Nice info.  Nice pic of how the nozzle part adapts to the back end. I was thinking of trying the F100 nozzle to the F-14D adapter but that pic looks a lot more like the F100 directly onto the back end section of an A model.  Makes things easier from the standpoint of robbing parts from other kits.
Thanks again guys.

Dare I say a pair of F-16 engine nozzles would go nicely:

I did that for my RAF F-15, I made a casting of an F-16 exhaust nozzle.

Thatís the plan.  I have plenty of Hasegawa nozzles for my Hasegawa Tomcat and I can get a few PW nozzles from Tamiya Aggressor F-16 kits for my Tam Tomcat project.

Hmmm...TF30 powered F-16 also possible?

Certainly by using styrene engineering principles.

I think the exhaust I used came from a F-16N kit that has been used as a donor for other projects.

A good read.

Well, Iíve been to Topgun so Tom Cruise thinks heís me

Commander Richard ďCorkyĒ Erie flew the F-14 Tomcat with the US Navy. Here he describes the strengths and weaknesses of this massive and iconic carrier fighter aircraft.
