F-14A Tomcat - Fast Eagle 107... the Sukhoi Killer! Tamiya 1/48.

Recommended Posts

Good evening to all!

 

I'm glad to present my last work, the F-14 A Bu.No. 160390 that killed a Sukhoi-22 during the Gulf of Sidra incident of 1981. 

Tamiya kit with Aires cockpit (the best cockpit I've ever used as quality of details, the worst as difficulty to put it inside the fuselage) and exhausts, Brassin wheels, Kokopelli ladder, and Furball decals. Finished with Gunze and Alclad paints. 

Hope you enjoy.... cheers! 👋

Was the Aires cockpit designed for that kit ?

The cockpit is based on the previous set for Hasegawa "adjusted" for Tamiya kit. It need a lot of work to fit inside the fuselage...  😉

Unbelievable. Don't know how anyone can produce a replica this good. You are the Lionel Messi of modelling.
