You typically get what you pay for!  A cheap price for a “damaged box” Tamiya F-14D was actually much more damaged than just the box…

Correcting that damage made the assembly much more time consuming than normal as I had to work slowly and in stages to correct not only the cracks but also the warped parts too.

There’s likely more filler than most would use on a Tamiya kit, but some of the damage was too great to get a perfect fit in some areas.  Nonetheless the main fuselage is practically finished and I’m quite happy with the engines.

I don’t particularly enjoy cockpits but this model’s will be very visible so I made a bit of an effort.  I completed it to the point of being able to close the forward fuselage.

Edging ever closer to painting…
