F-14A Tomcat, VF-31 Tomcatter mid1980's,1/72 Hasegawa.

April 16, 2020 · in Aviation · · 9 Comments

This is the original Hasa. molding of the F-14A. with older microscale decals which of course I used the VF-31 selection. The kit went together well, I was apprehensive in building this after the experience that I had with the Ertl/AMT. kit. I did add a piece of clear sprue under the fuel tanks, I wasn't sure if the landing gear would holdup the weight of the model. Thus completes my VF-31 post WW2 aircraft collection. Not sure if I'll do a VFA-31 Super Hornet.
