Hasegawa 1/72 F-14A Tomcat Atlantic Fleet Squadrons" "
|CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.|
Detailed 1/72 scale assembly model kit of the Grumman F-14 Tomcat, a two-seat, twin-engine maritime air superiority fighter of the United States NAVY. The most notable feature of the F-14 is its variable geometry-wings, which gave the type its incredible performance at both high and low speeds, and the ability to select the correct wing configuration at various speeds made the F-14 an outstanding air-superiority fighter as well as a supersonic fleet defense interceptor. The F-14 is considered by many as one of the finest fighter aircraft ever produced. The versatile F-14 was finally retired from the active U.S. Navy fleet on 22 September 2006, being replaced by the McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) F/A-18E/F Super Hornet. This Hasegawa 1/72 scale assembly kit features the F-14A Tomcat with decal markings for the following U.S. Navy Atlantic Fleet Squadrons: 1) Fighter Squadron 84 (VF-84, nicknamed "Jolly Rogers", currently inactive), 1988 USS Theodore Roosevelt CVN-71. 2) VF-84, 1986 USS Nimitz CVN-68. 3) Fighter Squadron 31 (VF-31, currently VFA-31, nicknamed "Tomcatters"), 1986 USS Forrestal CVN-59. 4) Fighter Squadron 102 (VF-102, currently VFA-102, nicknamed "Diamondbacks"), 1982 USS America CV-66.
