This was quite an enjoyable build despite a few issues with the plastic. The cockpit left a lot to be desired but scrubbed up Ok in the end, after all you can hardly see it with the canopy down. Oh, and the canopy is a bit of an iffy fit but goes on alright with a bit of TLC.
Once again the thing that let this Academy kit down were the Academy decals. No amount of setting solution could persuade them to play nicely, so most of them went in the bin. In the end though she turned into a fine looking F-14A and what’s more she was ready for Christmas day!
