Here is the next sheet from WolfPack Decals and again, they have chosen a very  nice selection of subjects and I'm sure you will find at least one you'll like. I know I have. As with the previous sheets, these are superbly printed by Fantasy Printshop and without any registration problems. You will find that the carrier film is a bit more than you may be used to, but it is easily trimmed back before use. That is about it in terms of finding something to fuss about.

First up is an F-105F (probably more accurately an EF-105F as it does not have the large side antenna pods of the F-105G). This is an aircraft based with the 333rd TFS/355 TFW in Takhli Thailand in 1969. The last I knew, the 333rd was the Strike Eagle training squadron with the 4th FW.

Next is an A-6B from VA-35 aboard the USS America. Note that this has the perforated speed brakes.

An OV-10A from the 20th TASS 507 TACW based at Saw AFB is the next option. This one is in the dreaded Euro I paint scheme so will be a bit of a dark aircraft.

Another Navy plane is an A-6E from VA-55 the USS Coral Sea in 1986 during one of the US vs Libya confrontations of the mid 1980s. This one is in the Tactical Paint Scheme.

A very new plane is a CV-22B with the 71 SOS at Kirtland AFB in New Mexico. Markings for two planes from the 8 SOS at Hurlburt Field in Florida are also provided. You may recall that last year one an 8 SOS plane was the photo of the week.

Finally, painted in CARC Aircraft Green (a new shade to me), is a UH-60L from the 10th Avn Reg, 10th Mountian Division in 2008

There are kits for all of these planes, though you may need to do some modifications  to match those that are depicted on the sheet. Typical of Wolfpack Decals, the instructions are superlative, providing a history of the planes in question as well as loadout information and any updates or modifications required
