I decided to build my favourite aircraft F-14D in scale 1/32, first model after 12 years. Back then I was building only 1/72 stuff.

- AVIONIX GBU-16 1000lb US Navy / Marines Resin Bombs x4 1/32

- AVIONIX GBU-12 500lb US Navy / Marines Resin Bombs x4 1/32

- EDUARD F-14 Placards S.A.

- EDUARD Remove Before Flight 1/32

- EDUARD F-14D Exterior 1/32

- EDUARD F-14D Undercarriage 1/32

- EDUARD F-14D Armament 1/32

- WOLFPACK F-14 Bombcat update set 1/32

- ZACTOMODELS F-14 Intake correction set 1/32 (added 12/11/2014)

- ZACTOMODELS Sidewinder missiles 1/32 (added 12/11/2014)

PS: Sorry for my english. :)/>/>

At first I wanted to build a cockpit. Then I noticed F-14D resin cockpit set on AIRES web page. It is new, came out last week. I will get it probably next week, but that does not matter, becasue I started to work on undercarriage.

Here are the results of my work so far:

Some extra details on the front undercarriage:


Added some cables/hydraulic pipes:




Edited: I have updated aftermarket items.

can you paint enamel paint on top of that tape?

Honestly, I don't know. I never painted the tape. I will paint it with lacquer Mr. Color. I do not expect any problems...I will post here my experience with that.
