Superscale 48-1022: F-14B Tomcat

Units: VF-103




Scott Van Aken

The last Tomcat scheme carried by VF-103 is provided on this sheet. These markings were worn during the recent invasion of Iraq and the aircraft shows mission markings on either side of the nose. There needs to be some painting done for this one in terms of the black fins and black anti-glare panels. Though the ventral strakes are provided decals, separate 'vf-103' decals are given in case you wish to paint this area as well.

The recommended kit is the Hasegawa F-14B. There is also an F-14B done by Italeri in this scale, but it has not gotten very good press. The sheet includes stencils, intake walkways, and an excellent placement guide.
