Hi Tim,
Is this the printed version of the digital book I reviewed in 2016?

Hi Andy
Its the printed versions of Part 1: Atlantic Fleet and Reserve Squadrons. I have Part 2: Pacific Fleet and Reserve Squadrons which is a separate book to review too.

Wow, F-14s were colorful. The only one I’ve built was Monogram’s in the early 70s. This book calls me to build another.

I still have a Monogram 1:48 scale Tomcat. I bought it at a Air Show at RAF Valley, then discovered the Academy Tomcats. I can remember building five of Academy’s quarter scale Tomcats. I must admit I didn’t find them to difficult to build in the late 1990’s and accepted the slight discrepancy in its shape. Then again we had different expectations of plastic kits back then :smiley:
