Top Gun!

This is one of my favourite all time builds, the 1/48 Hasegawa F-14A Tomcat in VF-111 "Sundowners" markings.

This was the first model I ever put on display in public, it did a tour of model shop window displays and competition tables, certainly racked up a few miles along the way!

It's old now, and one day I will build a newer, better model. In the meantime I often look back on this one and remember the travels and laughs it brought me.




And here is the real one at home at NAS Miramar, California in 1986.
