Finally, after a coat of future, I applied the decals; they went on easily. However, the CAM decals are truly made for the Tamiya kit and this caused a few problem areas. You have to be careful while fitting the decals to the dorsal fins. Also, the stripes on the front fuselage are not cut at the exact same angle as the jet intakes. Nonetheless, these problems were easy enough to overcome.

 

The Two Bobs sparrow and sidewinder missle decals are excellent!

It looks almost complete, but there is a lot of work left to do…

I used pastel chalk to create the dirt and scrape marks on the swing wings. Did I over do it?

f-14 in progress I had to see what it looked like with the ejection seats installed!

Another look.

I made a mistake with the panel line-wash on the bottom of the plane. Nothing I can't fix. It's just frustrating because it's a step backwards. I'll have an update explaining the mistake and how to repair it soon.
