I'm currently working on an ST21 model using an old Revell F-14D kit as a base.  A lot of my modelling techniques may be incorrect, but hopefully the finished product will look good.  Currently waiting on paint to finish it, photos to follow.  This model makes use of a lot of 3D printed parts, including most of the weapons.  I'm doing it the way I think it should look, which is a bit different from the concept photos out there.  The build uses AIM-152 AAAMs in place of AIM-120 AMRAAMs, and does away with the Phoenix pallets under the belly since the 152 can leverage the missile wells intended for the old AIM-7 instead.

Going for a configuration similar to what you see with the AMRAAMs here, but with the AIM-152s using the Sparrow launchers instead.

Looks interesting! Keep us posted on this one!
I'll meet you on the dark side of the moon.

Need to repaint some parts, Model Master light ghost gray (lighter gray color)  is hard to come by it seems.

Couple shots of the model from top and bottom.  The AIM-152s are the Hughes ramjet version, 3D printed since I had no other way of re-creating them.

Nice.  Love the AIM-152 loadout.  Makes me wanna see an RAF one bristling with Meteors.  :thumbsup:
So I got that going for me...which is nice....

Spino

Definitely better Pellson, thanks!

Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Yep not sure how these are being shared from Google, not working for me.

Why not attach the images to the post via attachments?

I'm not sure how to do that.  It only gives me the option to link images.

Captain Canada

I like the idea for sure ! No pics for me either.
CANADA KICKS arse !!!!

Long Live the Commonwealth !!!
Vive les Canadiens !
Where's my beer ?

Pellson

I get the pics. Wonder why you don't.
Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition!
