I now know the angle issues that have been discussed. I was wondering if anybody had solved them and how they did it.

Get a Tamiya Tomcat.

In all seriousness, there is no easy fix as far as I can see as it is such a large portion of the fuselage that needs adjustment.

Mmm trade an issue where buy swapping the intake ramps the problem is fixed as opposed to going with the half scribed innaccurate shaped forward fuselage and totally botched canopy of the Tamiya kit..
Seriously take a look at Lofty comforts Trump F14D build his hints about fixing the massive "issue" i keep hearing about.
Trump f14 is a killer kit and flogs the Tamiya offering into the weeds on numerous levels not just the forward fuselage and canoy issues the Tamiya kit has.
At the end of the day both buid into fine looking cats i just laugh how people think the Tamiya kit is so good when the Trump kit has shown some glaring flaws in the Tamiya "masterpiece"..
Time to spare..go by air!
