This release the first ‘B’ variant . Century Wings launched their series in 2006 with a stunning F-14 mold that defined a new standard for detail and accuracy in diecast models of modern jet fighters. The mold itself is exceptionally rich in detail with every access panel, exhaust vent and antenna faithfully reproduced while the paint-finish is accented with an unprecedented number of crisp pad-printed markings adorning the entire airframe. The hinged canopy opens to reveal an extensively detailed cockpit interior with removable pilot figures and locks securely closed, leaving almost no visible gap. The complex F-14 landing gear and doors are reproduced as robust sub-assemblies that allow for quick and easy configuration for ground or in-flight display. A detailed selection of weapons is also provided that can be reconfigured just as easily. The standard release features an articulated swing wing that can be configured in varying sweep positions. Certain special releases feature the aircraft in “launch configuration” with wings fixed in the full-forward position, leading and trailing edge flaps permanently deployed and the nose-gear compressed with launch bar extended to engage the catapult shuttle.
