Hi all and am taking the plunge with this one: Hasegawa_F-14_Tomcat_1_72 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Will be OOB build with decals by Hi-Decal for the blue splinter scheme used at the Naval Strike and Air Warfare Center in the late Nineties. I've never built this Hasegawa kit so here's hoping it goes ok. Any advice always appreciated! A few references to feed the habit... Tomcat references by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Thanks for stopping by and looking forward to following your builds! Happy modelling, Dermot
This is the Revell F-14D Super Tomcat 1/72 kit. I've been waiting to do an F-14 since I got back into modelling a few years ago. The last one I built was the Airfix one in the late 1970's, I remember it was white plastic and was one of the first models I actually painted with the intentions of it being a model for displaying rather than a toy. This kit had a lot to live up to as it was competing with fond childhood memories of a kit that by todays standards, would probably not be nearly as good as I remember it being. Revell have nothing to worry about as far as the build goes. It went together very nicely, and although I'm not an F-14 expert, it was accurate enough for my liking. It was completed straight from the box using the kit decals and painted with Vallejo Model Air paints (which I'm now used to after the switch from Humbrol enamels and love). I managed to get some outside photo's the other day, hope you enjoy.
