Dear Christian, thanks for sharing your beautiful photos with us again. It is always nice to hear from an old friend!
Your USS Nimitz 1978 diorama setting looks fantastic.
Everything looks realistic and dynamic on that deck!
All the photos were taken with nice photography angles for sure!
Also you really catch some powerful shots for the VF-114 Tomcat in the air!
Those in-flight photos do show the beauty of the airplanes well and grab everybody's heart!

Hello CW Team,
I would like to introduce you my very first CW F-14D Tomcat "Felix01" diecast model. This model looks awesome and is from my favourite VF-31 "TOMCATTERS" squadron.
I also purchased VF-31 and Tomcat patches and also VF-31 helmet.
Thank you very much.
Greetings
"FELIX"

Century Wings reply:
Dear FELIX, thank you for sharing your very first Century Wing model with us. We can all feel your excitement as well. The combination of the VF-31 helmet with these two patches together is brilliant!
It underlines the back aircraft and front card inadvertently and lead us to the amazing "TOMCATTERS" world!
Many thanks to joint us and looking forward to see more of your collections!

This is my collection of 1/72 models of the best fighter - jet ever - the Grumman F-14 Tomcat.

My very first collection of diecast military aircafts is a 1/72 VF-154 NF101 2003 by Century Wings because the tooling and quality is much better over other manufacturers, it caught my heart and I have increased my collections since then.
I've been waiting for a long time for Century Wings to release this F-14D VF-31 AJ101 which attended the F-14 Final Flight Ceremony at NAS Oceana, Virginia on Sept 22, 2006.
Finally, they did it and of course I am very pleased with their diecast replica.

Dear Char, so nice to hear good compliments about our aircrafts!
Collector's enjoyment and happiness are the major power for us to improve always!
The background of your photo is very eye-catching.
Natural view with bright colours does light up the whole scene and stand out the airplane well.
Thanks for sharing your pleasure with us and please keep having fun!

Hi, I'm a diecast Tomcat collector since a few years and Century Wings is my favorite brand.
My first Century Wings Tomcat was the VF-103 Jolly Rogers final Tomcat cruise version.

I'm looking forward to new great Tomcat releases.
Thank you Century Wings.

I never new Century Wings existed until one day my Father brought home from Japan our first Century Wings jet, F-14A from VF-84 in the launch config. From that day on, both him and I share the joy of collecting these beautiful models. The both of us have collected about 18 F-14's, A-6's, F-8's, and SR-71's in total.

Since my father is a pilot in the Air Force, my family and I had the privilege of moving around the world, thus exposing me to many aircraft; my favorite being the F-14 Tomcat. It is, and always will be the best fighter ever made. As of right now, I am currently done with college and in the process of applying to Undergraduate Pilot Training in the Air Force, in hopes of earning a fighter pilot slot.
Advice to potential future flyers: stay out of trouble with the law,
NO DUI's and stay in physical shape! And keep shooting for that pilot slot, keep your eyes on the prize!

Thank you Century Wings for these timeless pieces!
I look forward to seeing more releases! Aloha

Collin

Dear Collin, it is so wonderful that you are not only sharing your collection with us but also your future target.
Your collection blends in with the Japanese swords in the back round very well and creates this visual impact.
Black swords and these beautiful aircrafts together does make a magnificent scenery!
We are also very proud that our aircrafts were part of your good memory and lead to good result.
Keep going and we believe you would win the prize soon for sure!

I learned about Century Wings in Year 2007. Then I immediately ordered my first model: VF-101 AD164 Grim Reapers 2004.
I still remember what I felt when I took it in my hands and it was - a big dream of mine came true.
From that moment the models of my favorite brand among thr best that I have, and with the arrival of each new model the sense of perfection overwhelms me again.
Over the years, I received the following models from Century Wings 22 F-14A/B/D, 3 A-6E, 4 A-7D/E, 3 F-8E, 2 SR-71A/B.
I hope and believe that the company's development will cause even more exciting models in the years that follow. Thank You !

Dear Maverick, thank you for your strong support!
It is always nice to hear compliments from our Century Wings collector!
Very appreciated about the photos you took!
All of the different aircrafts combine together in a great harmony.
The two field shots also look sharp and neat.
You must be very proud of your collection!

Hello, I have been collecting Century Wings models since they were first released - about the same time I started collecting diecast models.
Many of my models are still in storage however I have displayed all of my Jolly Rogers Tomcats together - my favourite US Navy Squadron which is why I would love to win the excellent T-shirt!
Including airliners my collection is over 800 pieces and I am proud to have all of the Century Wings releases in 1:72 scale apart from 7 models and look forward to seeing more exciting releases from you in 2015 - especially the wonderful F-14 Tomcat!

For years now enjoy your collection of planes and I’m collecting them.
I’ve included the pictures of my collection so far. As you can see I’m still missing two A-6’s, but I’m hoping to receive them in a few weeks.
As the F-14 being my most favorite plane off all times, closely followed by the SR-71, your collection is right up my alley.
Best Regard,

Dear Sander, your collection is astounding.
So excited to see the full line of all the CenturyWings flights!

Nickname:Carbon Plane
Country:U.S.A

Monthly winner in October!
We had a very difficult time to make decision in our internal appraisal and election this time.
Carbon Plane certainly knows how to present the night departure action powerfully.
You can actually feel the busy atmosphere and the tense of the crew through the shoots.
Also based on the remarkable effect of the light reflection, it delivers the realistic ambience so well that one would feel like actually in the airport sight!

Keep sending the photos to us and you might just be the coming winner next time!

Comments:
Hi,
I collect Century Wings models.
F-14 is my favorite.

Dear Carbon Plane, those night shoots look so powerful and make people could actuallyfeel the tense of the departure / landing of the planes.
Especially you place those people figures around with different poses so make it look even more real!
I must say that you really caught the minute and had the great job done!!

Hello, Century Wings team.
Well, I'm from Brazil so I am known as "Brazilian ace" in discussion forums on models in 1:72 scale.
I started collecting diecast models at the end of 2011, therefore my collection is very small.
I made pictures of four models (two Tomcat and two Blackbirds).
I tried to photograph them with natural light. Hope you enjoy.

Century Wings reply:
Dear Brazilian ace, it is so nice to see somebody who takes photos with natural light beautifully!
You create the spectacular views for those planes and also artistic atmosphere can be felt strongly.
I could really say that your photos would make everybody jealous for sure!

From:Florida,U.S.A

Comments:
Hi, my name is Millo, from Orlando FL, US.
Attached are photos of some of my models.
Each model is displayed according to real life pictures of that same plane.
Also, I have attached "live shots", displaying some of my models in "action".
Hope you enjoy them.

In answer to your question (posted in reference to the pictures now on the website), the "live action shots" in flight, were taken with each plane on its own Century Wings stand, but with each stand at an angle in which it is not visible. In two of the pictures, the stand is spread under the plane, right under the breadth of the wings, and the bottom of the picture is cropped right at the wingtip so that the stand is not visible.
In the picture of the model in flight with the wings swept, the photo is cropped at the bottom, right below the Lantirn pod, so that the stand is not visible either.
To make the "live shots" even more realistic, I (by computer), blocked the points where sidewinder missiles are meant to be attached, so that they are not visible.
Each picture, including the shots in flight, was taken using natural light; even the studio pictures.
I am glad you enjoyed the photos. Thanks for posting them.

Century Wings reply:
Dear Millo, how marvelous pictures of "live shots", it is so nice to see the planes in action! How did you take them so well?!
Those photos look very delicate, especially with the authorized card displayed next to it!
I believe you treat your collections very carefully so none damage,finger-print or dust can be found!
Thank you very much for your generous sharing!
