Fujimi 1/72 F-14A Tomcat

OOB  other than Custom printed decals, and safety pin for the AoA probe. Paint from Ammo MIG's Modern US Navy Paint set. 

The kit started of as a build for local group build here, but I passed the deadline.

 

Depicting "Voodoo 1" from the well known "documentary" of the most dramatic air-air engagement in post-vietnam war US Navy history.

Above the indian ocean, in 1986, Voodoo 1 was able to defend against 6 enemy migs and even score a kill despite being damaged from enemy gun fire.

The pilot, who was a top graduate from the Navy Fighter Weapons School prior to the engagement, will ultimately reach the rank of admiral as the US Pacific Fleet Commander later in his career.

 

A deep review of the engagement by The Operations Room channel on YouTube can be seen here;
