  1. VFA-213 CAG jet

    I'll put the VFA-87 missle shoot jet on there. Waiting for end of cruise pictures from both to get a final version of markings. I'm sure I won't be the only one doing these markings. Cheers brian
  2. VFA-213 CAG jet

    Got the current Black Lion 201 done for a future Fightertown Decals sheet. Hoping that, the Tamiya Tomcat and Combined Test sheets will all be out during the summer. Brian
  3. 1/48 Hasegawa F-14A

    I found if you close the canopy you can't add the inner rails and have it fit. I cut off the rails just forward of the rear deck and just add the PE to the clear canopy or a scratch defroster like you made. So much easier than sanding the outside of the canopy.
  4. VX-4 Phantoms

    Sheet 48068 is white. I'm talking about a new sheet that has XF #5 on it. I've posted artwork previously but don't have it handy.
  5. VX-4 Phantoms

    Fightertown has #5 XF just like Darren's build above on the upcoming combined test sheet. Been sitting on the print pile for over a year now but will happen this summer. Brian
  6. GALAXY Model Decals experience

    I have very strong feelings on this. I can't say for sure but a lot of their stuff looks really, really, really close to Fightertown Decals...
  7. VX-4 Black Bunny BuNo 159853 - Stencils?

    No stencils at all on any of the F-14A Black Bunny jets. That's why there's no mention on them on the instructions and no top views. All the white stencils are for the F/A-18s on that sheet. -brian
  8. Question about color in weapon rails of the F-14

    Top picture looks like jet and forward fairing are 36320 and the rail is 36375. Bottom picture is of a 35440 jet and 36375 rail. Oftne the tails arent painted at thr at the same time as the jet so fading, weathering, batch of paint don't match. Brian
  9. 1/48th Aftermarket F-14B Wheels ? ? ?

    No difference between A/B/D standard wheels from 1977 until 2006. B/D started getting new wheels in 2004, and the fleet ended its life with a mix of standard and those late wheels. Brian
  10. F-14 Bombcats

    Bomb racks in the fleet started in 1991/92. All squadrons, including reserves made the transition into air to ground bombing. It wasn't until 1996 when the Lantirn came out did the Tomcat get precision strike capability. Pre 1995, it was dumb bombs only. In 95, VF-41/84 carried LGBs which were targeted by F/A-18s. 96 Tomcat got Lantirn and expanded into self sufficient PGM strike. 2001 B/D started getting JDAM
  11. F-14 Decal experts needed; what sheets for this VF-101 jet?

    Www.fightertowndecals.com it has sheets 48074 and newer on it ;) all the older stuff is available from sprue brothers and our distributors.
  12. F-14 Decal experts needed; what sheets for this VF-101 jet?

    Fightertown Decals VF-101 48074 is in stock and shipping from the website and most distributors. Brian

    Oops, correct that. Use the 1/72 decal Reaper on the 1/48 kit tail. Good catch. brian
  14. 1/48 Hasegawa F-14A

    Exhausts look amazing. Surprised how much work they took to fit. I've never had that issue. The are 'handed' tho. The left won't fit on the right and vice versa. Hate to suggest, your fit issues look like that's what caused it... keep El up the great work. These will look amazing when they're done! brian
  15. F-14 Decal experts needed; what sheets for this VF-101 jet?

    The only way to get that tail in the top picture that I know of is to use the Fightertown 1/72 sheet reaper on a 1/48 tail. And even that won't be exactly perfect. I haven't seen anyone make that specific size reaper in decals yet. I'd have to see a picture of the tail the washed up to give a better suggestion. You'd still use 1/48 markings for the rest of it. The GRIM REAPERS script is the same size moved from the wing glove to the tail. Brian
