Treehugger Re. photo 3. what is the correct placement of the fuel tanks? I would like to know. :)

On my Academy 1:48 kit for the F-14A, the two holes are off center, more inwards. Probably wrong but I haven't yet figured out what is correct. My kit seem to have this set of panel lines like you have, and your holes are centered on those panel lines, but those are wrong you say?
13. May, 05:20
Pierre Well I figure the correct alignment for the pylons is somewhere outboard near those pairs of plugged holes along with the two caps visible behind them. That's where Academy placed them on their new mold 1/72 tomcat.
More importantly than the pylon position, what I consider to be visually right is for the outer side of the tank to be aligned flush with the outer side of the intake pontoon. But that's only a personal guess based on observation :). So if you move the pylon, you have to make sure the pylon angle remains right and the tank doesn't stick out.
The position of those tanks is somewhat of a trick question in itself because they look different in each picture, and they possibly sway while in flight.
Hope this helps :)
13. May, 08:16
Treehugger I think I saw in a photo, clearly that the fuel tank is horizontal with the ground, but I will have to check it again. I guess I was wrong about thinking the fuel tanks are centered.
15. May, 19:07
Cuajete Following.
15. May, 19:20
Treehugger Actually, I looked at another photo now and now it looks the tanks are aligned with the tilted inake shapes, heh I have to investigate that issue onwards.
16. May, 08:49
Pierre These show what I tried to explain regarding the pylon being offset to the exterior: F-14 Intake Correction Set (Zactomodels Z32049, 1:32) and the tank being aligned with the outer wall of the intake anft.net/f-14/f14-detail-airintake-07.htm
Regarding the stance from a side perspective, the tanks are probably aligned with the intake indeed, so facing slightly upwards [img1].

Daniel Klink following! ah and i see the good old A-470 still in use by someone..
8. May, 17:50
Pierre Heh yeah, it is much hated for understandable reasons but it works! Well, most of the time anyway.
I just wish it were possible to buy spare parts. Also, what people say about quality declining is true, it's probably not a good buy right now.
8. May, 17:56
Daniel Klink Sure also got one of the last A4709 chrome... but you are right..the inner parts are quite vulnerable and the overall quality is not like in earlier days.
But the 4709 set in the wooden Box was a good offer 10 years ago
8. May, 17:58
Pierre Yeah, I luckily scored mine off ebay a couple years ago. As a matter of fact I broke it right after the beginning of lockdown, and Testors was nice enough to hook me up with a newer one and the quality difference is crazy.
The new one was probably a serviced one which didn't work because a different part was damaged, so in the end I had to rebuild it using parts from both guns. Would have been much simpler with a spare parts service.

Pierre Thansk to all of you! This scheme is quickly proving to be as time consuming as I feared it would be :)

@Patrick Hagelstein: those Crossdelta plates look really great besides the thickness which is showing a lot on the ram panel around the nose, and will work fine on any paintjob that doesn't require masking over them. Vinyl is probably a better solution for the curvy ones.
@Jos Jansen: this is Mr Surfacer 1500, it's just that super polished PE that seems to be non-cooperative unless extreme care is taken.
12. October 2019, 23:39
Bryn Crandell Looking good so far. Looking at the Gray and trying to tell if it's too light or not. To me it looks about right. Granted your lighting will have an effect on it. Looking at the full scale photo, the gray isn't that dark. Go with what looks right.
16. October 2019, 18:22
Patrick Hagelstein My two cents.... Looking at the cover picture, there's more contrast between the white and the grey. If asked specifically, I would go for a darker grey. Might not be the answer one likes but learning from you, it sometimes pays off to go for the more difficult approach to yield the best results. ;)
16. October 2019, 19:08
Sergej I I checked the AKI RC248 paint which is FS36251 ... it's darker... it actually matches the one on the photo.
16. October 2019, 19:27
Maciej Bellos FS36251 is quite dark, quite darker than FS36270. However after some time it gets quite lighter, check out the Hellenic Air Force F-16s, especially the Block 30 and 50. So I would go with FS36270, standard F-16 colour, and quite dark when looking at say the Polish Air Force F-16s.
16. October 2019, 20:08
Daniel My 2 cents: I think the gray is correct but your white turned a bit gray through the black base...so since thats hard to correct I would as well choose a darker gray to get the contrast back
16. October 2019, 21:17
Pierre Thanks for all the input guys. I think I'll be able to fix that contrast issue and obtain a darker grey tone with a filter/wash. Or at least I try to convince myself so that I don't have to mask over the same spots again :P

22. March, 18:07
Slavo Hazucha Beautiful work (on both Eagles) - superb (&still realistic) variety in the grey finish and lovely details

The Nozzles are a dream - the KA model stuff seems to really be worth the coin, especially on complex assemblies like here... Almost 2x Aires price, but man, the detail & finesse... And you made it truly shine

Pierre Thank you Patrick and Slavo, I'm glad you both like the final result.

Patrick, I agree with your feelings about the kit. I still love the Hasegawa one for nostalgic reasons and because I prefer the finer engraving, but I already ordered another Academy cat. I used sprue goo for those fuselage pinmarks, but I think I'll go with epoxy putty next time, should be easier and cleaner. In any case, I hope you get to finish yours soon ;)
23. March, 15:53
Patrick Hagelstein When I'm done working my emails from my home office later today, I'll take the long trip to my studio (4 meters) to start working on the Cat again. I used sprue goo too for both the landing gear ejection marks and the rear Sparrow well. The landing gear ones are easy to shave/sand flush, but the Sparrow one is difficult because of the convex shape. Maybe Mr. Surfacer would heave been the easier solution here.
23. March, 16:32
Maciej Bellos Excellent result! Well done Pierre!
