1/48 Tamiya F-14D

Recommended Posts

My LHS was having a 25% off sale, so I picked one up.  I hadn't really planned on getting one, but at that price I couldn't resist

Stopped at my LHS yesterday and I was surprised to see that they had several in stock. I was even more surprised to see the $124.00 price tag attached to it as well. I feel kinda crummy because I know for a fact that I won't buy it from them at that price.

I got the kit yesterday and its quality is awesome. Looking forward to start building it soon.

Lucky Model has $2 surface shipping over $120 again for the week. Buy 2 Tamiya F-14D kits and shipping is $2. Surface can take awhile but for those looking for a deal, hard to beat that.

:woot.gif: Wow, people are THAT rich in Lima! Do you own a cocoa farm or something, Manuel?

How soon are you going to start building your Tamiya kit once it's delivered to you?

Cheers,

Hello Onigiri, I´m Architect, no farms at all, no in Lima. 
And yes, I will build the F-14D from tamiya one second later that it arrives. I have a lot of modelling friends from here, with a lot of stuff to build so.

Current builds:
1/48 F-14A VF-2 Tamiya
1/48 F-117A Tamiya
1/48 Su-33 Kinetic.

Hola, Manuel!

Hope you start a build thread on the Tamiya F-14D as soon as you start with it.

I'm enjoying my Tamiya F-14D so far It's even better than their A! Any aftermarket source for closed aperture GE exhaust nozzles? The kit only has open ones and I am building this jet in cruise.

The ones that Stephen linked to are KA-Models. MK.1 Design is just another of the brands he uses.

Here's a link to the ones with the burner cans (these one's are one piece) on his website.
