1/32 trumpeter F-14D

Recommended Posts

After some years of small projects, and no inspiration, i found it back.

 

Last week i started with my 4the F-14 in 1/32.  Basicly, it will have most of the available extra's.

-eduard F-14d exteriour set

- eduard F-14d undercarriage

- eduard F-14 set for tamiya

- Aires cockpit set

- Aires wheel bays

- Aires exhaust

- Zactoman intakes

- Ben schumacher's ECS vents

 

I try to keep this thread going and put as much pics on, if i'm not going to fast.

 

At this moment the cockpit is done.

I started working at the Wings

All the wrong rivets on the forward fuselage are removed/filled.

At the rear, i filled the wrong rivets, added the actuator cooling vents, andraised the area a little bit with MrSurfacer

I have pretty much the same bag of resin in the stash for a similar build, I'll enjoy watching this! 

Do you have any after market decals in mind?

Well, i think Vandy one, but have 2 VF-101 sets , VF-11 set, and a vf-2 set.  At this moment i can still go for a late B model or a D, i have some 6sets for B, so, i think it would be difficult to decide now. more progress pics from the wing.20190521_000921_zpsbbogxc7r.jpg

This is looking absolutely fantastic, very nice work! 

For what's it's worth, I think the 'B', but my plans for a Tomcat are for a Jolly Rogers bird! It doesn't really matter, it's a Tomcat, best looking jets built!

Great work so far on everything, looks really good. You need to add the Programmable Tactical Information Display (PTID) control stick to the RIO's left side console.

Yup, i know, but i wait till all the rest is done, cause of i want to put foam in the cockpit for protection there is a chance it gets snagged and lost.
