Grumman F-14 Tomcat History:

The Grumman F-14 Tomcat is an American supersonic, twin-engine, two-seat, twin-tail, variable-sweep wing fighter aircraft. The Tomcat was developed for the United States Navy’s Naval Fighter Experimental (VFX) program after the collapse of the F-111B project. The F-14 was the first of the American Teen Series fighters, which were designed incorporating air combat experience against MiG fighters during the Vietnam War.

The F-14 first flew on 21 December 1970 and made its first deployment in 1974 with the U.S. Navy aboard USS Enterprise (CVN-65), replacing the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II. The F-14 served as the U.S. Navy’s primary maritime air superiority fighter, fleet defense interceptor, and tactical aerial reconnaissance platform into the 2000s. The Low Altitude Navigation and Targeting Infrared for Night (LANTIRN) pod system was added in the 1990s and the Tomcat began performing precision ground-attack missions.

In the 1980s, F-14s were used as land-based interceptors by the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force during the Iran–Iraq War, where they saw combat against Iraqi warplanes. Iranian F-14s reportedly shot down at least 160 Iraqi aircraft during the war, while only 12 to 16 Tomcats were lost; at least half of these losses were due to accidents.

The Tomcat was retired by U.S. Navy on 22 September 2006, having been supplanted by the Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornet. The F-14 remains in service with Iran’s air force, having been exported to Iran under the Pahlavi regime in 1976. In November 2015, reports emerged of Iranian F-14s flying escort for Russian Tupolev Tu-95, Tu-160, and Tu-22M bombers on air strikes in Syria.

    One of the finest aircraft of its day! So glad one exists in brick form. Assembles well and fun to put together. This plane is a big boi and magnificent to behold. A bit of advice though, parts pop off on a regular basis, If you like handling it like i do, get some glue for those easily popping off parts, ie; nose, air intakes, side winders, etc. This is one bird too irresistible to just leave sitting. Excellent design.

    My son was SO excited to finally get this aircraft! He had it built in 2 days and was very excited with the outcome. He has shown it off! He found it easy to build and he loves the realistic features.

    This arrived on TopGun Day and was the perfect present for my boyfriend. He is not only impressed with the pieces but the assembly as well. Being that TopGun is his favorite movie and inspired his military career there really was no better gift and this piece is something he loves showing off.

    This is a stellar build and a fun time to build. The set is very detailed in a fun homage to the Top Gun movie. The details are really top notch and I appreciate not having to place stickers or decals! I really enjoyed the build and challenge. All the directions are presented well, and this is an easy build for an adult, moderate challenge for teens, but will certainly take some patience and skill for anyone under 10. It makes a great display piece fo any fan!

    My son and I loved building this model! F-14 was my favorite growing up! Perfect for our collection!

    After saving up his birthday money to purchase this jet, my son was so excited to have completed the build with a little help from his dad who is also a Top Gun, F-14, all around jet super fan, and our son follows right in his footsteps!!! Thank you Warbricks for such a fine product and for making our son so happy!!!

    This was one of my most favorite builds ever. the detailing of this aircraft is unmatched. it looks so authentic. i will be purchasing future sets from Warbricks and Cobi.

  9. Ambarish (verified owner)

    It is a much more involved build than the other cobi planes. I recently built the F-15 and this was much more involved than the F-15 set.

    Looks amazing! Can’t wait to give it to my son on Christmas! Thank you War Bricks! Love doing business with y’all!

    Thank you so much for the aircraft, absolutely in love with it. You shipping was great and the ordering process was smooth definitely looking to buy more from yall!

    First time trying out Cobi since I have an interest in militaria. Pleasant build, I definitely appreciate all decals being printed and not having to mess with stickers. For adults this won’t be too difficult of a build. Looks very nice after everything’s put together!

    Ordering was straight forward, and shipping was very reasonable, especially considering I ordered right before (or was it on?) a federal holiday and I’m on the East Coast, far from Montana.
