Falcon's Tiger Finds its Way Out of the Jungle

FA728001

Surprisingly, Falcon Models has become one of our most important brands, offering hyper-realistic aviation subjects at reasonable prices. We were therefore thrilled to take delivery of their latest tooling – a Grumman F-11 Tiger jet (#FA728001). Used sparingly during the Cold War, the Tiger is nevertheless an important addition to anyone’s military aircraft collection, demonstrating the transition from the so-called Century Series range of military aircraft to the world of modern era jets we see today.

Falcon Models Goes Supersonic

FA728001

In a surprise announcement, Falcon Models plans to offer a 1:72 scale replica of the Grumman F-11 Tiger (#FA728001). Seeing service for only four years because its performance was inferior to the Vought F-8 Crusader and its J65 engine proved unreliable, this carrier-borne aircraft was nevertheless an important fleet defense fighter, since it was the US Navy’s first supersonic fighter jet. Likely follow-on candidates for replication will be a US Navy Blue Angels aerobatic aircraft, as well as a F-11F-1 Super Tiger, which were fitted with a more robust pair of engines.
