Okay it is this simple lets vote for our favorite Tomcat scheme ever before they pull the plug on this one.

I am going to have to think long and hard on my choice. There several I like that for this one!

VF-142 Gray over white, as in the original boxing of the 1/48 Monogram F-14A.

Thats the one I am doing now. Only in pre markings to that, when still AJ before the switch of airwing in 1974 or 75.

That's mine, right there. :D The lo-viz reaper on the tail just fits the bird perfectly. Plus it's the last Tomcat I ever saw fly.

I'm going to go with lo-vis VF-2 from Desert Storm when they were assigned to the Ranger. They still looked "colorful", just in gray. A close second is the scheme I'm trying to get done before the end of June. VF-33 went lo-vis but with full markings right before they were disestablished. They had black tails with a gray lightning bolt/star and a black outlined lightning bolt on the forward fuselage. To my knowledge, no has done this scheme before in decal form. It's a cool scheme, too.

Ya know, after some deep thought on the subject, I have to say VF-111 in full color. I thought about VF-84 Jolly Rogers ala "The Final Countdown" and VF-41 from the Gulf of Sidra Incident (see my son's recent build) but my heart really likes the sunburst of VF-111.

There's my vote!
