Yes, that's under MSRP/MAP.

I love the Red Rippers for its air to air weapon configuration

I never got this one, instead I have the CW Tomcatters but it's still a great bargain for that price...

Yep, sure did. I figured it had to be a pretty sweet deal considering most of Century's F-14's are retailing for close to $150, and that's not including shipping which would add about another $12, so I estimate I saved close to 40 beans on this one.

Great deal ArcLight - you have definitely saved a few bucks on this one and it is a great F-14 as well. I have mine parked beside a Dragon Wings F-18E and they look great together

Just the one so far, that and two A-6 Intruders. At $150+ per model for the Tomcats I doubt there will be a lot of them in my hangar, unless a great deal like this one just pops up from time to time.

Nice but you should also get one of the CW F-8 Crusaders if you can, it will blow you away, the quality is pretty darn good too!!

Not to mention an A-7 or two, and quite often they are very reasonably priced
