This item is an injection-plastic jet aircraft model kit.

The Grumman F-14 Tomcat is a supersonic, twin-engine, two-seat, variable-sweep wing fighter aircraft. The Tomcat was developed for the United States Navy's Naval Fighter Experimental (VFX) program following the collapse of the F-111B project. The F-14 was the first of the American teen-series fighters, which were designed incorporating the experience of air combat against MiG fighters during the Vietnam War.

This specific model kit depicts the F-14A Tomcat variant. The F-14A was the initial two-seat, twin-engine, all-weather interceptor fighter variant for the U.S. Navy. It first flew on December 21, 1970. As a U.S. Navy fighter it fulfilled the dual roles of long range interceptor and air superiority fighter, and later bomber. Deployed from 1974 to 2006, it successfully employed a "swing wing", which offered variable sweep. The F-14A, which covers most of the early variants, was the most prolifically-produced variant of the Tomcat. 79 were exported to Iran before U.S.-Iranian relations began to deteriorate, and later took part in the Iran-Iraq War.

★The model features a moving depiction of the variable sweep wing. When it's swept fully forward, the model's wingspan is 408mm!

★Comes with three marking options including two of the high-visibility schemes employed on their aircraft by U.S. Navy Fighter Squadrons.

★Another marking alternative exists in the shape of an F-14A in the desert color scheme of the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force (IRIAF).

★Slide molding was employed for a highly realistic scale reproduction of the bubble canopy. Two figures are included to recreate seat pilot and RIO.

★A detailed cockpit depicts ejector seats and instrument panels. Assembly starts with cockpit and nose landing gear bay parts and uses them as a base.

★Separate parts are included to depict the fuel probe on the right of the nose extended or retracted, and with cover on or off.

★Assembly of the variable sweep wing sees spars attached to the fuselage first, and then the wings attached later, making for an easier painting job.

★Variable sweep wing moves smoothly between 20°(take-off, landing) to 68°(transonic, supersonic flight) and 75°(parked), thanks to two gear sections.

★2 sets of parts depict wing sealing plates and air bags in fully swept and forward positions. Parts are marked on their reverse to help distinguish them.

★Parts for Phoenix, Sidewinder and Sparrow missiles (4 each) and 2 drop tanks are included, and 3 configurations are shown. Decals recreate markings.

★Also packaged in the kit are parts to depict the engine afterburner nozzles in closed or fully open position - make your choice before building!

★High-quality decals are included to recreate markings with precision, and the kit even includes masking stickers to aid with painting the canopy.
