Variable geometry wing models are always fun! The F-14 Tomcat should make for a few interesting variations particularly at this scale.
Twin Motor Cluster for sure are going to be a different challange and will likely have to be handled completely differently then we did with the F-15 Eagle earlier. To be sure After looking further into this models Wide setting motor spacing Ducting to the cockpit core is out. We'll have to resort to an old stand-by "Intake Duct" recovery ejection. Our little model does not offer Intake openings straight from the box we'll have to alter a number of part but the more I look at it the more like it is the only workable solution.
Flight mode for our F-14 will be with the wing in the swept back postions. I'm hoping I will be able to retain the movable pivot option for display but if necessary will fix the wings swept back. our cardboard cutout will reflect this decision. side view didn't make the photo Sorry I'll include it when I do the drawing later.
First tape up with a couple dummy cut pieces of T2+ in the motor openings seem to suggest our idea "could work". Time to start removing interior and exterior plastic to make room for your shockline, motor tubes and ejection ducts.
