This detail set from Aires features a pair of resin and photo etch exhaust nozzles - closed for the F-14A Tomcat from Tamiya.

The quality of the resin casting is flawless and bubble free.  The photo etch parts go inside the exhaust to enhance the interior detail.  There are instances when the Tomcat will have one open exhaust and one closed exhaust (during taxiing), so you need to decide what to do on your F-14.  Two open, two closed or one open and one closed are all correct, it just depends on what look you are after.

The exhausts are a critical area to detail on your jet and this set will permit you to give your model crisp excellent detail to the intakes and exhaust of your Tamiya F-14. 

You can purchase this and other fine resin detail items directly from Aires or from the many retailers that carry their products.
