For Dragon/DML kit. Alps printed.

Continuing with a great selection of 1/144 decals for the really small scale builder, this particular sheet has markings for two complete aircraft from VA-85 aboard the USS Forrestal back in the mid 1970s. This means that both aircraft are in the light gull grey over white scheme with tan radomes. There are markings for a KA-6D and one for a pre-TRAM A-6E (which means no under nose FLIR pod).

The A-6E is the CAG bird so it has the multiple colors on the rudder. The KA-6D tanker has the usual band around the rear fuselage that these planes carried throughout their life. In this case, the band is green.

As you can see from the sheet scan, you get full fuselage and wing walk bands as well as an anti-glare shield decal. Tank markings are also given.

Those of us who are fans of 1/144 should be glad that Starfighter Decals has taken the time and trouble to provide us with optional markings and they don't charge a fortune for them either. Well worth the cost and I highly recommend visiting them to see what else they offer.

Thanks to for the review sample
