Figured I would show this build since I just completed the USS Defiant.  I am planning on building something in 1/32 scale in the future.  Promise.  Yet for now, enjoy and please let me know what you guys think.   On a side note... the pilot either came with the kit or was snatched from the OA-4M that is my stash, so the detail is a tad... soft.   Or I am just so blind that I can't paint details in 1/48 scale.

Here is where she stands now.  So I am going to go with NK200 decals when I get to that point.  Actually pretty happy with how the white came out, a lot of coats but that's how it goes.  So I picked up "The Scale Hornet" Guide for tips on how to build a model inflight without sticking a rod through the exhaust.  So I believe I will be putting the connection for the post between the Phoenix missiles at an angle, which should allow clearance for the wing sweep mechanism.  Enjoy.

Wings are just about done, pilots added (no comments on the RIO's legs tog et him to fit), wheel wells closed for an inflight build.  She is getting there.  for the people watching, and suggestions for where to get a good example of what the TPS scheme should be for the F-14?  It seems to vary and the instructions from Revell are somewhat vague..

Wings are about 90% weathered.  I am honestly not quire sure how I feel about the look of it.  I am horrible with weathering, but this go around is better than I've done so far.  I still have to do the swing marks against the fuselage plus some other odds and and ends on the wings, but those can be tackled after I close up the fuselage.
