  1. Wow !!!!!
    This looks like an amazing kit. The details, decals and the weapons set ………………….all stunning.

  2. Yes, an excellent follow on from their F-14A kit. If like the first offering a much less intense build compared to the Academy, Hasegawa, Mono/Revell, Fujimi , Hobby Boss kits. The approach from Tamiya is well thought out on a very complicated air frame. Looking forward in building both Tamiya offerings.

  3. Hello editor,
    You surely did put some effort in this preview. Splendid model.
    Thanks for sharing this with us all.
    regards, Dirk / The Netherlands.
