This is an excellent model in 1/144 scale of the famous F-14A Tomcat flying the Jolly Roger, skull and cross bone livery.
Five distinct U.S. Naval Aviation squadrons have used either the designation VF-84 or the name and insignia of the Jolly Roger in history.
VF-84 officially applied to change the squadron's name and insignia to that of the Jolly Rogers and that request was approved on April 1, 1960.
VF-84 transitioned to the F-14A Tomcat in early 1976 and subsequently embarked on its first cruise on USS Nimitz in December 1977. In 1979 the unit was the first TARPS capable squadron of the fleet.
In 1980 it participated in the motion picture 'The Final Countdown' which propelled the skull-and-crossbones-adorned F-14's to international stardom. The movie featured a memorable scene involving two VF-84 Tomcats engaging two Japanese Zero's.
