Tamiya 1/48 F-14A TomCat
Hello fellow modelers,
This is my final kit for this year, and I wanted a really fine one. There’s nothing else to be said regarding Tamiya’s F-14A, so let’s just say it worths every dollar spent.
Decided to do the Bounty Hunters because I’m a big fan of the colorful high-vis US Navy jets in the 70’s. I’ve used the Quinta 3D decals for the cockpit, which are really great and easy to set. Also, used Galaxy masks and they’re a big help for painting details with precision.
Weathered as a mid cruise bird, not too much dirt, but not pristine either.
The kit decals are typical Tamiya, i.e., slightly to the thick side, but Mr Softer dealt with them easily.
Hope you enjoy and, of course…..
Merry Xmas and a very good New Year!
