That's a real beauty Roland! I'm really digging subtle dirtiness on this build.

A much awaited reveal from the GB..! Pic 21 looks pretty much like your project title picture. Great job & you brought another rather different perspective on the F-14, blue-ish accents & different weathering compared to the "wet" ones from the carrier decks... 👍 I think you could actually make a fortune on selling this one claiming it's a practical effect studio model from 1986...😉

I love photo 7 and 31. 🙂 As if looking at the plane in a movie or something.

Thank you Spanjaard, James, Augie, Nathan, Slavo, Konrad, Jos, Sergej, Clifford, Greg and Treehugger for your nice comments! I appreciate your kind words!
Scalemates is the best "Mojo-Afterburner" that I know 😄

@Treehugger Yes, the Sidewinders AIM-9G/H are from the kit. IMHO they are better than the "Hobby Boss" Sidewinders but there are no Eduard either.
It's all OOB except the Camera-POD (carved from a Hasegawa targeting POD), the Alfa Probe (I didn't even know why I even had it 😄 ) and the decals.

I know I've written it before, but the kit is fantastic. If you want a quick and easy build, I think this is the best kit on this scale on the market. There were no problems at all and the level of detail is relatively high.

I noticed that there are rivets on this kit of yours, which seems nice. None of that on my Academy one in 1:48.

Treehugger, yes the Academy is more „minimal". I have started it a while ago. I had bad fit issues. Now it's in the Box of doom 😄

Rui, thank you! Much appreciated 🙂

This GB has become a real Tomcat celebration! and what would that party be without a topgun machine? Your take on it is really a joy to behold, cool color shades, cool pose, great stuff!

Thanks Daniel 🙂 The kit was a pleasure to build: Shake and bake 😄

Wow Roland, this is really quite fantastic! The weathering is just spot on compared to the movie cats. Bravo!
