First Look

Here is an interesting decal release from Modeller, a selection of F-14A Tomcats in Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force service. This set provides two primary time periods: the Iran-Iraq war (1980-88) and contemporary. There is even one example from the days of the Shah.

The aircraft presented in this set include:

  • F-14A, 160320/3-6022, 82 TFS, TFB 8, Isfahan AB, 1981, MiG-killer
  • F-14A, 160320/3-6022, 82 TFS, TFB 8, Isfahan AB, 1995, MiG-killer
  • F-14A, 160347/3-6049, TFB 8, Isfahan AB, 2012
  • F-14A, 160377/3-6079, TFB 8, Isfahan AB, 1988
  • F-14A, 3-863, first Iranian F-14 built, USA, 1975

You can see in the decal image that the roundels have separately printed red dots for the center, so you'll have to add them yourself. These decals are printed by Begemot Decals, and I'm impressed that the clear carrier film is no larger than the printed areas, very precise printing indeed.

My sincere thanks to Modeller for this review sample!
