The instructions only shown two UHF antennas to be added, yet they are of the same size. It is clearly the TACAN/UHF antenna should be taller. So i borrowed one from my Tamiya F-14D Super Tomcat kit. Tamiya has two of it, yet I have to used only one

Now all things are on except for load outs. It reminds me of the good old days with Hasegawa Tomcat kits when you can choose to extend the slats and flaps. And this is the very reason that I chose AMK F-14D over its Tamiya counterpart. Perfect fitting is important, but it is not everything

It is time to move onto the external stores: the LANTIRN and TARPS pods are first to build

 

here are some step by step painting pics

 

1) Cover the camera windows with masking tape, then cut along the edge of windows to reveal the glasses

2) AMK did not provide any interior details to its TARPS pod, so I just painted the window with dark gray (followed by a layer of clear coat)

3) slightly weather the pods

4) put on the decals, the decals should work well with Mr. Marker Setter.

I took the model to the balcony, under the sun. Jesus... it is really a hot summer day that I sweat a lot

The lens i am using does not have focal length range, i would like to change my little Canon EOS 850D (18-55mm) to the Sony A7R3 (24-240mm) that I used for previous posts

Painting the bombs: the GBU-16 Paveway II was extensively used during Operation Enduring Freedom. A full load of GBU-16s was chosen for my work, as a quad bomber at that time

 

Here are some painting process pictures:
