F-14A Tomcat VF-84 Jolly Rogers
Really love the artwork they applied to jet aircraft back in the 70's & 80's, and who doesn't love skull & crossbones on the back of an F-14? Not to mention this aircraft was featured in the iconic film, Final Countdown with one of my all-time favorite actors, Kirk Douglas. The quality Tamiya puts into these kits is really phenomenal, putty & sanding to fill cracks wasn't too bad. Only my 2nd model since getting back into the game, but I enjoy improving my techniques, strive for greater consistency, and avoid (try) the big mistakes. The switched tail rudders was the biggest blunder, but overall, I like how it turned out.
