Furball Decals FDS 4813: F-14 Tomcat Part V
This is another set produced in conjunction with Detail & Scale, and covers nine different aircraft. There are a variety of F-14 types on this one so you should be able to find something that meets your interest. So many Tomcat kits have been produced in 1/48 scale, that finding a kit will also not be that much of an issue.
These markings are mostly from the last ten years of F-14 operation during the wars in the middle east. That means a lot of TPS with a couple of overall light gull grey aircraft. Every one of these is either the CAG bird or squadron commander's plane.

The sheet contains full insignia and what few stencils there were for two planes. In concert with other Furball Aero-Design sheets, you will find a most complete placement guide that offers snippets of information on each aircraft. As it sometimes the case, the sheets are a bit too big for my scanner so some of the modex are not shown. These sheets have historically sold out relatively quickly, so I recommend picking yours up at the earliest opportunity.
