Satya's blog - An F-14 Tomcat from Guillow

Jul 18 2005 08:10 An F-14 Tomcat from Guillow
I figured an F-14 Tomcat balsa model might be fun. I've built a balsa wood P51 Mustang before. This one is smaller and won't be able to fly (who puts jet engines in a wooden model?). The smaller scale means I have to be more careful as there is less room for error.

This model can be built as shown on the box, or covered with tissue and painted to resemble the real thing.

Like all the Guillow kits, this one comes with these wood templates. Many of the parts are stamped on the templates but some of the small ones are just drawn on. You have to cut them yourself.
