Looking for 72nd F-14A+ Desert Storm decals


Recommended Posts

Hi folks.

What is available out there for a DS TARPS Tomcat+? I'm particularly interested in a Bedevilers bird, but any others would be great too.

I haven't seen much out there in 1/72. Maybe I'm just looking at the wrong online stores?

Unfortunately no aftermarket ones. Superscale made several sheets in 1/72 for DS but they were all A models and were the fancy CAG schemes.

I really wish more USN/USMC DS storms decals were made (and no more CAG birds...)

thanks for the headsup guys. I'll be o the lookout for the Repliscale sheet

I wonder why the shortage of 72nd aftermarket decals

Would you like mine? PM me and we can talk specifics

hi Rkic: I have the decals from this Fujimi kit:

They are for a F-14+ from the Saratoga:

As you can see Fujimi instructions stats that the SerNo 161430 wa a TARPS capable aircraft. There is a bit of confussion here, as the site Home of M.A.T.S don,t quote it as a TARPS capable(it should have an upwards green arrow, according to the simbology of the autor):

But, on the other hand Tomcat Alley, another famous reference website about the F-14, quotes this a/c as TARPS capable:

If anybody could confirm wich any of these two extents...

Anyhow, those decals are yours if you are interested.

Cheers.

Something like this?

Hoops what is this from?

Superscale sheet 72-628 has DS VF-74 markings for the CO F-14B jet. Google search comes up with the sheet pretty easy.

I stand corrected, I forgot about that one (even have it myself). At least I got the CO only part right in my post.

You are right Hoops. Exactly like that, only that the aircraft depicted is the AA212 instead of AA210. BTW, acording to Tomcat Alley site the aircraft that you show is TARPS capable too.

Gentlemen,

I had done the artwork and marking guides for that up a couple of years ago, and they're with Mark Bilas from Wolfpak decals for possible inclusion in a future sheet. I'd kicked around the idea of doing my own decal line around the same time, but little kids at home and a very demanding day job ruled out that possiblity.

I've still got a lot of other artwork that hasn't been released by Wolfpak yet or otherwise, hopefully they'll make their way onto a 1/72 scale sheet sometime.

Cheers,

-Hoops
