Calibre Wings 1:72 Aircraft CA72DB01
Grumman F-14 Tomcat Diecast Model
Ocean Low Pass Diorama Base

Grumman F-14 Tomcat   10.25"   10.75"

This painted resin display base is designed for the Calibre Wings 1:72 F-14 Tomcat model. The model itself sits atop a clear acrylic post while separate pieces of cotton wool can be shaped and positioned to convincingly represent water spray being kicked up by the aircraft.

Please note: This stand is produced by Calibre Wings for their own 1:72 F-14s and was not designed to fit similar models from other manufacturers. The stand neck has a white plastic cap that supports the model between the engine tunnels and keys into the centerline slots provided for the AIM-7 missiles. This piece will not immediatly fit a Century Wings, JC Wings or Hobby Master F-14 without modification. For the more adventurous collector, it can quite easily be sanded down or carved with a sharp craft knife to correctly fit the profile of these other models while still fitting a Calibre Wings model.

Grumman F-14 Tomcat

Designed to carry the formidable long range AIM-54 Phoenix missile, the Grumman F-14 Tomcat was first flown on December 21st, 1970. Made famous by the Hollywood film Top Gun, the F-14 replaced the F-4 Phantom II as the US Navy's primary maritime air superiority fighter. Its design includes a variable geometry wing that can sweep back for high speed supersonic intercepts and forward for improved positioning in air to air dogfights. Nicknamed "Bombcat," the F-14 spent much of its late career in an air-to-ground role, carrying the Low Altitude Navigation and Targeting Infrared for Night (LANTIRN) system.
