The F-14 Tomcat followed a history of “Cats” in the military. The F4F Wildcat and the F6F Hellcat that fought in the skies years before the Tomcat ever bit the air. In the late 1960s, the US Navy dropped its TFX program, and decided to focus on an aircraft dedicated to fleet defence. Grumman had already begun developing the F-14, and was definitely headed for a “Cat” designation. The person responsible for this project was Admiral Tom Conolly, Deputy Chief, Naval Operations for Air. The aircraft was dubbed “Toms Cat” long before the official name of “Tomcat” was ever adopted.Product InformationContains over 100 parts including 2 clear parts for canopy & windscreen, detailed fuselage & wing w/accurate design and detailed gear cabin & cockpit.Dimensions: Length:264.82 mm Wingspan: 155.5/271.35mm
