F-14D Super Tomcat VF-2 Bounty Hunter, BuAerNo.163894 NE100 CAG, USS Constellation CV-64, 2003. It's a very simple OOB build, I used everything that came in the box including the decals. Just to try out some new stuffs - color fading and weathering on a single colored surface. The stock ejection seats are really awkward, so I added on some details & adjusted the height which is higher - refer real photos when doing this. I've also added some details into the landing gears.

I use black, german grey, brown and blue as the pre-shading. I use Gunze 315 Gray FS16440 as the main color, weathered & washed with AK products, Tamiya enamel, oils and pigments. 

That's almost all for this build, I used some basic and simple way to build this plane and also try out some new methods which I never tried before.
