Looks really nice I think. I wonder, I've seen on more than one tomcat model here, maybe it's just with the D versions, I don't see any trace of the extendable fins just beside the two large air intakes. Maybe they removed them after the F-14A?

Is the ocean photo in the background blurry? Maybe you could get a better photo, if you had a sharp ocean texture photo in the background, and used a shallow'ish depth of field for the foreground tomcat? Or, just getting a better depth of field that way, by relying on any blurring made by the camera, if only slight, instead of relying on a blurry background?

Very nice work Zhou! Very realistic finish and awesome presentation. Well done!

Treehugger, the glove vanes were disabled and welded closed on all F-14As rather early in their service if I remember correctly. New production F-14Ds did not have them at all but upgraded ones still had welded closed vanes I believe.

I love it!! looks absolutely on point I am very excited in which markings it will be :)

Had deleted the original album by mistake. It is a pity that scalemates does not provide a 'confirm' button :(

I really like the dynamic setup. is this gonna be a landing scene when the turkey is at its most majestic?
5. May, 12:57
It is going to be a takeoff scene @Martin von Schreckenstein

What kind of metal was used for the landing gear parts? Looks like maybe a little hollow.

I think I would use a clear acrylic rod and not metal for showing the tomcat up in the air, somehow the metal rod in photo 9 stands out too much. Or, maybe a thinner metal rod could also work.

The nacelle putty thing looks interesting, that's what a lot of folks complain about. Curious to see how it turns out after scribing.

Wow, what a stunning hornet! Love the loadout, the pose, the perfect weathering and the photography. Awesome mate!!

Very nice job, well researched & executed modding of the landing gear and great surface treatment - particularly like the job on the sides in front of the intakes - top

thank you!

Thanks for the comments. To Eduardo Soto: The RIO does has a cup of Luckin Coffee in his hand, wishing me never dropping small parts to the floor :)

:D Holding beverages during TO or Landing is a kinda bad idea, especially on the boat^^

Top notch! This beautiful build looks like a real aircraft.
17. April, 16:50
I agree with Neuling, this is another gem you are showing here, I again really like the dynamic pose and the way you took the pics, awesome stuff
19. April, 11:52
I think you should have some fun and use an image editor to erase the stand from at least some of the photos. :) As time goes by, perhaps the photos will be what you have in store.

Nice to see your work-steps on the LG & the paint-job - the outcome was quite spectacular & ultra-realistic Hornet - as seen here on the title pic too :)

The max-extension legs just before touchdown really look goof

I worked on exactly the same kit, but added Aires cockpit, Nozzles & Wells - (none of which was specifically for Kinetic...) - the Nozzles are very nice & fit fine, the cockpit was a real pain to fit & probably only worth the effort if you want an open one - I discovered that too late. The wells do not fit the Kinetic kit at all, lot of sheet added, but once there, are really nice... Just in case you want to build another one soon ;)
17. April, 15:41
I would like to keep modification to a minimum, in order to reduce difficulty in the building :) Building OOB is fun :)
