  1. Check Six the nozzles seem to be closed just before launch.Hmmm... scotthldr Nic photo.I stored it because it is exactly what I was planning to do.Although I might attach the shuttle.Will see....
  2. A new question for you Tomcaters... What is the normal position of the exhaust nozzles of an F-14A during its time on the shuttle while on idle? According to what I found online they are open but I have to make sure before I glue'em. Thank you in advance!
  3. Guys sorry for the late response..... Thanks a lot for your answers!!!
  4. I took my chances and glued them in the up position thinking about the need for air. Regardles that I thank you for the answer because now I am 100% sure and I can finally sleep peacefully... :lol:
  5. Another question... When the engines are on idle would the intake ramps be in full open or in any other kind of configuration?
  6. I didn't know that.Thank you for your time to explain to me!
  7. Oh!I knew that but I thought because of it there was a different procedure. So nothing special other than it's position?
  8. Thank you all for your help! scotthldr this is exactly the photo I was looking for. Btw...Are you greek mate?
  9. I am building a Hasegawa F-14 kit and due to space limitation I want to place the wings swept.So far so good...The problem is I want to make it sitting in front of a blast deffuser and attached or ready to be attached to the shuttle but I am not sure if this was a common practice or not. Would a Tomcat deploy its wings after it was lined up or far before? Some videos and photos I checked are not really helpful. Thank you all in advance.
  10. Does anyone know if this version of the F-14A is like all the rest? I mean is it with recessed panel lines, right shaped nose etc or an older version with raised panel lines and wrong shape nose? HASEGAWA 1/48 51513 SP13 F-14A Tomcat "Black Bunny/Low Visibility" Thank you all in advance!
  11. Add on the list (look at 1st post). Testors 1/48 F-14A Tomcat Black Bunny (FUJIMI's kit rebox)
