Tamiya 1/48 F-14A Tomcat

I promise to get back to What-Iffery soon..but another RW build.  My 9th COVID Lockdown build.  It took 2 weeks, a good bit longer than the 4 days I've been averaging. 

The kit is amazing.  Definitely one of the most expensive I've ever built, but worth every penny.  Built OOB with the only additions being Tamiya tape for the canvas cover over the RIO instruments and an Eduard ejection seat detail set.  Paints are Vallejo and Hataka acrylics.  A complex subject but really well engineered kit that was a lot of fun to build.  Except maybe for the hundred or so decals on the missiles.  lol
