    My F-14 plan

    Are they 1/72?? Could only find 4 1/48's in stock

    My F-14 plan

    Thanks for that, always good to have another source! There are a lot of the older boxings listed, but all sold out!

    My F-14 plan

    I think between 3500-4500 yen, depending on boxing, or about £26-£40

    My F-14 plan

    I've three in the stash along with my refurb VF-31 job. Just adding the finishing touches to my VF-2 machine as we speak. Brand new, they are about £50-60 so not cheap! As a rule i always get them off ebay, some sellers in Hong Kong sell them for nearer £40 with postage. Very few seem to go up on the UK site so i normally get them from America. Hoping some folks on here will have some! Dave

    Hadn't planned on that one, but now that you mention it I probably will! Dave

    My F-14 plan

    Well i've got back into the F-14 bug, the one that first got me into modelling at the age of 13 and saw me complete no less than 30 1/72 F-14's. 9 years later, some of these have been binned or passed on. So, as i exclusively model 1/48 now, my plan is to build at least 30 F-14's (mainly hasegawa as the Academy one, though cheap, is inaccurate and the hobbyboss example will be used for the Iranian machines) I plan to build machines from the following squadrons: F-14A VF-1 Wolfpack x2 F-14D VF-2 Bounty Hunters (low viz) F-14B VF-11 Red Rippers F-14A VF-14 Tophatters In progress F-14A VF-21 Freelancers F-14A VF-24 Renegades F-14D VF-31 Tomcatters x3 F-14A VF-32 Swordsmen (Libyan Mig killer) F-14B VF-32 Swordsmen (low viz) F-14A VF-41 Black Aces (Libyan SU-22 killer) F-14A VF-41 Black Aces F-14B VF-74 Bedevilers F-14A VF-84 Jolly Rogers (low viz) F-14D VF-101 Grim Reapers F-14B VF-101 Grim Reapers F-14B VF-102 Diamondbacks F-14A VF-103 Sluggers F-14B VF-103 Jolly Rogers x2 (VF-84 swapped the Jolly Rogers name to VF-103 in 1996) F-14A VF-111 Sundowners F-14A VF-124 Gunfighters F-14B VF-143 Pukin Dogs F-14A VF-211 Fighting Checkmates x2 F-14D VF-213 Black Lions F-14A VX-4 Evaluators F-14A NSAWC F-14A Iranian Air Force (old 3 tone scheme) F-14A Iranian Air Force (new 2 tone scheme) RAF Tomcat F.1 'What if' In progress Completed Builds F-14B VF-102 Diamondbacks F-14D VF-2 Bounty Hunters (hi viz) F-14A VF-154 Black Knights F-14D VF-31 Tomcatters x2 F-14D VF-213 Black Lions (last cruise) F-14D VF-213 Black Lions (OEF) F-14A VF-84 Jolly Rogers F-14D VX-9 Playboy Tomcat F-14B VF-32 Swordsmen (Hi viz) RAF Tomcat FGR-1 'what if' As you can tell, i quite like F-14's!! Should keep me busy. Probably take years! Comments/suggestions/donations of kits (long shot!!), or surplus kits for sale are welcome. Cheers Dave
  8. PM sent, cheers Merv Dave
  9. Tornado GR.4, Afghanistan, 2010. Build thread: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.p...c=71339&hl= More pics in RFI thread. http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.p...c=73436&hl= Cheers Dave
  10. Cheers Merv. yes if you still have it to spare.
  11. Would anyone have 2 horizontal stabilisers from a 1/48 Italeri kit? Dave
  12. Gerard is right, i think the aircraft were armed with 2x MK.84's a piece (i think) The best kit would either be the hasegawa A boxing, or, if you want more detail and some weapons, a kinetic 'A' boxing, probably this one would be best, just modify the parts as necessary i.e no bird slicers in front of the cockpit, no litening pod etc. http://www.hannants.co.uk/product/K48002 And perhaps these iscrast parts, just to ensure accuracy. http://www.hannants.co.uk/product/ISC48010 http://www.hannants.co.uk/product/ISC48011 Hope that helps, Dave
  13. I use xtracrylix interior green. Looks spot on. Dave
  14. Medium sea grey 2 looks bang on for the new tornado paint schemes. Not sure if it would work for your camo scheme but the colour is very good. Looks a lot like barely grey so you could perhaps use it on an all grey F-4. Dave
  15. I thought the decals were aftermarket! They do look the part. Dave
  16. Very nice, looks the part. Where did the decals come from? Are the ASRAAM's in the kit? Cheers Dave
  17. 1/48 Academy Mig-29 Sudanese air force. Build thread: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.p...c=72056&hl= My two entries together: Cheers Dave
  18. if it's better than the hobbyboss one i'll take it off you!
  19. Coming along nicely Steve
  20. What kit is it off Merv?
  21. I use plasticine. Its easy to mould into the shape of a nose cone for example and is quite weighty. Dave
