Lion 204 This is the Aircraft that made the Last Combat trap on the Last Combat Mission. The actual aircraft now resides in the Museum of Naval Aviation in Pensacola FL.

This is Tamiya's kit with Eduard PE and one GBU38, DEF Wheels, Fightertown Decals from the Lion's Last Roar sheet and Quickboost Seats. It's painted with Model Master Enamel.

Some nice cats posted. I finally took some better pictures of my completed builds. Here's the 1/72 HobbyBoss F-14A from VF-142, from around 1977. Kit decals.

And next one, Mistercraft (Italeri) F-14A, VF-84, 1980, sometime before loss of airframe. Decals are from an Italeri boxing, as I've had some trouble with kit decals. Shame really, as I wanted an VF-111 Tomcat on my shelf.

And here's my final entry in this great Group Build. Hasegawa F-14B in 1/72, VF-103 from 2001. Dream model decals. Save for the misprint (white shifted), some errors in design (golden wrench award missing, no carrier name in black, too thick rescue arrows) they behaved really well.
