Default HM F-14 USN VF-84 Jolly Roger Operation Desert Storm, HA5212

This one just landed in my collection from the Flyingmule:

Hobby Master
Grumman F-14A Tomcat
USN VF-84 Jolly Rogers
AJ201, USS Theordore Roosevelt
Operation Desert Storm 1991
Item: HA5212

Another beautiful Jolly Roger F-14 to join my fleet. Compared to the rest of the Jolly Rogers in my collection, this one is low-vis. I know Century Wings also made one a while ago (CW000177) similar to this release but with the black tail. Absolutely stunning, here are some photos:

Great looking photos! How is the overall quality on this low viz F-14? Tampo printing & paint quality? Looks like HM keeps improving on newer releases. I do see the infamous gap on the front weapons pallet, but overall looks great. The front windshield looks nice and tight.

thanks for pics Michael! not a fan of low-vis, but this is excellent. so will try and fit one in. as for gap, the pins are slightly too thick. (can sand them down a fraction). so don't quite go all way in. but I have seen pics with no gaps!!

i was pretty disappointed in the low viz vf-31 bird. while your photos do look very nice, i think my experience with that is enough to keep me off this one.
