     We study a class of 4D N = 1 supersymmetric GUT-type models in the framework of the Beasley-Heckman-Vafa theory (BHV for short). We first review general results on the 12'dimensional F-theory, its compactification to lower space time dimensions and stringy dualities in particular in 4 dimensions where live the minimal supersymmetric standard mode MSSM. We also study 4D quiver gauge theories in F- theory set up and engineer a class of effective supersymmetric gauge theory by using intersecting 7-branes wrapping special 4-cycles in F-theory on local elliptic CY4s. Other issues are also discussed.
