Hey all,

 

A quick post of these two lovely little models I had a lot of fun building

Trumpeter's 1/144th F-14D and Revell's 1/144th F-18D.

Trumpeter's 1/144th kits are an absolute blast to build- low part count, perfect fit, excellent level of detail for the scale, and stress free. The perfect antidote for taking a refreshing break from your other high maintanence builds.

I used the lo-vis Tomcatters scheme from the F-14D kit on the F-18D, despite the VF-31 not having the Hornet (they currently have the F/A-18E). Also for the eagle-eyes, the wing-tip rails are not accurate on the F-18 as I broke the original off.

Painted using Vallejo Model Air, and weathered with oils.

I'm doing good to assemble in that scale and you paint and weather! Wow!

Lovely stuff!

 

1/144 fighters etc. are vastly under rated as a build option.

 

You can fine detail them too:

That's some incredible detailing! Looking forward to the rest of the build!

 

Cheers,
