Trumpeter 1/32 scale Super Tomcat

Serving as the U.S. Navy’s first-line fighter from 1974 to 2006, Grumman’s Tomcat needs little introduction. Trumpeter’s first kit represents the D model Super Tomcat, the last production variant.

Trumpeter’s new 1/32 scale Super Tomcat comprises a super-big pile of parts. The moldings are impressive, showing fine recessed panel lines and restrained rivet detail. There’s a full complement of missiles: six AIM-54 Phoenix (“Buffalo”), two AIM-7 Sparrow, and two AIM-9L Sidewinders. Also provided are a pair of AIM-120 AMRAMM (not carried by the F-14D), an AN/AAQ-25 LANTIRN pod, a pair of laser-guided training rounds, and two fuel tanks.
