Great twist on an inflight pose for a model, very ingenious!

Thanks Mark. Now I discovered it poses a whole new lighting challenge to get a good photo!! Might need to wait for some daylight..

Thanks Robert. It's a nice scheme, isn't it? Usual Trumpeter though.. unnamed scheme and no decals for it. But my masking skills have improved😉

Indeed, it is, Paul 🙂 Masking must have been a tedious process here - but the effect is worth your perseverance and skill.

That is such a great build, love the scheme and the display concept 👍 How did you manage to make these nicely curved wing masks?

Good idea to counter the notorious modelers problem: lack of shelf space! 👍

Thank you everyone for the compliments, I'm glad you are enjoying it😉
Łukasz - I ended up making 5 patterns for masks; a tedious afternoon of measuring and scaling from the paint scheme diagram!

Superb masking! And what a great presentation idea!

great way to display a great model 👍
Wonder if they used the same seats as the F-14D or a "not-so-licensed" home production, those really look familiar despite the armrests

Paul Gallagher
Thanks again to all! Daniel - yes, the seats do look very similar but I don't know the design lineage.
