TSM Model – 1/200 Scale – TSMWTP004 “TOPGUN” Northrop Grumman F-14A VF-1 #203 Top Gun Movie “Cougar & Merlin” Scale Model Replica
Smashing its way on to cinema screens thirty years ago, Top Gun was an immediate box office sensation. The film features an elite flying school where the top pilots are sent to refine their flying skills and earn the legendary status of Top Gun.
Designed to carry the formidable long range AIM-54 Phoenix missile, the Grumman F-14 Tomcat was first flown on December 21st, 1970. Made famous by the Hollywood film Top Gun, the F-14 replaced the F-4 Phantom II as the US Navy’s primary maritime air superiority fighter. Its design includes a variable geometry wing that can sweep back for high speed supersonic intercepts and forward for improved positioning in air to air dogfights. Nicknamed “Bombcat,” the F-14 spent much of its late career in an air-to-ground role, carrying the Low Altitude Navigation and Targeting Infrared for Night (LANTIRN) system.
Diecast metal construction with some plastic components.
