Woohoo!!! :yahoo:

 

I just noticed this is in and has moved!

 

Updated the spreadsheet! :D

 

Don't know if it'll be an A or D model, but can confirm it'll be a Tamiya 1/48th beastie in VF-31 CAG colours........

 

........... only 18 months away but am already excited!!  :frantic:

Yes please, Hasegawa F-14A in the stash. Been contemplating it for the Vietnam GB - but I've had so many Vietnam additions to my stash lately that I rather spread them out a bit :)

Welcome to the Tomcat party Reini :) Sure @trickyrich won't mind if you swap your F-14 out for something else in Vietnam GB...

Help!

 

What colour scheme is this?   I originally thought it was a hard-edged version of the TPS scheme, but now I'm starting to wonder if it is light gull grey with dark gull grey uppersurfaces.

Looks like this one F-14 Tactical scheme.

Count me in! Can't think of a better gb to join for my first, if you'll have me. 

Finished the Tamiya -D tail end of last year, and I've just started the AMK kit. Hopefully by the time the gb rolls around, there'll be a -B offering from Tamiya (hint hint.) 

 

Can never have too many Tomcats.

Cheers Allan

well that is actually very easy....build the F-14A...as I haven't bought the F-14D yet!

 

Though I could always sell my Draken to fund the purchase of it! :tease:

At least there's a chance the poor neglected thing will get built then.

Will we ever see Schrodinger's Draken get the wavefunction collapse that it truly deserves?!?!?  :D
