Tamiya 1/32 F-14A Tomcat of VF-84 after Gulf War (1), 1991
February 8, 2017 in Aviation
A small number of pics of my Tamiya 1/32 F-14 Tomcat which I still believe to one of the best looking of all the Grumman ‘Cats!
Please forgive the bombs but they were in the box – & I like bombs…..
Rather heavy weathering on top but apparently during the Gulf War these birds were filthy. A lot of the time on operations, there was no time to clean the airframes apart from a quick blast with the spray-gun and a wipe with a rag.
The last 3 pics are of the actual plane & thanks to the US Navy for these!
This is one big, heavy mother of a model kit and please forgive the gratuitious shots of my modelling man-cave!
