Default Wall of Tomcats

Some of you have been asking where I keep all of my Tomcats that I get done. I have a wall in my model room that I had my art teacher from my school paint a mural on. Then I got some shelves from Home Depot and I had myself a wall of Tomcats.

It is indeed -154. A friend of mine from VF-11 gave it to me for building the squadron models. Unfortunately, his call sign was BUTT. LOL

A couple of questions D-Rob ...
1) Why is there a gap where the VF-41 should be?
2) Would you add another shelf to space the collection out a little? (I like displaying a squadron patch with every model. I figure that you have more Tomcat stuff.)
3) If you had to move, would you take the wall with you?

Answers!

1) I sold off the VF-41 jet and have to make a new one.
2) That's the plan, but I'm cheap and didn't want to spend more money. I'm going to expand over Christmas break.
3)Nope, the wall gets painted over.

I always wondered what the Tomcat shrine looked like. Awesome!

Outstanding display and killer wall painting. I like the way you've got them arranged. Reminds me of coming back to the boat when the Airwing was on board and some of the Tomcats had there tails over the side or as we called it, TOW ( tail over water )
