F-14D Tomcat Model

This book contains detailed instructions on building the F-14D Tomcat 1/48 scale model aircraft from Tamiya (Kit 61118). 

In addition to the kit’s instructions, the book also includes eduard's BIGED set 49209 which includes 48969 (engines), 49933 (interior), 48970 (exterior), FE934 (seatbelts), and EX624 (mask). Can you imagine merging all of these instructions? Well, I’ve done that for you and more. I take the model kit instructions from Tamiya along with the eduard AM sets and break them up into individual steps. 

The aftermarket steps are colored gray making them easy to skip if you just have the basic model. This book provides a little history of the D Model, a detailed list of tools that I used to build this model, along with a list of paints. The actual instruction section contains  1,535 steps and 270 plus figures over 300 pages that tell you what to dry fit, glue, and/or paint for each individual piece. Each step instruction shows the source (i.e., either Tamiya or AM) along with a block to mark that you completed the step. 

There are several pages of in-process photos with assembly tips and the final photos of my build for reference. This book is a great checklist to make your build go smoothly. Of course, you can feel free to use different tools, paint, weathering, etc. or even add your own diorama. I hope you find this book useful.
