Recommended Posts

Yep, Amazing model.

Well built and the finish is flawless.

I just keep going back over your pics and marvel at your skill.

Great job.

Keeping this this as a reference when I get round to doing my VF-84 Tomcat.

At first I was going to say that it was an actual aircraft but photoshopped to make it look like a model! 

 

  Flipping stunning work!

Good lord, that is really quite special. The radial weathering around the swing wings is something else. You could swap out the grey background with a photographic one and I bet no-one would be able to tell it wasn't a real aircraft. Great job.

Amazing work once again Jos! Indeed the best F-14 out there! Clean and crisp build. “Rete strak” as we  say in Dutch!
 

Superb mate.

That's some beautiful scale modeling Jos!   Great work on a modern classic! :clap2: 

 

I redeemed a few Amazon gift cards that I had been hoarding and ordered this very kit; oh, to reach the standard you've set here!   :guitar:

That looks really beautiful. I'm surprised how big the Phoenix missiles are. I mean, I shouldn't be, I know they are big, heavy missiles, but I'd never really had a visual clue until I saw the perspective in your first photo.

 

I believe that the Tomcat could carry 6 of them, but couldn't land with 6 because it would be over the weight limit, so they never carried more than four because it beat dropping a couple of expensive, unused missiles in the ocean each mission. Not sure if that's actually true or just 80s style urban legend.

Jos,

 

This is an outstanding build. 

 

What colours did you use for the exhausts?

 

 

 

Thanks McG, for the exhausts I used a whole palette of different metal colors from Alclad II. I play with those colors and then I apply some shadow effects with matt black, I always use a piece of masking tape to tape this on a panel line.

 

Good luck, Jos 👍
