1/72 Ertl Grumman F-14A Tomcat of VF-32 , Year of the Cat

One from the cheap seats. Ertl/AMT F-14A .After starting this I almost chucked it ! I think I’d rather have done the old Airfix or even Monogram kits. There is panel line detail but the fit is very poor, I think the Sword Cougar was an easier build. Decals are from an old Superscale sheet of VF-32 Swordsmen in the late 1980’s. I added a shot of post war Grumman Ironworks cats.

8 additional images. Click to enlarge.

  1. Turned out pretty good for what it is…..(old). 🙂

  2. That’s a nice collection of Cats Robert. Glad you finished it.

  3. Great herd of Kitties, Robert!

  4. Nice build. Where are the Phoenix’s?

  5. Great work on that thing, Robert. I’ve seen those in the box and they are not very appealing. You get an A for results and an A for sticking with it!

  6. I think you did a great job Robert. The cat looks nice. I like the group with all the Grumman planes together, super!

  7. I agree with everyone who commented above. Your “Cat” turned out very nice. Thanks again buddy for sharing your cats with us.

  8. Good addition to the group build, Robert.
