  1. VF-103, F-14B, 163217

    I believe only VF-31 and VF-213 had the black cockpits, as stated above. Steve

    I'm pretty sure the pits were 36231, Dark Gull Gray with, black panels, for the A's and B's. The Delta's were all black. Steve
  4. Yet another 1/48 Tamiya F-14A

    Excellent progress so far, things are starting to take shape. Nice fix for the ejection rings, maybe just a tad too big for the scale but, they look awesome. Looking forward to the next update. Steve "TOMCAT'S FOREVER, BABY!"
  5. HB 1/48 F-14A Tomcat: Update 10/6/17: Underway

    Don't short change yourself Peter, there's a ton of time and effort into what you've done so far. Everything looks really good so far as well. Remember, even the smallest step forward is still progress. Keep up the great work. Steve "TOMCAT'S FOREVER, BABY!"

  8. 1/18th F-14B Tomcat conversion

    Greetings everyone, Minor update for this week. I managed to get the TCS camera pod attached to the Tomcat's nose. Monday, I decanted some Tamiya Light Ghost Gray and sprayed the area around the TCS pod, using my airbrush. Tuesday, I mixed up some two part epoxy and glued her in place, letting the epoxy dry for around 24 hours before using some Vallejo acrylic putty to fill the gap. The gap was created because I wasn't as accurate, as I thought I was being when I first removed it, with my jewelers saw. The metal blade antenna popped off again so, I'll leave it go until the final bits get attached. This is the final step I wanted to accomplish before she goes to the paint barn. We'll see what the weekend holds and hopefully by the next update, I'll have some colors to show, fingers crossed. Thanks to everyone who is still following along, I do appreciate it. Steve

    LOVE my Optivisor. Remember, if the finished product looks good using the optivisor, it will look amazing with the naked eye. Steve

    I'm gonna go with VAW-121 because of the sash, on the fuselage, behind the cockpit. Steve Photo by ftzvika.

    Thanks very much. Thanks for the kind words kike, I'm glad some people are still following along. Since I'm taking soooo long on this project I think some people have lost interest. Steve

    Thanks John. The inscriptions were hand done using artist's pencils. I thought that would add a little interest. Steve
