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;

I have to echo the comments so far.  Your weathering and worn paint job on the Tomcat looks awesome!

Love that, a fine tribute to the best film of all time!

What? There was a Tomcat in Evil Dead II? ;)
