Wolfpak Decals 72-111: Spirits in the Sky
|$17.50 which includes US shipping.|
This sheet has another nice selection of mostly USAF aircraft ranging from 1970 until today. There are seven options covering five different aircraf on this sheet, with most of them in greys as the norm for the last 25 years or so.
First up is an A-4F from VA-22 aboard the USS Bon Homme Richard in 1970. Light gull grey over white with the LGG being matte as the gloss LGG did not come into effect until 1972.
Next is the first of two Strike Eagles, both with the 391 FS out of Mountain Home, ID. The first with a shark mouth is one that participated in OEF in 2001. The second has a SNIPER pod and was based at Lakenheath in April 2017.
From 1984 is the F-20 Tigershark. This is the third prototype and it is nice to have some quality markings for this plane. Note that it has mission or kill markings on the nose.
Gotta have an F-4 and in this case it is an F-4D from the 13 TFS/432 TRW at Udorn, Thailand in mid 1972. This is one of Steve Richie's planes and carries a single kill marking.
Finally, we have a pair of C-17s. First is with the 445th AW at Wright-Patterson AFB in mid 2015 names the Spirit of the City of Fairborn. The other is with the 437 AW 315th (Assoc) at Rhein Main AB in 2005. it is named The Spirit of Sgt. John L. Levitow, the only USAF enlisted man to be awarded the Medal of Honor during the Vietnam War.
There are good kits for all of these options so finding one that works for you will not be an issue. For those not looking forward to building a resin C-17 kit from Anigrand, apparently Kinetic is releasing one later this year.
As you might expect, the decals are superbly printed by Fantasy Printshop. The sheet's outstanding instructions provides complete drawings of all these schemes to ensure that you will be able to duplicate them.
Thanks to WolfPak Decals for the review sample and the image of all the options as their cover sheets are too long for my scanner. Visit them at their web site and pick up yours.
