Academy F-14D Super Tomcat VF-2 Bounty Hunters (2003)


Recommended Posts

to all Tomcat fans, here is my take on the F-14D in 1:72, it's a great kit of an epic fighter aircraft. Decals came from Hasegawa, cockpit from Aires, avionics bays from Black Dog:

That was fun! Now, where is this Hasegawa kit whose decals I robbed, might as well build it in the toned down version!

Incredible build, I really like it and there is a lot of work that went into it, thank you for sharing.

WoW! thanks for all the nice comments. As a matter of fact I have started to build the Hasegawa model (whose decals I took for this bird) in the toned down version of the same squadron. It is immediately clear that the molds of Hasegawa have quite worn out over the years, so this will be a quicker build and I will try to make that one much more worn too. So follow up on this in hopefully a few weeks!

Great job, she looks wonderful. VF-2 was always my favourite Tomcat scheme, especially this later version.   👍

 

Cheers,

Oh wow!

That is just incredible!

Your cockpit and avionics details are astounding - not to mention the overall finish, which is totally realistic.

Your work is inspiring, yet kind-of intimidating at the same time!

Beautifully done.

That is one of the best F-14D l have seen, the finish has been done lovely and to scale.

Exceptional work, I would not have thought twice if you had said it was 1/48. A lot of details, all very well finished. Lovely.
