F-14B UPGRADE 1/32 Tomcat

Recommended Posts

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,

 

Great work as usual! Out of curiosity, what technique did you use to represent the scratching and chipped paint on the gear? Also, the texture you applied to the tires looks very convincing; if we didn't know better, we'd think they were made of rubber. I'll definitely be using that technique on my models.

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:

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.

Like I said many times on Facebook Fanch, beautifully done and nice fix on the Lantirn pod. Really looking forward to seeing the finished product.
