-a little more progress on my front, at last Iv'e gotten the fuselage together.
The 'Dreaded' Hasegawa step on the aft cockpit flaring; was again attempted. I actually put some bracing in at this point to stretch this point vertically. So now the bottom and top points are,...at least without a large step down.

-anyway that's it for me, I'm off camping for the coming week - trying to forget What the word obligation means......... :twisted:
(btw - kudos to Florence and his signature.......merry christmas)

small update, progress a little slow. This is an old kit with much work required to get a good fit.
Had to work on nose cone fitment and fuselage/cockpit fit. :cry: :oops: :cry:

It is supposed to be the best F14 kit. Even so its not without its problems. :cry: :cry:
And those awful tyres and wheels :x . Hasegawa should update and re tool this one.
Still a popular model but I think disadvantages slow kit sales.
Cheers
