  1. Crikey! I’ll bet that thing flew like a dumptruck. Nice job.
  2. No nothing special. Just kept them protected and buffed with a soft cloth. Yes Tarps pod. Loadout as per the kit instructions.
  3. Thanks all for the kind words. Rodney I was stressing about that area, after my final flat coat I used the AK weathering pencils. I inserted the wing into the socket, held the pencil in place and moved the wing to mark the arcs. Do this in a few places - remove the wing again and use the marked arcs as a guide for weathering sets ( or your chosen method) blended with q tips. Hope that helps
  4. Thanks guys I appreciate the great comments.
  5. Hi All This is my latest completion. 1/48 Tamiya F-14D Tomcat as "Bullet 103" from VF-2 in OIF 2003. What hasn't already been said about this kit isn't worth saying. A real joy to build. The model is mostly box stock but I did add the following: Master Models turned brass nose probe Wheeliant resin wheels Fightertown Decals 48086 Tomcats at war Pt 3. Fightertown Decals 48087 Tomcat data and weapons decals. The model is painted in MRP Lacquers FS36375 / FS36320 / FS 35237 - USN TPS scheme, and weathered with Tamiya panel line wash, Tamiya weathering sets and AK weathering pencils. Here's a few pics, I hope you like it. Thanks for looking, Have a great day & stay safe.
  6. Great build and photos. What did you use for the clear green on the centre windscreen ?
  7. Fantastic work - well done on the finishing touches.
  8. Lucky Model has them on pre-order for $35 USD + shipping. I probably need one.
  9. This is certainly looking like one to be excited about.
  10. Can’t wait to see what you can do with it.
  11. Some people see them as a cop out for not doing intakes. I very much disagree with that thought process and think they add a new skill level to the build, especially if they are hand made. The splash of colour can add a lot to bland modern jets. You can cover as much or as little as you like because at some stage the jet is partially covered/uncovered etc. Same goes for RBF streamers. Don't overthink it.
