StayHome

F14A Tomcat

With the lockdown keeping us all confined to our homes giving us way too much spare time I decided to release the instructions of the Tomcat I built a couple of years ago. At nearly 4000 pieces and with a myriad of functions it is a build that will keep you occupied for quite some time I hope. You can buy the instructions in my webshop. When you have two sets of 42066 you’ll have about half of the pieces needed to build this model.

I wrote a longer article on all the functions here, but here is a short summary of the functionality:

  • Motorized landing gear
  • Motorized landing gear bay doors
  • Motorized Gatling gun
  • Motorized onboard pneumatic pump
  • Motorized swing wings
  • Motorized cockpit canopy
  • Pneumatic arrester hook
  • Pneumatic air brakes in the wing and on the fuselage
  • Pneumatic leading edge slats
  • Pneumatic intake bleed doors
  • Pneumatic delta wings
  • Pneumatic switch to choose between the inboard pneumatic pump and the of board manual pneumatic pump
  • Manual joystick that is connected to the control surfaces
    • Differentially operating elevons
    • Both rudders
  • Manual ejection system. This will eject the canopy and the two chairs

Stay home, stay safe.
