This is a very nice kit of the F-14 Tomcat. Fit is excellent, with no problems encountered. I like the offering of 2 different styles of engine nozzels, 1 open set 1 closed set. Normally when on the ground with the engines shut down one nozzle will be open and one closed. It is nice to have this option. The decals are nice and very colorful , Cockpit detail is good, and can be made better with a PE cockpit detail set. The seats are nicely detailed and with dry brushing and detail painting look very good. Or you can replace them with Resin ones. Landing gear detail is nice,but I replaced mine with the SAC white metal set, as SAC used the gear from my kit for the masters to produce the metal set.I think this is a better model of the Tomcat than the Revell kit although it is a little more expensive it offers more details, IE: 2 sets of nozzels,the radar and it has recessed panel and rivet details instead of Revell's raised. I would recommend this kit.
