OK, this one took me a while! Went back into “real world” for an F-14A Tomcat, with livery from VF-101 “Grim Reapers” squadron. 1/32 scale plastic kit from Tamiya.

This was a straight up, out of the box build. Only modification I did was changing out the decals with the Grim Reapers set from Fighter Town decals. No other addition aftermarket parts were used.

Only real trouble I had came at the end. For some reason, I just could not get the clear canopy part to fit into the frame properly, so of course the frame doesn’t fit onto the kit properly. Oh well, you can always cover up building mistakes with proper photography!
