Turn based persistent.sfs file swapping, but we're getting a little off-topic. :)

That looks like you have a very nice tomcat coming along. What are you using for the wing gloves?(the wing parts that don't swing)

Cool, looks great!  That camo mod really emphasizes the smooth lines. 

We've built very similar f-14s:

The parts definitely dictate the build.

I just invented a new bearing type!

rQzmCRN.png

Using the collide - o -scope I figured out that two medium retractable landing gears joined together make a fantastic axle, autostrutting themselves. They have a high impact tolerance and are held in place by vernor engines, also with a high impact tolerance. I haven't installed VOID in 1.3 yet so I can't be sure how stable the engine speed is but it looks promising! By leaving a bit of a gap in between, you can create a (thrust) bearing halfway.
The smaller landing gear is less ideal, the larger one is promising and the largest one is unusable, well maybe as a camshaft.

So now we have a heavy duty solution to fill the gap between landing gears/MK1 crew cabin and the light antenna/thermometer and derivatives. The medium landing gear is 750kg lighter than the MK1 crew cabin and fits inside a MK1 structural fuselage with ease. I've already started work on building a transmission and clutch with them!

@Azimech That seems awsome! 

My question though, you said it would fill the gap between large gear bearings and antenna bearings, but isn't that where the stayputnik bearings are? (fairing and structural tube)

Yep, forgot about that one.
