Superscale 32-240: F-14A Tomcat

Units: VF-41




Scott Van Aken

Much to my surprise, this month's batch of Superscale sheets did include 1/32 sheets with a note that this is the final run for this scale. It is nice to be wrong for a change and we get the chance for a few more sheets in this and 1/72 scale.

This particular sheet is for a VF-41 Tomcat from the USS Theodore Roosevelt. It is in overall 36320 with a 36118 canopy area and red fin tips. The leading edges of the wing are in unpainted metal. As this is marked as a 'Strikecat' you'll have to have some bomb racks for the centerline and I'm sure this one had the TV camera mount.

The recommended kit is the Tamiya F-14A, but I see no reason why you couldn't use the Revell kit if that is an option for you.

Full stencils and insignia provided along with an excellent placement guide.
