Posted by Rory T on Monday, October 02, 2017 1:00 AM

Hello fellow modelers it's been a while since i have posted on the the forum and hope all is well with you all. As i stated in subject area I have this kit but the instructions are in Korean? and i can not figure out the color call out for the kit. I have looked on line but so far i can not find a English version or set of instructions. Any help would be great, Thank you.

Rory, Not sure if this helps but go to https://www.super-hobby.com/products/item_name-194868.html and click on the photo of the instructions underneath the main photo. It is for 1/144 scale but it does have 2 pages of instructions ans the colours are by number and are listed on the 2nd page of instructions.

Rory, Found it. Try https://www.mojehobby.pl/products/F-14A-TOMCAT-105712-1.html

Again look for the instruction photos under the main photo. If you view the photo and then save the photo and than you should be able to print the photos to get the correct colours.

It appears to be a standard "hi-vis" scheme, so that would be FS 16440 Light Gull grey over FS 17875 white. 

The triangular wing root seals are FS 36231 Dark Gull Grey and the radome is FS 33613 Radome Tan.

Wing, stabilator and vertical fin leading edges are bare metal (silver/stainless steel?).

It's an alumized epoxy  coating called corogard.
