F-14A Tomcat VF-41 august 1981

December 28, 2017 · in Aviation · · 21 · 2.4K


I choose to represent this plane because when the old 1/48 Monogram appear, a french modeler dicided to publish this plane in "Fana de l'aviation". I read this book a lot of time since 1982 and i am very interesting with this engagement.

This year is the year with the Tamiya kit and i decide to have my Tomcat too. But no 1/48 in my workbench... just the model. The decals come from Academy kit and the pilots from Fujimi. The base is home made.

I hope it ll please you

  1. This would have been a great one to build in the "Year of the Cat" Group build. Looks Great !

  2. Nice Tomcat Eric, looks good.

  3. Great Tomcat build and fantastic base ! one real minor note, the aircraft director should have a flight deck vest [float coat]on

  4. Nicely done, them 'cats. πŸ™‚

  5. Great work, Eric!

  6. Very well done Eric, really like your home made base.

  7. Like Louis said, it would have a great addition to The Year of the Cat group build. I really like the way you've presented it, difficult to realise the scale.

    • Hi George, ye, you are right, i dont saw at time the group build, Sorry for this. I hope to be more attentive next year and post in the right group build πŸ™‚

      Thank you again for your comment,

  8. Beautiful work on your Tomcat, Eric! Hard to believe it's 1/72 scale! Your carrier deck base is really well-done, too.

  9. Very nice result there. As said above, hard to believe it's 1/72.

  10. Well done Tomcat! Looks great.
