If its a fiddles green f14 it would come out like this. Its not so well made, as a firsttimer, but it would give you an idea....

Don't get too frustrated though. The Fiddlersgreen F-14 is at the top of the list of models that need a redesign.

There is only one way to connect this fuselage together.
Like you see in the first photo posted by Mexx,
you must wrinkle/bend/distort the underside of the fuselage between the intake ports.
I tried to build this one, I didn't like the way it went together...I got frustrated and tossed it.

The F-14 is the only Fiddlersgreen model that I've been unable to build. And we calculated once that I built over 1000 of them in the 5 years that I had a desk job that let me build.
