So, you want to build an F-14 Bombcat in 1/72nd scale and you look at the kit and the weapons look plain. You look at the real items and they have markings all over them. What to do, what to do. The fine people at Furball have you covered in spades with the issue of set 72-006 which includes markings for 84 different things that go under the wings. Inside the set, you get a wonderful, large decals sheet in excellent register printed by Cartograf. The remaining three pages are detailed marking and painting instructions for both active and inert weapons. All paint colors are denoted in FS format. Alternate colors are also mentioned in notes for each weapon. All the instructions are also in color which is a great help.
There are decals for each of the weapons listed below.
What a great set. How detailed is it? For example, the GBU-16 have 17 separate decals, the AIM-9M has nine decals and the AIM-54 Phoenix, a whopping 33 decals each. This adds phenomenal detail to what is a plain looking part straight out of the kit.
Another great point about this set is that many of the weapon markings included are not necessarily specific to the F-14. Most of the laser guided bombs and missiles are used on other aircraft making this sheet even more useful adding detail to other kits.
Highly recommended. This set will not only upgrade an F-14 Bombcat but will do other planes weapons as well and there is enough for multiple uses.
My thanks to Furball Aero for the opportunity to review this wonderful and useful set of decals.
