From Fab Scale comes a really nice addition to the 1/48th Tamiya F-14, a 3D printed set of intakes that are in white.

Inside the nice package are left and right intakes still attached to eh printing sprues. The packaging is great as it is firm and makes sure there is no damage to the parts.

Prep is simple, I used sprue nippers to cut off the printing supports. I sanded the end and the parts were good. I test fit the parts into the kit and they slide with in well and the intake fans for the engine from the Tamiya kit fit like a glove. Since they are printed in white, they can be added after the rest of the intakes are painted the correct color for you kit or you could also paint them. They are seamless so there is no need for sanding like the kit parts which are in two pieces.

Definitely recommended as both an enhancement and a time saver when building the kit.

My thanks to Fab Scale for the opportunity to review this set.
