    There's no top decal because the part on the Tamiya kit is raised and not flush, and has the 4 knobs and is meant to be painted. I would have had to cut out the knobs for a decal or printed knobs and you'd have to cut them off the kit. It didn't make sense to do it as a decal. Same with the sides of the PTID frame. Brian

    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    Not at all. Read into it my love and appreciation for the Hasegawa kit. For its time. And how those details and not perfect accuracy never affected my joy of building it. But yet they did exist and I never cried that the kit was unbuildable because of it. And strakes are too long in length, too short in height and placed incorrectly on the body. Brian

    AMK 1/48 F-14!!!

    If you really want to get into accuracy discussions of the Hasegawa Tomcat, there a lot of issues. Depends how detail oriented and precise you want to get.... tails are too tall and narrow, strakes are too long and short and don't have the correct placement, exhaust fairings are mis-shaped, wing flaps are incorrectly molded for dropped flaps, slats are too narrow, TVSU is undersized (A/B) IRST (D) has a funky shape, tailhook is too long and narrow, intakes are squared off, front gear doors are too short... the list goes on. But does any of that matter? Unless you need your model to be a perfect 1:1 replica, probably not. It looks like a Tomcat and for a long time was the best thing out there. I don't think you can base accuracy off another model to compare. I believe the AMK kit will be great and I stopped paying attention to the arguments over an old test shot a long time ago. When it comes out, it'll be what it is. I, and a lot of other people will buy it. Maybe it isn't a perfect 1:1 reduction, maybe it is. It's a model and it looks as good or better than what's out there. We all have our quest for the perfect model, and in recent times, kits have gotten closer and closer to that mark. Sometimes to me, that's a joy in modeling - working to bring a perfect scale reproduction. I've never gotten there and probably never will, but with kits like this, I'm getting closer. I love the Tamiya kit, and I'm betting I'll love the AMK kit. Just like for the last 25yrs I loved the Hasegawa kit. โœŒ๏ธ

    US navy walking fighter pilots by reedoak

    The patches and helmet markings are on every sheet. And the F-14 Data sheets have a collection of patches. We've done a bunch of 1/32 but they are long sold out. I have all the artwork so it's easy to put together a sheet of patches/helmet markings in any scale. Brian

    US navy walking fighter pilots by reedoak

    Love these! If you need Navy squadron patches, we've been doing them since day one of Fightertown Decals and have almost every F-14 and a lot of F/A-18A-G patches done... we did nametags, squadron patches, type triangles, US flags, TOPGUN/NSAWC... Add to seated pilots, we really need HGU-55/68 helmets and MBU-12/20 Oxygen masks. I have both of the real things... brian.

    US Navy terminology question.

    We always used scuttlebutt = gouge or rumors. Some of the best times were at the dirty shirt for midrats - sliders, rollers, autodog and drinking bug juice.

    F-14 Expanded Chaff Adapter - Photos?

    Great thread. Could have used this a few months again when I was looking for more details to add to the new Tomcat Data and Weapons sheet ...๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ˜œ. Would've been so easy to add empty and full ECA patterns on the sheet! brian

    10/16 Update. As as of today, all orders have been filled and shipped. Including the one that came in 2min ago ๐Ÿ˜‰ thanks for the patience. I hope you all enjoy the sheets as much as I do putting them out. Thinking about hosting a group build on the Fightertown Decals Facebook page for all 3 Tomcats At War sheets. Any model would be welcome as long as 48083, 48085, 48086 were used. Maybe something along the lines of free decals or models as prizes and maybe even having it hand delivered ๐Ÿ˜‰ thanks all! Brian
