Build 2 - Revell 1/144 F-14A Tomcat VF142 Ghostriders - CVW-6 USS America 1976 **COMPLETE**


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

Because I enjoyed building my first F-14A Tomcat in 1/144 scale by Revell, I have purchased another one to build in the scheme of Aircraft 212 of the VF142 Ghostriders based aboard USS America in 1976 as part of CVW 6.

Here is what the aircraft could look like when finished.

Here are the sprue shots (as the kit is the same, I have used the shots from the previous build).

Anyway I will get some more photos as soon as I have done some of the paint work on this kit.

Really happy with the way this is going. Got some painting to do on the underside and touch ups on areas of the fuselage, but am going to do that once all the gluing up is done.

Thanks as always for looking.

Having seen MY very first TOMCAT at San Diego when dinosaurs roamed the planet, I have a strong love of these aircrafts. :heart:

Thanks Houston,

I have completed the painting of all of the components.

I will be starting the final assembly of the kit tomorrow.

Aside from the Sparrow/Sidewinder pylons this kit is fully assembled and ready for decals.

I won't be posting anymore photos in this thread as it is so close to being finished.

I will be doing the decals in a short while.
