  1. I do not really discern any details that could be represented realistically in scale on an existing injection molded kit part or a resin after market set, so a different color variation should do the trick both for the turkey feathers and for the small metal joints that appear in the photos. I guess it is like the P&W -220/229 F-16 engine which in scale is just painted differently than the early version of the engine. Anyway these engines seem to have been fitted to very few aircraft while it was not the norm, so it should see extremely limited applicability. Logic dictates th
  2. Greetings! Some more aircraft with the different engines can be seen on the links below. If the dates on the posted photographs are correct the engines were being tested during the period 1996-2001 at least.

  3. Greetings to all! I recently stumbled across the following photograph of an F-14B Tomcat while looking for some reference for a friend's build https://www.airfighters.com/photo/186998/M/USA-Navy/Grumman-F-14B-Tomcat/163224/?fbclid=IwAR20LLhexd2eLLeqpR2ENlSjSRjZaXV0VGHjVTGV4ht0zll_mK0yH6xFRSU (Photo is by David F. Brown as can be seen on the link) The photo depicts an F-14B with BuNo 163224 in October 1997. On a first glance nothing seems out of the ordinary. However on closer inspection one can see that the F110 nozzles seem a bit different than one would expect. The
  4. Great job! Built this one a couple of years ago....Probably one of THE worst kits I've ever built. It is the only one on the scale though so you do not have much of a choice there.
  5. Truly inspiring build! She's looking great Steve! My hat's off to you sir! Andreas
  6. Steve....This is awesome work! I can't wait to see it finished!
  7. Great paint job and congrats on finishing it! I am building this one and the fit was horrendous at multiple areas. Just wanted to ask you what kind of red have you used for the nose and wing tips?
  8. Hey guys! Truth be told I really enjoyed the build. Fujimi's kit was a pleasure, Fightertown decals gave the opportunity for a favorite squadron and above all it was a Tomcat! Anytime, Baby....! :smiley-transport006:/> Thank you all for your kind comments, really appreciate them!
