Caracal Models CD48168 - F-14 "Tomcat" - The Early Years
In this decal sheet, we go back to the first few years of the F-14 and provide markings for prototype and development Tomcats. The ill-fated first prototype (which crashed in its second flight), AIM-54 Phoenix development aircraft (complete with YAIM-54 missile markings!), Pacific Missile Test Center and Patuxent River-based development jets are all here.
As is the norm with our "Early Years" series, we spent many hours to study the subjects depicted on this sheet. Stencilling to build any one of the options is included. While the decals were designed to fit the Tamiya kit, they should work with any 1/48 scale F-14A kit in the market.
