The Grumman Aerospace Corporation built over 700 F-14 Tomcat fighter jets. Used by the United States Navy, the variable-sweep twin-engine jet operated off aircraft carriers. It was first deployed in 1974, and was finally retired in 2006. Additionally, the Iran Air Force received about a dozen F-14s, and a few of those are still flying today. F-14s were 19 meters (62 feet) long, so this very detailed model looks like about 1/3 the scale of the real plane.
