    That looks great you did an excellent job!!! Can they withstand a ball hit if need be in case the ball jumps a bit?

    Niiiiiice! You should put a couple of orange LED's in the ass to look like afterburners.

    Yeah, they survive quite well. They shake around a bit of course, but I kinda like the effect!

    I like it a lot and it looks like one jet is peeling off to get Gen Yagov. Good work comrade!!!

    Did you make the models yourself from a kit or are they metal, looks great by the way.

    Wow, I like the playfield - I can't remember seeing a F-14 playfield looking that Nice!!!! LEDs and a double JET Mod - AWESOME

    I have only one Thought - coming from a person that LOVES F14-TOMCAT. It would ROCK if you could put them pointing in the direction that the balls come from the upperplayfield downward(Spinner to drain hole flow), even sweeter if you could somehow get them to be right above the balls natural flow.

    I tried all different kinds of configurations, this one balanced out the playfield best and allowed ample room for the jets. The upper playfield on this machine is a little crowded. The kill flasher in the radar also lights the jets up nicely whenever you get Yagov!

    Also, If you look closely, they are in line with the aircraft carrier, like they just went gear up after their catapault launch!

    Next step needs to be a MiG to put over the Yagov shot

    Nice work, the planes look great!

    F14 is a hard game. When we got the first ones in, we were like WTF is this??

    Steve Ritchie did a great job with the very original layout. Although I feel we are privileged that Stern is still making games, I don't think we will ever see another layout again like that.

    what was that movie called. I remember it. He goes off about over a couple different scenes. Classic. I haven't seen it since 99 or something. I remember ol Eric Stoltz (I call em Stoltzie) was it. Cult classic.

    Digging up an old thread here, but how did the models (of the f-14's) get mounted on the playfield?

    Here are the ones I added to mine, I removed the center one and put it on the Glare Guard.

    I guess I was more or less asking what kind of mounting post was used to attach the plane to the playfield... it looks like the OP used some kind of a flattened bracket, maybe? Not sure...

    Looks like a piece of rigid wire wrapped around the post nut and shoved up the tailpipe.

    I put an F-14 on my PF but was a bit more conservative and mounted on the shooter lane just up on the wire rails. I'll post a pic in a bit when I get some time to myself.

    I placed my jet mod in the top right of the PF. I bought a hot wheels or matchbox model and mounted it with a small piece of plumbers wire strapping.

    Actually just pm-ed with the OP. He used landing gear wire purchased from a radio controlled plane hobby shop.

    Oooo never would have thought of that one.

    Here is my F-14... Now I am not normally one to put toys on a PF as a mod, but I had this F-14 by accident. (Note to self: When looking at something on Amazon you may be interested in, save it in your wishlist and not in your cart. Otherwise if you do one click buy on a bottle of Brillianteze, you may get a prize.....)

    I am so trying this. The F14 models are $7 shipped right now here:

    That bass mod sounds like an awesome idea too. Are there details anywhere detailing how to rig something like that up?
