1/48 scale for  Hasegawa F-14 kits

As you all realize, most aircraft go through various modifications and updates throughout their lives. This is just as true of the Tomcat as it is other types. Model makers are in a bit of a quandary when it comes to these things as often they are not as knowledgeable as we'd like, so often miss details or choose a variant to kit that not the version we want to do.

This set is to provide an early beaver-tail for the Hasegawa kit, which has the later version without the antenna fairings on the side. It is a basic replacement part and is ready to install. The set also includes a gun gas panel with vents that may or may not be part of your kit, depending on when you bought it. This panel is available separately as SBA-126 if that is all you need.
