Looking good Matty. This is a cow of a kit to get together. This is the second one and again I wish I had never started it.
Don't think it is up to the usaul Hasegawa standard. How have you found it so far? :x :x
I'm going to toss the wheels and tyres away as the tyres have turned to jelly :evil: in the box over the years of being kept.
I will use Royal Resin wheels. :)

Here's where I am up to( but ever slowly). I have the pit assembled only. Wings done and lights in, reinforcements on tail removed as this is supposed to be an early F14 tail . :roll: :oops:

Looking good so far fellas. Those seats look great too Steve!
I arrived home from Singapore yesterday so I hope to get a bit more done on mine this week.
Glad I'm not the only one whose had a few fit issues (mine's the Academy kit).

Have had a couple of days off with the flu and hence some extra modeling time as well. A few touch-ups to do, another gloss coat and then she'll be ready for decals on the weekend. Unfortunately I cracked the canopy, so at this stage I need to source another :(

I'm also trying to decide what weapons I'll deck it out with...
