This is a 1/48 Plastic F-14A Tomcat Model Kit from Academy Plastics.
12253

The failure of the F-111B to meet the requirements set forth by the Navy
for their new basic fighter resulted in heated competition for a suitable
carrier based plane. Variable-sweep wings were not a part of the new
specifications, but Grumman proposed this still-new feature on their entry
because of their experience with them. The capable production version could
cut its width in half thanks to the inclusion of the variable-sweep wings.

FEATURES

Plastic pieces attached to sprues and molded in gray.
The surface of the plane is decorated with fully engraved panel
lines and rivet detail.
Highly detailed cockpit interior includes a seat, controls, and
gauges.
As an added bonus a life-like pilot is included.
Adjustable sweep wings are functional and give this model the realism
that intrigues modelers young and old alike.
Intricate landing gear system is complete with every detail.
The Tomcat is no slouch when it comes to equipment. You’ll find that
the model is equipped with a variety of missles and extra fuel
cells.
Modelers have the choice of one of two different jet exhaust cones.
Clear plastic canopy allows close inspection of cockpit.
Detailed pictorial instructions guide you through assembly.
