Default 1/48 Tamiya F-14A VF-1

Every thing is now officially done! I kicked my own ass getting it painted up but I still had fun build. Not 100% accurate, but I REALLY like it...

Fantastic! How did you figure out masking the tan of the radome? Did you use the Hasegawa kit as a guide or did you use photos?

Thank you. I just looked at pics & eyeballed it. That Tamiya tape that can be used around curves works great.
