1/72 Academy F-14

Gallery Article by Victor Rene Carlos on July 13 2017



Hi guys, here's one of the legendary birds that I always dreamed of, the mighty Tomcat. 

This is in 1/72 scale my Academy. No problem with the fit, and the nice part is that it came with a ton of weapons.

The scheme is for VF-2 Bounty Hunters. This kit is all hand painted using Tamiya light grey, gun metal, semi gloss black, gloss white and flat base. I used Tamiya accent for panel lining and some weathering master.

For the decals, I simply used floor wax. It seamlessly pulled the decals in between the panels. 

I opted to load it lightly with 2 Phoenixes, 2 AIM9 and 1 AIM7, the starboard glove pylon is for the LANTIRN pod that I will attach later. Thanks for looking, and also many thanks to Steve.

From the Philippines,
