Well known subject, interesting scheme, and even in 1/72 still a large model.

Thanks Rob, yes similar size to F111.

that’s a pretty airplane, and a nicely finished model – great work!

Impressive build in any scale, but how on earth did you manage those perfectly painted ejection handles freehand?
Thanks Craig, yes freehand but not so perfect.

Ah – so you DO tackle subject other than RAAF!
Very nice Tomcat. I’ve always liked the Iranian color scheme, but it just never seemed proper on an air superiority aircraft – especially the Tomcat – and although I have a couple of F-14s, just can’t bring myself to do it! Now, if only they had purchased a few F-15E’s…
The Tomcat I’ve already finished (posted on iM) was the Fujimi offering. How did you find the build? It seemed to me that the fuselage sections were cut up very weirdly, and didn’t make for a very solid structure. In the end it build up really nice – as yours attests to!
Thanks Greg, yes RAAF is my main but not only interest, I don’t recall any major issues with the kit, Italeri do theirs a bit differently, not built yet

Good looking build.

Nice Tomcat, I didn’t realise they had sold some to Iran. I’m sure there’s a story behind that!
Tom Cleaver said on July 13, 2016
Sold to the Shah in 1977. You can’t find an F-14 in this country now because they’ve all been broken up so the Iranians can’t get replacement parts on the black market.
Thanks Richard, and Tom for your answer.

Nice job with the masking and the cammo, when will come the turn of my Cat, i will consider IIAF aircraft.

The Fujimi kit actually goes together quite well. Having built a couple of them. And you did a great job on yours on an airframe you don’t see too often in IIAF colors. It builds easier then the Hasegawa kit. Though most of the Tomcats have been dismantled for the very reason to prevent spare parts to filter to the IIAF. Not all. Thanks for sharing.

Certainly an interesting story and colour scheme for the Tomcat, very neat work as usual.
