Wolfpak Decals 72-073 'Raptors Talons'
|$18.00 which includes US shipping.|
The next new Wolfpak sheet has a nice mixture of aircraft and as usual, most of them are from the last 20 years or so. This sheet has seven different options.
First up is a T-38B with the Adversary unit at Langley AFB in March of 2012. Overall gloss black and there are two different serial numbers provided.
The second option is an F-22A 'Maloney's Pony' of the 27 FS/1 FW also at Langley but this time in June 2011.
The second T-38B is from the Adversary Unit at Tyndall AFB in October 2013. I guess having 'units' is one way to provide a squadron without having a squadron. Probably a budget thing.
Next is a TPS painted A-4M From VMA-131 at Willow Grove in 1993.
The EA-6A is from VAQ-33 based at NAS Key West in late 1992. This one is also in the TPS.
Next to last is an OA-4M assigned to VX-23 (which used to be the Strike Directorate) at NAS Pax River in 1991. This one seems to have a replacement avionics spine.
Finally a gloss Marine Green MV-22B with HMX-1 in September 2013. This unit hauls around VIPs. I've yet to see the President fly in this as I think he prefers the older VH-3 Sea King.
The instruction sheet for this set is the best in the business when it comes to background information and what may be needed to accurately depict the aircraft being modeled. In addition to the actual placement profiles, there are several additional pages of information that include a history of the type, kits and update bits for these schemes, as well as load-out information, and any changes needed to properly model the aircraft in question, assuring you of the most accurate model you can have. A listing of kits and conversion sets is also included. A visit to their web site will get you much larger images of the markings options.
As with the previous sheets, these are superbly printed without any registration problems. If you have not yet treated yourself to some of the best researched decals around, you should.
