The upcoming 1:18 scale F-14 by JSI is one of the holy grails for 1:18 scale collectors, and I almost missed seeing it at SDCC 09!

SDCC 09 – JSI 1:18 scale F-14! (Part 1)

f14-06So there you have it, the Fighting 1:18th’s first look at the upcoming JSI F-14.  I appologize for some of the less-than-steller pictures, my flash crapped out this morning and I had to make do with what I had!

Merit said they are going to be displaying everything until Sunday, so I have a few days to go back and get some more details. I’ll try to get some new poses with the F-14 and see what I can pry out of them! They also had the new Tiger, P-38 and Corsair for sale at the booth.

f14-08If you have any specific questions about the F-14 or other JSI products, please sent me a message and I’ll ask the Merit represenatives.

I also had a very long and insightful conversation with Merit’s Anthony Chin, and will post some of the notes about that later on.

Thanks for reading, and a big THANK YOU to the guys at Merit for answering all my many questions and for being true fans of the scale.

And don’t forget to check out our SDCC 09 Coverage on our forums: The Sewing Circle

Addendum.. I forgot to mention that it’ll most likely separate into two sections, front and back, it looks to come apart behind the cockpit, but the Merit guys were not sure. It’s going to be interesting to see how they design a shipping box for this puppy.

Also, as previously reported there will be no pilots included (There is a BBI pilot in the pictures for reference) and no announced single carded pilots either, but Merit seems to think they will hopefully come out with some seperate pilots to buy by the time the F-14 comes out at retail.
