    After 5 months of work, I managed to finish another project, which gave me more trouble than I thought. An F-14A from Tamiya, which I converted into an F-14B, after much work and lots of upgrades, from Aires ( exhaust nozzle, weighted wheels), Edward (interior, exterior, placards, ejection seat details), Phoenix ( pitot tube, AOA sensor), Teknics ( interior), Wolfpack Design ( ladder), Zotz (decals), each got what he was better. Full rescribed, something scratchbuild, finally came out of what you see. I hope you enjoy.

    Stunning. I have the same kit to build so is there any chances you can tell me what gave you the troubles.

    I had no problems with this model, besides the fact that it had to fully rescribed.

    Well, you've done a fantastic job there. Well done. Hope you can enter it in a contest as you'd definitely have a shot at #1 I'd say.
