The Tamiya F-14A Tomcat set a standard for plastic model kits. If there is a drawback it is that the aircraft can only be built as a very early Tomcat. Some things that need to be addressed to change your Tomcat to a later A model and B model is the so called Beaver Tail, as well as, the chin pods and gun vents. Quickboost addresses all of these areas with individual upgrades.

This offering is a single piece of light grey resin. It represents the beaver tail as seen on later F-14As, B, and Ds. It includes the fuel dump port and the ECM pod. Removing the part from the pour stub is easy enough. It is a drop in replacement part for the kit part. Simple and very easy to add.

If you want a later Tomcat then you need this part. No two ways about it. This part is an important addition from the Late F-14A onward. Now you just have to decide which chin pod you'll need. Don't forget the gun vent panel too.

Highly recommended

Thanks to Quickboost and IPMS/USA for the review copies. You can obtain yours by contacting them at www.quickboost.net or at your local hobby shop or online retailer.
