First Look

FCM Decals has an interesting line of aftermarket decals from Brazil. The subjects covered in this line include many Brazilian civil and military aircraft subjects, WWI aircraft, and the occasional look at the aircraft of other nations as well. FCM has released this nice pair of F-14A Tomcats from VF-114 from the mid-1980s whilst aboard USS Enterprise.

These include:

  • F-14A-90-GR, 159833, VF-114, NH/102, USS Enterprise, 1984
  • F-14A-90-GR, 159849, VF-114, NH/106, USS Enterprise, 1986

The printing on these sheets are nicely done, and printed by Microscale.

If you're looking for some colorful alternatives for your next Trumpeter or Tamiya F-14 project, here are two good choices to choose from.

These decals are available online through FlightDecs or directly from the manufacturer.
