VF-51 Screaming Eagles


Recommended Posts

1980 paint scheme of the VF-51 "Screaming Eagles". The VF-51 only flew the F-14A and was disestablished in 1995, so they never flew the later versions of the Tomcat.

You have the wrong patches on there, and the helmets are wrong. You people and your A paints on a B *face palm*

Haha, sure, I find it hard to aquire proper sources for what patch the pilots were wearing. If you have the info, I'd be happy to change it.

 

As for the helmets, yeah, the eagle is not white and I've yet to add stripes in the back. It's close enough though...

Anyway, I don't really take skinning that serious ;)

Fictional 1997 variants

 

Here's my take on the fictional VF-51 in 1997, having transitioned to the F-14B. Note that the 1980 version features the more "creamy" paint scheme. The pack includes CAG, XO, Line and Line alternate skins. I also switched the patches so the Squadron insignia is on the chest, the tomcat patch on the left shoulder and the F-14 patch on the right.

* I've already corrected the Eagle/star on the back so that the stripes doesn't penetrate the star...

The patches look good on this one and I do apologize I was wrong about the helmets. I should have done more research but what I could find was only the white helmets. Nice work, look forward to seeing them on the A in the future.

I have some patches for you from my personal collection that they use to wear. The tactical fighter bomber patch is from the 90s right before they went away and the other one is another triangle patch they use in the 80s.

Really cool! So far I'd avoided using classic F-14A skins on the B, but now I really enjoy them. Great work!
