The number of applicants for enlistment in the US Navy, which you cooperated with in the filming of the blockbuster movie [Final Countdown], has increased rapidly.

- The U.S. Navy was pleased with this, but the popularity of the 84th Fighter Squadron, which was active in the movie, was concentrated and hindered personnel exchanges, and other squadrons made a furious protest to the Navy Headquarters. .

- The US Navy Headquarters, which cooperated in the filming of the movie [Top Gun] released in 1986, set up a fictitious unit to gain popularity in the navy and eliminate the sense of unfairness between units. I did.

- This decal collection contains the markings of the [imaginary] F-14 that appeared in [Top Gun].

- It is compatible with Rebel, Ace, and Academy that have released 1/144 scale F-14 kits, but it can also be used for other 1/144 scale F-14 kits.

Explanation in Japanese


現用 アメリカ海軍 艦上戦闘機 F-14A デカールセット ムービーコレクション No.7 「トップガン」 1986 (レベル/エース/アカデミー用) (デカール)

●映画「ファイナルカウントダウン」の大ヒットで撮影協力したアメリカ海軍には入隊希望者が急増しました。

●米海軍はこれに気を良くしたものの映画で活躍した第84戦闘飛行隊へ人気が集中し人事交流の妨げになると他の飛行隊が挙って海軍本部へ猛烈な抗議を行う事態となりました。

●1986年に公開された映画「トップガン」に撮影協力する事となった米海軍本部は架空の部隊を設定する事で海軍への人気を得ながら部隊間の不公平感を解消する事としたのです。

●このデカール集は「トップガン」に登場した「架空」のF-14のマーキングを収録しました。

●F-14の1/144スケールキットをリリースしているレベル、エース、アカデミーに対応したものとなっていますがこれ以外の1/144スケールF-14キットにもご利用頂けます。


●画面狭しと暴れたF-14のマーキングをコレクションできるデカール集です。
●高品質印刷水転写スライドマーク
●トップガン出演のF-14Aのマーキングを収録

In the US Navy, pilots are not called pilots, they are called aviators.
- This is due to naval circumstances. For those involved in maritime affairs, a pilot is a [water guide], not an aviator.
- We call US Navy pilots [Aviators] to distinguish them.
- A new sequel to the 1986 blockbuster movie [Top Gun] was released simultaneously in Japan and the United States in 2022 and became a big hit.
- Aviator's lines appear throughout the play.
-The decal set movie collection No.6 released this time includes the special marking F/A-18E/F and F-14A that `appeared` in the sequel set in this Top Gun.
-Decals for Level 1/144 scale F/A-18E/F and F-14A, but can also be used for other companies' same scale F/A-18 and F-14.

1/144 Working Vehicles of the JSDF Series 003 - Tomytec


 

1/144 Working Vehicles of the JSDF Series 003 - Tomytec

A Japanese Twitter user has shared these images of  'Military' Vehicle releases, scheduled for 13/10/2022/

I think these must follow on from their assumed sucess of repackaging the Diotown range as "battlefield" buildings? 

So, here we see several military items collected from the 1/150 Diotown and Truck collection series (now in military colours) and repacked for release.

So the big question is the UH-2 helicopter which I suspect to be a new cheap mold?
