Designed for the Academy kit

Here is another great early F-4 sheet from Furball Aero-Design. Like the earlier one, this one covers MiG killers from the Vietnam War. There are 14 different options, some of them differing only by serial number if the unit involved was successful. All of these aircraft are in matte light gull grey and gloss white. The sheet is designed for the Academy kit, but there is no reason they should not fit on other appropriate Phantom kits. The decals themselves are superbly printed by Cartograf.

Here is what is on the sheet:

F-4B 151403, NG 611, VF-96, USS Ranger, 1965
F-4B 150646, NE 101, VF-21, USS Midway, 1965
F-4B 152219, NE 102, VF-21, USS Midway, 1965 
F-4B 153019, NH 110, VF-213, USS Kitty Hawk, 1966
F-4B 150634, NL 107 VF-151, USS Coral Sea, 1965
F-4B 153022, NH 215, VF-114, USS Kitty Hawk, 1966
F-4B 153000, NH 210, VF-114, USS Kitty Hawk, 1967
F-4B 153037, NH 00, VF-114, USS Kitty Hawk, 1967
F-4B 152247, NK 202, VF-142, USS Constellation, 1967
F-4B 150431, NK 210, VF-142, USS Constellation, 1967
F-4B 150629, NK 203, VF-142, USS Constellation, 1967
F-4B 153019, NL 201, VF-111, USS Coral Sea, 1972
F-4G 150645, NH 111, VF-213, USS Kitty Hawk, 1965
F-4B 151445, NG 607, VF-96, USS Ranger, 1965

As with the previous sheet, few of these planes actually carried kill markings, and two of the options are not MiG killers but added to the sheet due to other circumstances. There are sufficient common markings to do two aircraft. A full stencil markings placement guide is offered and you get a bit of history on each one of the subjects on the sheet.

This should be a very popular sheet, especially with some very nice kit options out there for the enthusiast.
