F-14A Tomcat – Black Knights Assembly kit Scale = 1:35th
Tamiya is proud to present the 1/32 Scale Grumman F-14A Tomcat “Black Knights”. The F-14A Tomcat is still one of the most efficient fighter bombers in the world. Since its first flight in 1970, the F-14 underwent various improvements. Tamiya now provides an updated version of its famous 1/32 scale replica of this big cat. New parts have been designed to replicate every antenna and sensor that has been fitted on the actual plane. You will also find parts to load your model with the latest weapons such as the GBU-16 and GBU-24 laser guided bombs as well as a AN/AAQ-14 targeting pod
The most outstanding aviation characteristic of the Tomcat has always been its variable geometry concept or swing wings, which are computer controlled. Wings can be angled a minimum of 20 degrees backwards for take-off, and 68 degrees for supersonic flight. This characteristic has been reproduced on the model and you can represent the configuration you like.

With this new role, the Tomcat was fitted with a new weapons arsenal. Since 1996, the F-14A employs the AN/AAQ-14 targeting pod, referred to as the LANTIRN. This targeting pod gives the F-14A precision bombing capability by procuring targets for nose mounted infrared laser or other laser guided weapons. The AN/AAQ-14 targeting pod contains a high resolution, forward looking infra-red sensor (which displays an infra-red image of the target to the pilot), a laser designator-rangefinder for precise delivery of laser-guided munitions, target trThe leader in hobby products around the world
