FOV is owned under Waltersons Industry Limited

Somewhat like the FOV contact page (linked by Ladia) ....but may be more direct .... You should try both the Trade Inquiries and Customer Support links

Radio Controlled toys & hobbies - Enthusiasm beyond compare - Waltersons

Good Luck

Go to MH3 and check out the CH-47 threads.

There is an email contact for parts listed there.

I searched and got a few thread on upcoming CH-47 but didn't see any fov contact email.


i found an email address: [email protected] and sent an email to that. No reply for 3 days now.


I msg them on facebook and got some sort of reply saying we don't make fov f-14 anymore so we can't help you.....


well, that was kinda useful i guess....


I was able to find a discounted used fov f-14 so i got that. guess it's cannibalization time... kinda like what the iranians doing to their f-14? lol...except probably a lot easier than what iran has do to do to keep up their f-14 after US shredded nearly all their f-14.


As much as we complain about HM sometimes, it seems to me william at HM is the only one responding so far.


I also contact calibre wings to try to get some sparrow and phoenix missile. still no reply for 3 days now....

"Nearly"....is about right

All that is found visually at the AZ Boneyard using Google Earth....(images are usually months to a year old) ... Perhaps there are none now. It's amazing how the Boneyard keeps squadrons of some model types (even much older) and yet destroy others...Was the F-14 model not worthy to be saved in numbers? (Rhetorical Question) .... Pictured may be reserved (or preserved) for restoration and museums

yep, VG wings had their time.... just that the complexity and harder to be stealthy no longer good nowaday. also f-14 radar set and aim-54 are nowaday surpassed by AESA and increasing number of missiles that weigh a lot less and smaller. The concept and ideas were definitely ahead of their time...

As I recall the F14's were deemed too risky to store long-term least the Iranians obtained spare parts for theirs!?

The effort that iran is going thr to keep its tomcats flying tells you how good the plane still is even when compared to other jets like su-27 that they could probably get from russia for a lot easier and less costly over the long run...
