  1. Once again, thanks all for the feedback. This is their 2019 tooling which is really impressive to say the least. Probably the best kit out there next to the Fine Molds one. Mark
  2. Presenting my go at Academy's new-tool 1/72 F-14A Tomcat built for the "In The Navy" Group Build here on BM. Overall it was a decent build with good detail. Aftermarket used were Fine Molds plastic seatbelts and decals from a re-boxing of their old-tool Tomcat. She is built as Fast Eagle 107 of VF-41 "Black Aces" just after the infamous 1981 Gulf of Sidra incident in which this jet and another VF-41 Tomcat, Fast Eagle 102, shot down a pair of Libyan Su-22 Fitter attack aircraft.

  4. Thanks all. I'm officially calling this done. Photos in the Gallery soon. Yup. https://ak-interactive.com/product-category/ak-weathering-pencils/ Mark
  5. Weathering begins on the main airframe. Mark
  6. Used AK Interactive weathering pencils to add dirt and grime on the external tanks. Mark
  7. Time for a wash. I’m using AK Interactive’ enamel wash in Neutral Grey. In this next photo, you can see the effect of the wash which I applied to the left side of the upper fuselage compared to the “naked” right side. Mark
  8. Thanks. These were the stock seats with Fine Molds plastic seat belts added. https://1999.co.jp/eng/10311649 Mark
  9. Did the seats today. 1/72 is really too small for me! Can’t wait to hop back to 1/48 after this. Mark
  10. Finished the decals in a marathon session yesterday. Cartograf decals were easy to work with as usual. Mark
  11. Getting the camouflage on. Used Mr Color 315 Light Gull Grey FS36440. Mark
  12. Count me in for this one please! Always love a good Tomcat build. You might want to try the new Academy kit. Nicely detailed and fits really well. Parts included allow you to build any Tomcat sans those with the early beaver tail. Just add a set of aftermarket NACES seats and you can build a D. Quite the bang for your buck. Mark
  13. I’d be down for this. Have a couple of them in the stash. Mark
