This is a really BIG 1/32 scale Tamiya F14D. It uses lots of resin to make the last version of this famous fighter. Wolfpack for the engine and external parts, and another company for the cockpit. Not exactly sure who made that as I lost the instructions some time ago.

The Tamiya kit is old and not without many fit issues. I plan on building their really nice 1/48 scale kit soon, but this guy...........Get your putty ready.

I used decals to do one of the last in service Tomcats. VF-31s CO bird. I am not a fan of all the extra badges on the tail, so I modelled the airframe as it would have been mid-way through its final cruise.
