F-14 Build update.

I have finished painting on the NO STEP markings on the wings.
I have also made a start on the other markings that are getting painted on.
Also made a start on painting the red lines on the edges of the main landing gear bays.

I thought I would give you guys a sneak peak of what the diorama will look like when it is finished. The setting up of it was also to see if everything is going to fit onto the base. I just have to more flight deck figures to get.

F-14 Build update.

While waiting for what I need to finish the panel lines I decided to make a start on the external fuel tanks and some of the missiles.

You can see the progress of the steps in the photos of the Aim-54 Phoenix missiles being weathered.

F-14 Build update.

I have basically finished all the panel lines now, just a few left underneath. I have now made a start on the markings/decal and is now all coming together.
