Matty
You've inspired me to try to build something and finish it. I'll have a go - 1\/32 Revell F-14a from the late 70's bought from K-Mart on special - my first big modelling investment. Has survived 3 house moves, several different boxes and several false starts, tossing about ideas and repacking. Probably isn't a great model but from memory it was big! You gotta start somewhere!
And a 1/48 Revell A just in case the big one is too hard.
I hope this reply works - first try. When I work out how to post pics I will.
Thanks for suggesting this as a build-I just love these planes.

I will try and get three Tomcat's in during the two month period, although we will see how that goes!

First up is the Hobby Boss 1/72 F-14A Tomcat, which I will do up as the VF-111 bird featured in the box.

Next will be a Hasegawa F-14D 1/72 Tomcat, with either a VX-30 or VF-31 Line Bird Scheme

Lastly a Hasegawa F-14A 1/72, in NSAWC colours 2002. Ex VF-24 Tomcats that were completely banged up and weathered.

G'day Matty,

I'll gladly join in, but there is no way i will finish anything by November. I'll do what i can to support your group build though :)

I've just ordered some remove before flight flags, a cockpit set and a carrier deck display base from Luckymodel :P

Thanks Matty! It will help :) I'll try my best to finish a Tomcat for your build. I'm getting a new left hip in mid November too so its definitely going to be a busy month!

For the record I'm not exactly a proficient modeler, so the VX-30/VF-31 and NSAWC will be a battle for me in terms of paint colours.. haha

Any suggestions would be more than welcome in terms of what paint brands and colours you are using for the Tactical Grey schemes... got VF-111 sorted though ;)
