1/32 Tamiya F-14 'Top Gun', Pilot finished

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....

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 :)
