Front Sheet

A brief history on the F-14. The Grumman F-14 Tomcat is a fourth-generation, supersonic, twinjet, two-seat, wing fighter. 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. The F-14 was retired from the United States Navy on September 22, 2006.

Furball Aero-Designs Tomcats sheet is for the Hasegawa 1/48 F-14 A/B’s Tomcats. This sheet has 11 different aircraft. The Decals included cover late Cold war and early Gulf war era aircraft. Inside the large Ziploc style bag, there are 2 black, white and grey sheets with profiles for 11 aircraft and includes respective FS colors and decal placement. The included 7 full size color printed instruction sheets cover all wing markings and stencil data; page 7 will cover arrestor hook and ejection seat stenciling. The decals are printed by Cartograf which guarantee a high quality and accurate depiction of marked aircraft.

There are marking included for the following aircraft:

  • F-14A (PLUS) 163223, VF-24, CVW-9, 1991
  • F-14A 160667, VF-51, CVW-15, 1989
  • F-14B 162925, VF-74, CVW-17, 1992
  • F-14A 160414, VF-84, CVW-8, 1984
  • F-14A 162695 (TARPS), VF-102, CVW-1, 1993
  • F-14B UPGRADE 162916, VF-102, CVW-1, 1998
  • F-14B 162926, VF-142, CVW-7, 1994
  • F-14A (PLUS), VF-143, CVW-7, 1991
  • F-14A 159002, VF-191, CVW-19, 1987

  • F-14A 161294 , VF-213, CVW-11, 1991

These sheets are highly recommended. These Decals will surely be a great addition to any F-14 builder’s inventory. My thanks to Furball Aero-Design and IPMS/USA for the sample to review.
