Here are some images of Revells 1/32 scale Grumman F14-a Tomcat. This is a nice looking model when finished but it was a rough road getting there. Attaching the front section of the fuselage required a heavy use of Houdini dynamics and a fair bit of Squadron putty just to get it to fit and look right. The decals were so thin as to almost fall apart in water although I suspect that this was just a freak set that I just happened to get. I fixed the decal problem by simply applying a clear coat over the decal sheet although this required more cutting.
