[WIP] F-14A Sundowners Part 1

Actually started on this kit while working on the HG 00 Gundam, was planning to enter it for a local competition, did not have enough time to complete it (well, I spent most of it on the 00 Gundam haha)

Academy F-14A kit in 72 scale, one of the cheapest 1/72 tomcat I can find locally. I built this kit before with the decals provided (VF-51 Screaming Eagles), completed model can be viewed here.

This time, I will be using the decal sheet from the old Hasegawa's F-14A kit. (no idea how to deal with raised panel lines)

Boxart of the Academy kit and decal sheet

Work starts with the cockpit and ejection seats, decals provided for the control panels, ejection seats quite detailed.

 Rest of the kit went pretty well together, little filler required except for these areas.
