Yeah, I'm sure the overall level of detail is better with the Tamiya kit. I've read the gear is exceptionally well done. The Revell kit has certainly challenged my skills; almost as much as the Monogram 1/48 EA-6, which was horribly warped, nothing fit, etc (the only thing that kept me going on that kit was the CMK cockpit set I had for it; that thing fit better than anything else).
I have CAM's Tomcat Alley set, number 32-119. It's for an F-14B, but I don't care. This Tomcat I'm building is for me, a personal tribute to the aircraft's departure from fleet service.
It's funny. After I discovered the warped wing and worked on it for awhile, I primed the airframe and then gave up. It sat in a closet for three months, but kept beckoning to me. I was actually going to trash it; it was halfway into the bag when I reconsidered. Now it's back on my bench and I'm excited about finishing it. Go figure...
Oh, and I suspect a Tamiya F-14 is in my future.
