Hey all,

Welcome to the new site everyone!!

Thought I would get things started with my latest update for my 1/32 F-14 build.

In my last post on the Google+ page I had just got the 2 halves of the fuselage together.
I now have the wings attached. So it is starting to look like it should now.

Scott.

Looks great! Are the wings going to be fixed in that position? Just curious when I build mine.

Hey all,

I am making a start on the shading of the panel lines. So far it's looking great however at this large scale it is going to take hours to complete and my hand is already starting to cramp.

The joys of modelling.

F-14 build update.

Many hours later I have mostly finished painting in the panel lines.
It certainly make a difference bringing this detail out.

Why am I humming "Danger Zone" whilst watching this build? :?

Looking good there. Makes me want to ditch the refit and start one of my Sukhoi's.

F-14 Build update.

Now that I have done all the shading for the panel lines I have made a start on the highlight colour to start blending everything in.
So far I have started the highlight colour on the left top around the area where the wing goes into the fuselage.
