Revell 1/32 F-14A

Just wrapped this one up for the Monogram Mafia GB. Aftermarket tail stiffeners and wolfpack ejection seats plus Eduard PE formation lights are about the only AM parts added. Paints are a combo of Mr Color and MRP .

Phenomenal shading technique, it’s very subtle.  I love it, and the build is just superb.

B-one, that Tomcat is fantastic. Painting and weathering are gorgeous!! =] You nailed it.

Just one question...how big is the forklift that you have to move it around with?! =P That thing must be huge at 1:32.

Thanks everyone, it is a huge kit. I just wish I could jump over to 1/32 for every build.

Bow Down  Absolutely amazing, B_one!  I love that big Revell Tomcat.  I wish they would reissue it.  I'll never forget the day I walked the 3 miles to my nearest Toys-R-Us in the heat of a DC summer to get that kit back when I was 14 years old.  I think the box was nearly as big as I was.  LOL!  One thing I can say with absolute certainty is that my model didn't even come close to looking as phenomenal as yours!

I don't look at too many jet aircraft builds - just not my primary interest - however, this one, being a 1/32 Tomcat, caught my eye. Just superb! Great job!!

That's not a kit!! You photoshopped a real Tomcat!!

Seriously, great job!! You made it look just like a real Tomcat!

I got to stand plane guard at NAS Oceana back in 1985 when I was there for some avionics schools when I was in the Corps, and got to walk around those things while they were turning up the engines getting ready to taxi, plus got to watch them take off in full afterburner at night! Those things could make some noise!!

Lol thanks DD,

   1/32 scale is growing on me. Too bad they take up lot of room.
