I was also thinking of F-14, but in 48th scale. But decided to build this instead:


I think this is my 1st Kinetic kit. I've read from some reviews that there could be some fit issues, but probably (hopefully...) nothing too serious.

So, today's my birthday (yay.) and I got some pretty good stuff, including a nice decal sheet and some details for the Revell 1/48 F/A-18F. So here's my pick for this campaign:





Jolly Rogers 75th anniversary? Yes, please!

Made a start on my Gripen.
First things first, preventing a tail dragger.



Even with this amount of weight the CoG without weapons attached is still only just in front of the main landing gear. So once it was closed up I dropped a few more sinkers down through the fuselage to help out.

I understand it's a bit of a dog, but I got it un-started from a friend. I'm PLANNING on doing it as East German... we'll see
