Next was to add detail to the cockpit, for this I used Eduards F14A cockpit designed for the Tamiya version.

Engine exhaust units, again the kit parts very simple



So I'm using the Aries units again not designed for this kit.

To get the aries units to fit I had to place them loose inside the kit while I glued it all together, Then I was able to adjust the kit to allow them to fit.

Thanks guys.

Junk Pilot all I would say about this kit is research the model if your doing the VF-1 Wolfpack the kit is very basic and is also missing some details Confused

Hi guys thank for looking in heres the next update.

Decals all done only took two days...Blushing

So this is how the instruction show the fuel pods. I looked everywhere and could fine any reference showing them like this.


So I've adapted them to what I could fine.


As per the instructions.


Again with these the decals didn't look right so I added some more from the stash.


And these also didn't look right so I relaid them and add some more.

So decals added, will seal them and then look at adding some dirt.





I've switched a couple of the decals the walk way on the top of the fuselage these are shown as going inside the intakes which do not have any marking like these, and the ones that where meant to go there looked to small.

I've also added the black strips to show the slits by the gun mounting, these where some black lines I had on a decal sheet in my spare stash plus the area in front of the gun nozzle.
