  1. Kit manufacture: New Tool Tamiya Scale: 1/48 Type: F-14A Extras used: Eduard seatbelts, RBF tags, Master pitots. Furball Decals and walkways Paints and colours used: All MRP, apart from detail Well, its been a few months and i've finally decided to haul all the photography equipment out to photograph some recent builds. Here is the new tool tamiya F-14, and i can only echo how absolutely sublime the kit is. OutstandingI used this as a canvas to play with MRP paints as i really wanted to achieve that worn line jet look without going OTT. They performed flawlessly, and hold no real vices. Needless to say, since this build, the MRP collection has grown rather exponentially! Decals are from Furball, as are the stiffening plates for the fins. I also tried a new technique to me to achieve the scuffs under the wing sweep collars. I carved off some pencil lead into fine shards, and trapped them between the wing and wing collars. Carefully swing the wings too and fro, and you will be left with an accurate curve appropriate to the geometry of the sweep. I think it works rather well Finally, another first try was to buy some headlight tinting film from eBay. this is a very thin self adhesive film that some like to adhere to their cars to pimp them up. I found that its works great to tint the forward canopy visor. Optically clear, its much more uniform than applying a clear paint. A thoroughly enjoyable project I hope you like and can take some inspiration!F-14 4 by Chris Fleet, on FlickrF-14 1 by Chris Fleet, on FlickrF-14 5 by Chris Fleet, on FlickrF-14 2 by Chris Fleet, on FlickrF-14 12 by Chris Fleet, on FlickrF-14 3 by Chris Fleet, on FlickrF-14 6 by Chris Fleet, on FlickrF-14 11 by Chris Fleet, on FlickrF-14 7 by Chris Fleet, on FlickrF-14 8 by Chris Fleet, on FlickrF-14 9 by Chris Fleet, on FlickrF-14 10 by Chris Fleet, on Flickr
