Hobby Master 1:72 Air Power Series Diecast Model

Grumman F-14A Tomcat – #162603, VF-1 "Wolfpack", USS Ranger, U.S. Navy, Operation Desert Storm, February, 6, 1991, "MI-8 Killer"

1:72 Scale.  Length: 10.5".  Wingspan: 10.6” (spread)



Limited production of approximately 500 models worldwide


In 1991 Grumman F-14A Tomcat 162603 NE-103 was assigned to USN VF-1 “Wolfpack” during Operation Desert Storm. On February 6 1991 it launched from the USS Ranger and intercepted an Iraqi MI-8. The F-14 had four AIM-9 and four AIM-7 missiles plus 700 high-explosive 20 mm bullets, but the radar was not working. This meant the F-14 had no computer assistance with the weapons but they still managed to shoot down the MI-8. This F-14 was lost in 2000 due to a bad CAT Shot but both crew members were rescued.

The Grumman F-14 Tomcat is a twin-engine variable sweep wing aircraft capable of supersonic flight. The aircraft is crewed by a Pilot and a Radar Intercept Officer (RIO) who share the tasks of navigation, target acquisition, ECM, and weapons use. The Tomcat was only operated by the United States Navy and the Republic of Iran Air Force. The name “Tomcat” is said to come from the call-sign used by Vice Admiral Thomas Connolly, which conformed to the U.S Navy tradition of giving Grumman aircraft feline names.


Hobby Master offers a wide selection of quality, pre-assembled, diecast model airplanes. Each model is crafted to a high level of accuracy using specifications of the original aircraft. They are constructed with precision-made diecast metal and some plastic components.
