It's a very impressive kit, it's more similar to a 1/48 with all the parts and complexity than to a 1/72. I have taken all the sprue and compare it to my Fine Molds F-14 (early A model). Both seem so well done that's difficult to say which one is superior (if one is superior to the other); there are many small differences and probably just assembling them I can have an exhaustive opinion. That said, I have excited to have such great models of my favorite aircraft; they have raised the level above even to Hasegawa and Fujimi (the -A model isn't bad at all) kits. Just a final note: the Greatwall F-14D has a completed set of missile (so yes, even the Sidewinders are in the box) but no air-to-ground armament or pods and, if you like to do a "flying" model as I like, you have to add the pilots.

The weird thing is that moxing.net really early hat a sprue overview with BRUs and LANTIRN pods included. Hopefully a Bombcat is not too long out as I intend to build mine as a late F-14A with TERs mounted on the BRUs.

think I will do it 'out the box' as VF-2 CAG, armed with all air-to-air missiles. As I havè at least other 4 Tomcats on the stash, including a Hasegawa F-14D with both pods, I like the idea to use this one to make the F-14 at the apex of the career as fighter (-D version, mid '90s).
