Superscale 48-1009: F-14B Tomcat

Units: VF-103




Scott Van Aken

This sheet commemorates the final cruise of VF-103 and their F-14B Tomcats. They have since converted to F-18Fs so the skull and crossbones continues in Naval Aviation traditions. The aircraft is painted in the tactical paint scheme of FS 36237, 36320, and 36375. The fins and nose doors and canopy area need to be painted black  and one should really paint the ventral strake as well. The instructions suggest painting the area behind the stripes white. While the sheet is scaled for the Hasegawa kit, it should be able to be used on other F-14B kits in 1/48 though a bit of adjustment may need to be made.
