  1. A long time between updates, partially because I went to the US for a couple of weeks . But it's finally done I've written a full build report at my blog for those interested. For those not interested here's some photos
  2. Now the F-14 is done , I'm onto the next project, a Hasegawa A-4K. I'll be doing a SEA A-4K from around the mid 1980's to replace the kit below which I trashed stripping it prior to wanting to repaint it This will be an in flight build so not much aftermarket, just the excellent Gekko Graphics decal and a seated pilot from Aerobonus. Anyone who has built this kit knows the fit isn't particularly great. This coupled with the, IMHO, far to fine panel lines means you can have a bit of fight on your hands. First step is to deal with the poor fitting intakes, basically the intake is not as wide as the kit so you end up with a step on the inside where the engine face piece mates with the middle part of the intake. The easy solution here is to cut the engine face in half. Then glue each half to the respective fuselage half. now you'll have no step and unless you've got a boroscope you can't see the centre of the engine piece once everything is together. I fitted the tubular piece, which simulates the CSD/CFG roughly in the centre of one of the cut pieces. As you can see, no sign of the split and we haven't put on the rest of the intake, which makes the gap even smaller
