Default Great Planes F-14 Modifications???

After patiently waiting for another one of these to show up on eBay, I finally managed to get one. Now before I begin construction, I'd like to know if any one has any suggestions on some good modifications for this model. I recall reading about a guy who built one with a modified wing for wing swing operation in one of the popular magazines, probably Model Airplane News. Has anyone here done this who could provide some insight on this project? I'd really like to build this cat to be all that it can be... Regards,

Richie

I was starting to build the tomcat before I had to move interstate, I posted it in the scratch build forum, I am considering starting another one, with the same mods I did to the last. feel free email me or PM me and we can chat.

BTW if you find the magazine with the details on swinging the wings, I remember it well it was the cover story of the Magazine, mioght have even been RCM , but was many years ago, I would love to get my hands on a copy to, and we do a build together!?

Thanks

The GP F-14 has been discontinued for several years. Not many of them around
