1/48 Tamiya Preproduction F-14

Recommended Posts

I got as far as I could before Nationals, but I've reached the end of my available time. There are still a few small things to do, but it's as good as it's going to get for now. This was my test bed for the Steel Beach conversion set. It's also going to be an FSM article. I started adding detail and couldn't stop. That's part of the reason I didn't get everything done! The orange in the pictures is a big wonky. It doesn't look like that in person. I'm not sure what happened. Anyway, it's off to the IPMS Nats in the morning!

Thought the Tamiya kit didn't have dropped flaps or slats?  Did you find a way to do that or did you use a set of Hasegawa wings?  Looks the business though.

I used the Hasegawa wings. They actually fit quite nicely.

Looks great Darren!  Your add on/up date/back date sets are making the Tamiya kit the one stop shop for anyone's Tomcat desires. Well done!
