He probably had to increase the radius of the spinner to get it through the C&U Regulations, but the rest of it is so large it wouldn't be deemed a hazard.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

By Mad Martin found on the "Facebook Scale Modellers" page.



"What if... The Blue Angels had flown the F-14 Tomcat? 📷:-) More pictures of my fictional F-14D Tomcat "Blue Angels" in scale 1/144. Basekit is from Trumpeter, some parts are from Revell, scratchbuild flaps and other details. Decals are a mix from different manufacturers, yellow parts of the fuselage are airbrushed. Hope you enjoy! "

Yeah!!! I understand the whole "costs" aspect of it and what not but what they COULD have done is just have a single Tomcat (and one back up, naturally) to do solo stuff and perhaps even join in with the Hornets for a couple maneuvers. I bet it would have been wildly popular.

Though IIRC the Navy pilots tend to be either Hornet or Tomcat people - nothing in between, and for the Hornet folk to have given any concessions of time or airshow space to a Tomcat would have been unthinkable...  ;D

But it would have made for an impressive display.

I saw the Angels do their thing in their F-4J period and they were truly AWESOME!  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Loud and frightening were only two of the descriptive words.....  :o

Buddy of mine was a wrench turner in VF-84.  He'd always say "Why send a bug to do a Cat's job" when discussing Tomcat v Hornet

No doubt!  ;D  I'm in team Tomcat, for sure.  :mellow: :mellow: It could very well be my favorite fighter jet. (I like Hornets, too though....  :angel: ) This has me wanting to build one all of a sudden.  :unsure:
