Your F-14 is a real beauty!

Like Daz, I find that VF-1 has the best decoration of all F-14 units... followed by VF-84.

So I am everything but impartial!

Are these the box decals?

Great show!

@Daz: agree, I had the same with the old Tempest kit. But some newer kits have Cartograf-decals, especially when marked as "special edition".

Thanks Alex,ive heard the newer kits have cartograf decals also..thing is,as a novice,how would I know this when purchasing without checking the contents..I can't do that obviously.

Hi Daz. You can actually see if a certain kit has Cartograf decals. It's marked in the box. They are putting the logo of Cartograf. They are great quality, one of the best that I have worked with.

Thank you Sean. The kit is great, I definitely recommend it. Good overall fit, no flashing, good quality of the plastic, easy to understand instructions, etc.

Nice Tomcat! Always good to see another 'cat gracing the pages, well done with what can be a tough kit.
