[Kit Review] - Revell 1/144 - F-14A Tomcat -

Revell 1/144 F-14A Tomcat 1

This is the best revell kit ive so far purchased, the detail on this kit has really surprised me. Ive been collecting quite a few F-14 so i can build a really good model of my favorite American jet and of course what the VF-1 Valkyrie was based on.

The amount of paneling is quite incredible and the weapons, landing gear and cockpit are the best ive seen, so damn crisp.

Going to have to paint this one up in the classic Jolly Rogers marking which inspired the awesome Skull Leader marking.

Revell 1/144 F-14A Tomcat 2

Instructions are the most detailed ive seen as well, these instructions are almost a book with 3 different decal options for various Jolly Rogers. Tells me what the names of the armament is as well which i really don't have a clue what there called bu i always asume sidewinders are sidewinders when they might not be.

Going to have to buy another and custom up Shin's F-14 from Macross Zero.

Thats why i think the tomcat is awesome, this very fighter and sqaudron inspired the VF-1. Thiking of taking other US-Navy squadron mascots and making up some macross squadrons.

That's a great idea too. Imagination can really take us through a long journey!
