1:72 Scale Metal Die-Cast - Grumman F-14 Tomcat – Length: 10.3" Wingspan: 6/10.25”
The Grumman F-14 Tomcat is a supersonic, twin-engine, two-seat, variable geometry wing aircraft. During its active service in the United States Navy (1972-2006) the F-14 Tomcat was the Navy's primary air superiority fighter and tactical reconnaissance platform. It later performed precision bombing in close air support roles. It was developed after the collapse of the F-111B project, and was the first of the American teen-series fighters which were designed incorporating the experience of air combat in Vietnam against Migs. It entered service in 1972 with the Navy, replacing the F-4 Phantom II. It was later exported to the Imperial Iranian Air Force in 1976. It was retired from the U.S. Navy fleet on 22 September 2006.
This model of the F-14 has a landing gear that is fixed, the wheels actually roll very smoothly (so don't place it in a non-flat surface or it could roll away). It is designed to be displayed resting on its landing gear. The fuselage is all metal and really quite heavy. It comes loaded to the max with missiles.
The rudders and the elevators are movable so can be posed in very interesting positions when displaying.
The box is HUGE at 10 inches by 10 inches by 4 inches.
