Dear all,

 

after my tamiya mossie, i thinked it was time for other stuff and after a jet in the form of a Mig-21, i was inspired by Tom Cooper and Farzad Bishop book "Iranian F-14 Tomcat Units in Combat" to make another jet in the form of an iranian Tomcat, probably, after the F-86, the most successful Jetfighter.

Unfortunately the only 1/32 solution of the Tomcat was the Tamiya kit from the early seventys, but after all the kit was not bad at all for his forty years.

Below some photos I take this afternoon with the help of central europe springtime sun, will try to do some better photos later.

Open for all comments ;)

 

Cordially

Serge

Excellent to see an air force we don't view often in the West. Well-done, too!

Awesome effort Serge. Well done. I can't believe what the IRIAF accomplished using this aircraft. Furthermore how they managed to keep this in operational service for so long with out any OEM support. Great job here.
