Tamiya makes them in 1/32 if you feel particularly rich. If you're referring to the 1/72, those are reboxings of Italeri's kits.Originally Posted by Zplus
If you're lucky, you might be able to buy the Fujimi 1/72 Tomcat with Iranian AF markings. :-D

As I am typing this, there is a 1/72 F-14 Tomcat model sitting on top of my CPU. I like the one with a Calico Jack best!
, For this plane, i love the front view most , just like a bird with it winds wide spread.
That one, I got a model still not assemble yet. Must go down n see see if got 1/32 one for me or not, not for macross of course. Normal F-14 Tomcat plane.Originally Posted by Del_CtrlnoAlt
Only Sony device mostly, haha!
Thus I assume this legendary missile would go down with the legendary carrier interceptor aircraft?Originally Posted by Zplus
RSAF shld have bought the F14 as well the last time... Including the technology for Phoneix missiles.... IF the US Military agrees....

Hehe... then kenna stuck with no maintenance since F-14 retires......Just look at Iranian F-14s... all not flyable already...Originally Posted by jsbn
Its a matter of time before F-15 goes the same way (once F-22 Raptors are in full production and operation)...
IRIAF Tomcats are still airworthy lah, go read AFM magazine for information on them.Originally Posted by Zplus
Oops.. my bad... yeah.. estimated only 20 of the original 79 are left...Originally Posted by G-man
Yup.. same here.. not to forget the show Top Gun too...Originally Posted by Del_CtrlnoAlt
haiz.. sad to hear it..buta with a steep maintenance price tag, it gota go sooner or later..
Top gun is on hbo now...
Oh no more top gun! I like F-14s too. Anyone have a video of it in real action? (Not top gun movie!) Better still can see the wings sweeping back.
And who just brought a ton of F15sOriginally Posted by Zplus
wah my first model plane when I was young is F14! now no more liao

The F-22 is meant to replace the F-15C not the F-15E "mudhen"Originally Posted by Zplus
I think they'll live on as Macross Valkyrie fighters next time
Always thot they were too big and that the Hornets and Falcons looked prettier. Still its a legendary fighter with legendary missiles that kept the world's oceans' peace.
Hmmm... knowing the USAF/USN history....Originally Posted by Klose
F-15A = Fighter
F-15B = Trainer
F-15C = Fighter
F-15D = Trainer
... then realise they need to get some badly needed fighter bombers and the F-16's load is limited...
F-15E = Fighter-Bomber.....
F-14A = Fighter/Interceptor
F-14B = Upgrade
F-14C = Upgrade
... then realised that they retired the A-7 and A-6 and the limited early Hornets...
F-14D = Fighter-Bomber
So... wont be surprised if the F-22 was asked to move some mud in the near future....
I am sure its a dreadful feeling to be the opposite side of the Tomcat...Originally Posted by eel
Haven't you heard the old Strategic Air Command saying, "Fighter pilots make movies, strike pilots make history!"Originally Posted by Zplus
ur right. IIRC, the phoneix missile system was created specifically for the F14 and fleet defense purposes - back in the bad old days where the USN was afraid of a massive bomber/missile attack by the russians on their carrier fleet.Originally Posted by jsbn
