I am very nearly finished with my Tamiya F-14A. Tried to get it ready for last Saturday's Seattle show, but it comes down to the AIM-9 Sidewinders, plus i'm not quite thru finishing the ejection seats. 95% of mistakes come in the last 5% of construction, so thought it better to take a deep breath and step back from the workbench.

Here is a selection of photos from the build process...

Very nice! Makes me want to get one (not that it would be anything like that good!) but too many kits.
