Well I finished the VF-111 F-14B...

I drooped the nose slightly on the skin and finally got the shark teeth and eyes to work... (Please disregard the FA default tail and nose art, I had the campaign exe in when I took these shots...)

Not poached by YOU, poached by THEM.
The Tiger Teeth belong to the Flying Tigers and thier decendants at Pope.

Actually nope, you couldnt be more wrong!...

VF-111's teeth are Shark's Teeth, not Tiger Teeth...

The eyes above the teeth on the screenshots is a dead giveaway, plus...

VF-111's CAG bird "Miss Molly". You can see the shark's teeth on the nose of the aircraft and the nose of the fuel tanks...

Unfortunately I cant place the teeth on the radome, due to it being constructed of unskinned polygons.

Why EA did this to the shapes is beyond me, it would have made the aircraft look so much better to be
fully skinned, but they were simply to cheap to do so!

Did you look at this pic?

http://www.topedge.com/alley/images/f14a/f14a111ac.jpg

Its obvious its shark teeth and not tiger teeth...

Afterall, they working called the "Flying Sharks"!!

And BTW, the Flying tigers were not the first to decorate their aircraft with teeth, it was done on both sides in WWI...

SO the case could be made THEY stole the idea from the previous war! Wink

The A.V.G. has always said they were "sharks teeth" and that they stole them from African RAF units.
I'm quite sure VF-111 got the idea from the Flying Tigers or from someone who lifted the idea from the A.V.G.s Curtis planes. Lets put teeth on everything, no sense letting an historically recognised image get in the way of something cool. I've seen teeth on BUFFs, F-117s and C-130s. Let the historicle plagiarism roll on!

Errr... I know, I was watching "Dogfights" on the History Channel when I posted that and they had already talked about the Shark Teeth...

I was trying to be a smart ***, as usual!
