Tamiya to Release New 1/48 F-14D Tomcat Model Kit

Tamiya has announced the upcoming release of a new F-14D Tomcat model kit in 1/48 scale.

The kit (61118) appears to be based off the company’s new tool F-14A kit (61114) which was released in 2016. It is said to be a faithful reproduction of the machine and reportedly includes movable wings and a number of weapon/reconnaissance options, including laser and GPS-guided bombs and late stage air-to-air missiles, as well as lantern, jamming and reconnaissance camera pods. Three marking options will also be included representing machines from VF-213 “Black Lions,” VF-101 “Grim Reapers” and VF-2 “Bounty Hunters.”

The kit is currently slated for release on August 4. Click below to check out additional images.
