Excellent cockpit Roland, your perseverance has paid off :)
16. November, 09:04
Roland Gunslinger
Thank you all for your positive comments! That's a big motivation. Much appreciated!
Especially with such a large project (for me at least) the mojo varies from time to time. Even if I build models: patience is not exactly my strength :D

Donald Dickson II
Thank you gentlemen. :) Maciej, I hope so!
12. November, 12:46
Clifford Keesler
Both are looking good Donald. I have only had one Tomcat that was a tail sitter, that was a Revell "D" that I built with the wings swept fully aft, learned then to add nose weight no matter what. LOL.
12. November, 23:01
Donald Dickson II
OK, last pics of the AMK until I am done. Just detail stuff left. Like pylons and seats and probes. Well, I guess the seats are a bit more than a detail. But hey. LOL Decals completed. Not sure how to do the targeting laser thingies that are on these instead of real missiles.
15. November, 20:19
Clifford Keesler
You can find pictures of them online. I use a side winder body, just cut the fins off and sand it where the fins were, then I use stretched sprue to make the 4 antenna that mount where the forward fins usually are and then one on the nose of the missile body. Hope that helps.
16. November, 02:26
Donald Dickson II
That absolutely does help! Thank you!
16. November, 13:21

Hey Don, nice work on black beauty! If you can get your hands on their ordnance set you also have two SAIP pods in there (can recommend that set for all modern jet aficionados)

Thanks, Michael and Tim, the modeling of my Cat has stood still for a while due to the Bf 109 GB, my plan is to finish this model before the end of the year! It's just a matter of adding some PLW, weathering a bit with oil paint, placing wheelbase doors, and hanging the ordnance ... piece of a cake LOL :D!

How are the decals for it though? I may buy it for that part only. Use the plastic to test techniques on.

Due to how hard it is to find good aftermarket top gun decals. Those I find are about 19.99 plus shipping and handling another 20.

:D The main reason for the what-if build is the IMHO bad kit. It's not really a F-14D. At least not without a lot of effort. So, lets do a fun build.

@Treehugger, you're welcome sir...And may i compliment you on this very nice job you're doing on this "Dog of a Cat"
1. September, 03:16

Still no shortcuts taken! I really enjoy watching this battle!
Some thoughts:
Pic 61: You could simply sand the rear seat underside? :) Since those are height adjustable in the real jet I think this would be my cheap solution to this
Pic 65: This is a very, very sensible step, wish I had used that on mine...
Pic 67: How do you get around the engine parts in between?

If I can just get the damn canopy pieces on without screwing up, I think it will end up being a nice looking model. :) Except the nose gear bay which will look so basic, it won't be interesting to look at, and I'll be happy I managed to get the nose wheel on in the first place. :) I am currently painting the cockpit. I started with glossy black primer.

@Daniel
I moved the whole canopy down, which made the rear seat fit. I did try to sand the base of the rear seat, but it wasn't enough. Aah, interesting about the engine parts. I checked just now and it looks like my rod will go clear, just barely, so it looks it will fit.

I am just amazed at what you are doing with this kit. I was looking last night and figured out why I had so much trouble with my kit. The 2 prior ones I built were newer boxings, the last one I built was one of the first boxings. It had been in my stash for a long time.
6. September, 01:04
Treehugger
Ooh, the figures are tricky stuff. I tried to make the look as good as I could as mere plastic figures, but masking the tiny edges is tricky. I airbrushed the black primer, green and white, but it seems it is now back and forth fixing things here and there with a tiny brush. The hands and the few details I will have to paint with a small brush. I used multiple layers of Vallejo Green Flourescent over glossy black primer, with a brush and I think it worked nicely, or ok. Still more painting to be done with the cockpit/seats/figure. I will have to add a gloss coat to the figures and seats, and add a pin wash.

Yea you have to be careful breathing that stuff. I used to build R/C model aircraft when I was younger. We used silk and dope to cover them with before they came out with the iron on coverings. I spent many an hour with my eyes going round and round. Smelly stuff. LOL.

Haha - no Martin - it's not your fault :-D Patrick - I've started this Tomcat long time ago :) About 2 years I suppose. I want to build him OOB. Meantime my friend convinced me to build Su-34. When I finished Fullback I've returned to Tomcat. But ... the CAG bird is not my favourite type of markings. I prefer "regular soldiers" :-D So I've found decals with VF-2 markings. And then ResKit wheels :-D And that would be all but... I've started a research about this particular bird and step by step the Connie's Last Dance project was born :-D Yup - I know this is probably worst Tomcat model out there but.. I've started and I will finished it :) Oh - I forgot - I've got the discontinued PE parts from Eduard dedicated to this model. That ensured me that I MUST finished it :-D
But I'm also sure that my next Tomcat will a GWH's one :)
Thx guys for interesting and warm welcome :)
7. October 2019, 19:25
Patrick Hagelstein
:D reading your whole story, it could ONLY be the Revell one. ;) In that case, good luck and we'll guide you along your dark path of Tomcat building. There will be light at the end of the tunnel in form of that GWH Tomcat as Martin can surely tell you about then. :)

haha to be fair, Revel is definitely not the worst 72 Tomcat, that place is occupied by Italeri beyond any doubt, Revell being actually pretty good in comparison :) But on the other hand, after building many Hasegawa and Academy kits, the GWH is just a dream :)
7. October 2019, 21:06

Piotr, could you tell me where you found those Dr Pepper Resins Hornet intakes? I don't seem to find a(n online) shop stocking them and I can not read the Dr Pepper Resins website...

Piotr Sarniński-Górecki
Didn't find them though... They were on the list of options to Hornet in scalemates so I add them but not to the stash - only to wishlist. I'm afraid they are unavaible :(
17. October 2019, 21:48

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.

That's cool! Following for sure

to Treehuger, I used stainless steel tubes to represent the gear oleos. As for the supporting pole, steel tube is better than acrylic rod since it is rigid and has sufficient strength

Roland Gunslinger
Please don't get it wrong: I don't want to badmouth the kit, but you should consider that this is a relatively old Revell rebox with a dubious accuracy of fit. In my opinion you won't be happy with this kit. I would recommend buying a better kit and extra decals. Just my2cents ...

scalemates
it is a nice box art though! :)

Thank you Roland, I was indeed a bit too premature to put this in my wish list, after doing some research I agree with you completely.
3. September, 11:57
Roland Gunslinger
I already had the kit in my shopping cart :D
IMHO the new Revell kits are very good. The artwork and the instructions in particular are very appealing. And the new WW2 32nd kits are great.
I think it's a shame that Revell used these old molds here.
3. September, 12:19
3. September, 13:13
Treehugger
I bought the Revell Airbus 350 in 1:144 and to my annoyance, even though this was a new kit the clear part for the canopy didn't fit well with the plastic. Trusting brand names is a big no no for me, and so I place my trust in good reviews where you can get a good idea if there are sink marks (lol) and crap.
3. September, 13:20
Roland Gunslinger
@Treehugger
Of course, you shouldn't blindly trust a brand. I actually mean that Revell have shown with some new molds (32nd Spitfire, Focke Wulf, ME262) that they definitely have the potential to bring very good kits to the market and, of all things, they use these old molds for such a popular topic.
3. September, 13:32
Jos Jansen
IMHO the Rafale M 1/48 is one of the best molded kit from Revell ever, you sometimes have to do some research to find the right good Revell kit or listen to the mates her on SCM ;) Of course it is a Hasegawa rebox but their Phantom FGR Mk.2 1/48 is also a very good sharp molded kit, and cheaper then the original Hasegawa ones!
3. September, 16:59
Cortex
1978 release, that's pretty old : )
I think -with all the great new releases we now have- the strategy for modeller today is to get the best kit they can find for their money. Because you might get an old cheap kit, but you want get the satisfaction you seek plus you'll spend money on paints and tools for a bad kit.

Thanks for the info, I greatly appreciate the input. Coming back after so many *decades*, I'm learning it all over again! As for the 'cat, I have the Hasegawa kit already, so I'll probably try to make the best of what I have, but I will admit I have a backup on the decals. If it all goes pear shaped, I'm thinking the recent Academy 1:72 release plus the decals I have for the Vandy 1 version. The aircraft has a special meaning to me, so I'm definitely going to work out the best option here!

More progress - and looking all good and shiny (actually messy & dirty, but in an entirely good sense :) )

Do you find just one rod sufficient to hold the full opulence of a 48-scale Tomcat safely in the air? I used two on the F-111, which works perfectly, my Hornet got one and is pretty wobbly on it, but then that´s a longer rod and a more "pro-motion" angle...

Also, are you doing a landing-approach with unspent ordnance or a post-take-off scene?

Thanks mates!
Yep, this cat is returning to the boat after dropping one of two bombs on the sortie, quite common during the last wars where fighters were often just waiting on station for targets to appear. Often in vain.

@ Treehugger: yes, I tried it on my big hornet where I had a truckload of cool ordnance and just couldnt choose which was the coolest :)
You can see pics of different loadouts here: Blacklions in OIR - Completed | Album by halohead (1:32)
To be honest I didnt change the load out that often since then...but i could anytime! :D

@slavo: Since we have few earthquakes over here I trust the small rod^^ Its pretty stiff as is is quite short (twss) having a tailsitter also helps the balance here ;)
And since my F-16 still sits gracefully on her super wobbly arched bicycle spoke, I dont worry about this construction.

Tomcats still coming up, great ! Still second half of 2020 to come, maybe it will bring more isolation for modellers :D

Yes, I've got several planned and that's just me and there's others out there as well. This is more or less a test run.

Wow!, a great execution of a less-usual F-14 scheme/theme....years of economic isolation for Iran provides some modeller's benefits for their airforce's subjects.

>you have a user selling a set in 1/48....
I do not need 48. 1/72 only.

>and MYK has one set in 1/72 U.S. Navy F-14D Tomcat VX-9
There is not playboy bunny in this set :(

Some times I think, that decal makers are people with very-very strange logic :(
29. June, 13:17
Spanjaard
i do agree with that Evgeny... but if you just miss the bunny, that part is easy to be replicated with a mask. or you can get a 1/72 for a phantom, and get the bunny from there
29. June, 13:19
Spanjaard
not sure if they are still in business, but the set F-4J Phantom II VX-1 Vandy 1..(HobbyDecal AL72001V1, 1:72) could give you all you miss in the MYK. i must say that most of it is dry is dry transfers. i did use the 1/48 for my Black bunny Phantom. got nuts to get the 1000. stencills, but it was worthy

I would strongly avoid the 1:48 version of the Academy tomcat, but the 1:72 is afaik better without me having that 1:72 kit myself (the one you linked).
21. June, 12:17
Felinx
Ah, alright. Cool, thanks for the advise. Much appreciated
24. June, 11:14
Treehugger
So the thing is that the Academy tomcat has the same box art for the 1:48 kit and the 1:72 (newer) kit, but afaik the 1:72 kit has at least other clear parts by the looks of it. I would think the 1:72 mold is entirely different (better), but I don't know that.

Łukasz... wait till the hairspray sodden cotton gets stuck to both your tweezers and the light bulb. ;) When that happens, I just call it "adding extra volume" to the explosion. ;)

Thanks Slavo. I was thinking about trying something like this for the F-111, but chickened out. I'm glad I saw it through this time. Thanks also to Frank for his understated comments. :D. And no worries Alec. This one sort of just rolled down hill. I did just start a kind of Area 88 WHIf project... so stay tuned to this channel. ;)

Imagination can be a real joy. Perhaps you can talk Lode into modifying his Hood into an explosion as well?
15. June, 19:07
Spanjaard
Amazing result Greg, crazy idea,but executed to perfection. Not many would have dared to en try, and even less would have pass it with such flying colours :)
17. June, 00:43
Greg Baker
I think Lode's ships could do with a few more explosions... y'know... just to add character. I'll suggest it to him. ;)

Also, Spanjaard, I've said it before, but I enjoy the mental gymnastics involved with modelling destruction. In real life, it's much easier to destroy something than create it (which small-minded people prove to me time and time again). But in modelling, you have to create the creation, AND the destruction - wether that means blowing up a Tomcat, or rusting out an El Camino. That always fascinated me.

Hm, there are two stripes between canopy and cockpit. If you planning a closed canopy maybe it's better don't use these and fill the gaps with filler. These stripes are to high in my opinion.
If you want a super accurate cat you have to fill some rivets, especially wings and fuselage underside.

I am very conflicted about the Academy kit. A lot of work for questionable result but as my decal mule build got repurposed as a toy for my daughter, I see it a lot and I have to say some details really keep this kit relevant (strangely accurate canopy cover)

Very interested in what you make of it :)
12. May, 18:06

Wrong thread Martin? :)

Edit: I have the 1:48 Academy Tomcat (12253) and that kit is not good. I am concerned about the panel lines atm, which seem too faint here and there.

The base kit got me fooled as well as I presumed it to be a Hasegawa kit... Looking into it, it is indeed a rebox of the 1988 Academy kit.

this is my second Tomcat built 1975. Only some fragments are left in a mixed box (grave) and those old reddish pictures (I cured them a bit). As you see i made a lot of lettering with a Rapidograph (with ink!). Who knows? Those were these days.....
Cheers, Tom

Thank god there are no fotos left of how MY builds looked back in 75....... I was 8 and used to play with them of course. Not even fragments left. They were no way even near your results :) I think we used to burn the remains usually....

Is that GB project?
Although im a fan of "airworthy" Tomcats, the damaged engine would be looking cool.

Yeah, Roland. I'm planning this one and another Area 88 project, AREA 88 : "The Final Showdown - Part 1” | Project by strobez (1:144) to be entries in the F-14 GB. This one will feature my crappier Dragon F-14 kit getting blown out of the sky by friendly fire. The other one is a dramatic showdown between a very nice 1/144 Revell F-14 and an Edward MiG-21. ;)
