For the Platz kit.

This particular sheet is also for a Platz kit, the new A-4E/F Skyhawk. Starfighter Decals is giving you three markings options on this one, all in the light gull grey over white scheme. The kit includes all of the markings you'll need for all three planes, including the red intake warning markings, though you will have to paint the front of the splitter plate.

First up is from VA-152 aboard the USS Shangri-La in 1970. This is the CAG bird so has small multi-colored triangles in the rudder.

Next, a standard line bird from VA-113, aboard the USS Enterprise in 1968. The metallic blue of the fin marking is particularly well done for this one.

Finally, the squadron commander's plane with VA-106 aboard the USS Intrepid during 1968.

The ALPS printed decals are very nicely done and for those who have used these before, not a problem. New users should be advised that these are somewhat fragile in terms of scratching if over-handled and need to be cut out individually from the solid backing.

Thanks to for the review sample.
