A Black Cat Crosses Century Wings’ Path


With Toy Fair all but a distant memory, we were beginning to wonder when Century Wings would announce its next project. According to our distributor, this Japanese-based model maker has announced that it will be offering yet another F-14 Tomcat, this time around painted in midnight black and bearing the markings of the US Navy’s VX-9 “Vampires” (#CW001601). Don’t get us wrong – Century Wing’s F-14s always seem to sell out, largely due to their incredible detail, relatively low production runs, and cult-like following. It’s just that it would be nice to see some new toolings appear at this stage in their life cycle, something dealers and fans have been requesting for quite some time. Look for a June arrival for the latest ‘Cat.
