F-14A (Tamiya 1/48)

I finally managed to publish something again on my blog. This time it's in my opinion one of the best kits ever produced. Tamiya F-14A (kit no. 61114). I used quite a lot of the aftermarket items (see picture below), and some scratchbuilding was done, especially in the wheelbay areas. Resin and photoetched upgrades from Eduard (Brassin), fantastic HGW wet transfers and Furball decals were used for this build. Model was painted with MRP paints and weathered with Ammo weathering products. Markings portray an airplane from VF-143, based on USS America in 1976.
