  1. Fantastic work, I love the weathering, they did get very dirty over time! Yeah the italeri jag is a bit of a sod, personally I think the Hasegawa is the best, could do with a new build from Airfix
  2. Gorgeous looking tomcat love the subtle weathering, looks superb
  3. Thanks for all the comments, am really looking forward to having a bash at the new Academy one when it arrives
  4. Lovely looking Starfighter camo colours always look so wrong on a fast jet like that or the lightning but also look so damn good! You've done a great job of it and the orange looks spot on too, superb build
  5. Fantastic build, love watching the Cat at the airshows, and you've certainly done it justice
  6. Hi all, Just finished this HobbyBoss 1:72 Grumman F-14B, finished as BuNo.162919 "Devil 101" of VF-74, USS Saratoga, US Navy, circa 1992. Built OOB, and finished in the Light grey scheme using Mr Color 338. this was my first attempt at a Hobbyboss kit, and overall i quite liked it, most parts went together well, but i had issues with the canopy fit and large decals (probably me!!). Have ordered an Academy F-14 to see how they compare (have read theyre the best of the easily available ones iin the UK??!!), did the old Revell one a few years back (the darker grey one in the bottom pic!) and thought that was a very enjoyable kit. Would certainly get another HB Tomcat again though, especially for the price and range of decals included HobbyBoss 1:72 F-14B 162919 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr HobbyBoss 1-72 F-14B 162919-17 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr HobbyBoss 1:72 F-14B 162919 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr HobbyBoss 1:72 F-14B 162919 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr HobbyBoss 1:72 F-14B 162919 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr HobbyBoss 1:72 F-14B 162919 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr HobbyBoss 1:72 F-14B 162919 by Jonathan Francis, on Flickr Thanks for looking Jon

  11. Hi, Was on 12 hour nights last week, but noticed the Gulf Air retro jet, A9C-FG, was due on the afternoon arrival to LHR on Saturday.... and it was due to be sunny So had a couple hours sleep, then did a 7 hour round trip via train, tube, bus and foot for about 90mins worth of spotting!!! To me it was worth it though.......
