Ready for Take-Off!
The F-14 Tomcat is a legend of the skies, which served between 1973 and 2006 and - with powerful radar and long-range missiles - was developed for carrier-based units. Its most prolifically produced variant was the F-14A, which itself was given a number of upgrades throughout its production; late F-14As (those produced from the late 1980s) featured a more reliable engine design, and notably, the AN/AXX-1 TCS camera pod, plus the AN/ALQ-126 ECM antenna ahead of the wing gloves. Some even had alterations to the fuselage allowing installation of the TARPS reconnaissance pod. From the early 1990s, the aircraft was capable of mounting bombs on its belly; in conjunction with the AN/AAQ-25 LANTIRN pod, these were laser-guided - the F-14A had evolved into a multi-role fighter. Carrier launches required a steam catapult, to which the aircraft would be harnessed with its nose lowered, variable sweep wing forward, and flaps and slats down. Numerous flight deck crew would be engaged in the launch, including a "Shooter," who gave the signal for take-off.

V-156F Vindicator ‘Aéronavale Service’
In the effort to get modern military aircraft, France bought larger numbers of US machines in 1939. Among them also the V-156 Vindicator dive bombers. The French version was designated the V-156F and differed significantly from the US machines – it was not fitted with the arrestor hook below the fuselage and instead carried air brakes in the wings. The V-156Fs also got French armament - machine guns, and underwing racks and bombs. Even though they were tested on board of the Béarn carrier, France operated them from land bases only. All of them were eventually destroyed during the Battle of France in 1940.
This release offers the excellent Accurate Miniatures styrene parts joined by a new injection moulded French-type wing, new windscreen, photo-ethches and detail resin parts. The decal sheet caters for four French machines, one wearing a camouflage scheme, three in grey over-all.

Plastic Kitscale 1:48unpainted/unbuilt SAAB AJS-37 Viggen “Show must go on”The SAAB AJS-37 Viggen was an aircraft ahead of its time. Its designers used an unorthodox construction which enabled the plane to meet all requirements which had been laid on it and in some parameters even surpass them. The Swedish Air Force ordered several various versions of the Viggen jet fighter.The very first version in service was the AJ-37 attack-fighter, later upgraded to the ASJ-37 Viggen standard.One of these modernized machines got a special red anniversary scheme and was also embelished with “Show Must Go On” inscriptions and ghost cartoons and is now offered in our model kit which comes on seven grey styrene sprues with one clear with canopy parts and all that is topped by a pre-coloured photo-etched set.
