Historical Context:
The Grumman F-14 Tomcat served as the United States Navy’s primary maritime air superiority fighter, fleet defense interceptor, and tactical reconnaissance platform from 1974 to 2006. Beginning its service in September 1974, the F-14 replaced the F-4 Phantom II, marking its operational debut with squadrons VF-1 Wolfpack and VF-2 Bounty Hunters aboard the USS Enterprise. It played a critical role in the American withdrawal from Saigon. The F-14D Super Tomcat, delivered first in 1991, was the final and most advanced variant, featuring improved engines, avionics, and other systems to enhance its capabilities. Despite its phased replacement, the F-14D remains a symbol of American naval aviation prowess.

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.
