This one just landed in my collection from the FlyingMule:
JC Wings Grumman F-14A Tomcat USN VF-41 Black Aces AJ100, USS Enterprise Last F-14 Cruise 2001 Item: JCW-72-F14-002, Limited Edition: 800 Worldwide
The VF-41 Black Aces started using the F-14 Tomcat back in 1976. They have a long history dating back to 1945 when it was first commissioned flying the F4U Corsair. On August 19th, 1981, that Black Aces Tomcats shot-down two Libyan Su-22 Fitters over the Gulf of Sidra. This was the first ever combat incident involving US Tomcats. The squadron's final cruise with the F-14 took place in 2001 aboard the USS Enterprise. Upon return, VF-41 transitioned to the F/A-18F Super Hornet.
JC Wings provides an affordable F-14 tomcat in 1:72 scale and this one is a bit more weathered than the competitors.
I've already seen this a couple times but again I your photography really sells it. JC should be commended for their stellar effort on this one. They should consider applying this wash to the rest of their other models. It looks superb. My only gripe with it is that they forgot to include the gear doors for the MLG for the in flight position. It's not deal breaker to me as I can just cut out the stubs on the gear doors and convert to flight mode but I do hope they could rectify it in their subsequent releases.
I think it would also be a good idea to mention significant flaws(minor ones could be ignored) of the models your reviewing just so buyers could be informed especially the ones not familiar with this place and just came across it. It could have an impact on their decision
