Default 1/72 Hasegawa F-14D VF-31 Sunset

After months of painstaking work and exhaustion, I finally finished this model. 72nd is not my usual scale, but I started this as a practice model for a couple of 48th scale Tomcats. It turned into a major project in itself.

I think Hasegawa Tomcats are generally demanding but with careful cleaning, dry fitting, and online research of other modelers' builds, it is not that bad. Certainly deviating from the instruction steps in a few places helps quite a bit.

I made many arbitrary decisions along the way, so careful eyes will notice a lot of inaccuracies with the colors, weathering and decals. Also, there are several issues I am not too happy with (places that I thought won't be visible are very visible ). As always, I am open to all your critiques.
