HUD added for the pilot.

I have aires wheel wells and exhausts, and the great Zactomodels intakes which any modeller should have the opportunity to handle once. Great great craftmanship. All in all a pricey pack to gather, but I wont have many opportunities to build up an article on such a big jet !

 

Here are the pictures of the work so far:

Wow! What a great start.  :popcorn:

 

I know nothing about the Tomcat, so forgive this question: were the intakes really that dirty? I thought they stuffed a man up there regularly with a mop and bucket.
