Building the Tamiya Grumman F-14A Tomcat (part 3)

Sudenly realized that I've neglected to update my build progress. You'll have to excuse me. For the eagled eyed you'd already noticed that I've written a review of the kit build here https://plasticfantastique.com/my-builds/grumman-f-14a-tomcat-tamiya-1-48/.

It was a thoroughly enjoyable build and a very good kit. It's always challenging when you use a lot of after market PE-stuff but here I found the largest challenge in the after market position lights I bought. To get them in place you had to cut away part of the wing edges etc. and to get this exact and unnoticeable was hard.

It went well though and I actually managed to win first prize at the local build challenge at IPMS Uppsala. (reported here but, alas, in Swedish).

Here is the result anyways:
