161606 F-14A Tomcat
1/32 Scale Tamiya
I used the '94 version of the Tomcat as it was better than the earlier version. It still needed help in the
cockpit area. I picked up a Technics cockpit set for it. The detail in the set is outstanding. The final
results are also outstanding.  However,  to get it to fit in the kit, which it is supposedly made for,  is a
major undertaking. Days of filing, grinding and sanding. I found this true for most, if not all, of the after
market cockpit sets from whoever the maker in any scale. They are suppose to be made to fit certain
brands of kits, but you still have lots of work to get them to fit. With some you have lots of work just to
get the cockpit set together as panels don't fit and seats do not fit in the cockpit tub.

Did this way before Digital Cameras so not many photos. The Model is on display at Sullivan County
Airport in upstate N.Y. I now live in NC. Too far for a Road Trip to take more photos.
