Key Features:

  • Historical Significance: The F-14 Tomcat, a two-seat, twin-engine, variable-sweep wing supersonic fighter, played a pivotal role as the main carrier-based air superiority fighter of the U.S. Navy. It first flew on December 21, 1970, and served as the primary fleet air defense interception and tactical reconnaissance platform from 1976 to 2006.
  • Versatile Capabilities: Originally developed to replace the discontinued F-111B, the F-14 absorbed valuable experience from combatting MiG fighters during the Vietnam War. Equipped with the Blue Shield night-time infrared navigation targeting pod, it excelled in low-altitude attack missions.
  • USS Enterprise Deployment: The F-14 first served on the USS Enterprise aircraft carrier in 1974, succeeding the F-4 Phantom II fighter jet. The USS Navy accepted 478 F-14As, with an additional 79 delivered to the Kingdom of Iran. Notably, the 80th F-14A built for Iran was later delivered to the U.S. Navy.

Understanding Scale

The scale of a model is its size as a proportion to the real-life item. For instance, a 1:18 scale model means that every 1 unit of measurement on the model equals 18 units on the real item. If you divide the real item's size by 18, you'd get the size of the 1:18 model. Please note that models can vary slightly in size, as not all real-life items, like cars or planes, have the same dimensions.
