1/32 Tamiya F-14 'Top Gun'

Postby Morris » Thu Apr 30, 2020 8:58 pm

As I mentioned in my BOTY, I thought I would build the Tamiya F-14 as Cruise's Top Gun mount. So I start again :D :D ...

I will use the figures and another cockpit from Aires. I've gone back and started cleaning the fill in work on the aft fuselage where I stopped awhile back....

In between other work, I completed the instrument work on Tom Cruise’s F-14A+ and weathered the cockpit...seats and figures next (Maverick and Goose)....

Very detailed cockpit there, did you paint the instruments panels or did they come pre painted? If you painted these yourself, you done an amazing job

Hi Roy - the panels are kind of a combination....eduard panels with bits added from my punch and die set for a 3D effect if that makes since...so a bit of both :)
