With any decals sheets of which I don't know the history, I tend to spray on a coat of acrylic varnish or two, just in case. that pretty well works every time, but of course you then have the hassle of trimming each part closely.
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! :)

After a short break due to the holidays and a business trip to Asia, its now time to start something new. This time a paint-job for a F14 Tomcat.

This is the box:


This is in there:


And this is how far I got so far:

I remember an F-14 in Marineflieger colors (the late wraparound Tornado scheme) from a convention a couple of years ago, looked very good!

I always liked the F14, a quite impressive bird. Did not had so much time recently, but at least a bit more painting on the lower part of the hull is completed:



Work on the cockpit also continued:



Next would be the upper part of the aircraft.

Work progress is quite good, the upper parts are now back from the airbrush cabin:







Upper and lower parts still have to be glues together. And then "only" all the smaller parts are missing :)

Thanks, yes, this is quite similar to what i have in mind for it. Sorry for my late reply, I was on vacation (glad that I am back before the Corona madness broke out completely) and when being back, there was no Internet at home anymore ... :banghead:

Have to return to model building now.

Pretty! A Royal Navy version would still be possible, too!  :rolleyes:

Somehow you would think that now that you should not leave your house and keep social distance, you find more time for model building. But strangely there was much more work to do than normal - and no, I am not selling toilet paper or produce it....

But at least, the Seekatze is now standing on its own wheels, I am currently thinking about which weapons to add to it.
