For this new Wolfpak Decals sheet we have another half dozen interesting options for the 1/72 builder. These are all Vietnam War era subjects so get your SEA paints ready!

The first two are overall ADC Grey RF-101C Voodoos. THe first is from the 45th TRS at Tan Son Nhut AFB in 1964 while the other is with the 363rd TRW at Shaw AFB in the same time frame. Note that the 45 TRS plane has a slightly different camera port arrangement.

Next is a 34 TFS F-4E based at Korat in 1971. This is a Tiger FAC mission aircraft.

The A-4C is with VMA-223 at Chu Lai in 1965.

The O-2B 'Bullshit Bomber' is with the 9th SOS at Nha Trang in 1968. This one is equipped with the loudspeakers used by some of these planes.

Next we have an AC-119K based with the 18th SOS at Nha Trang in 1970. This one has the 'Fly United' nose art.

FInally, an AP-2E with the 1st ASA company at Cam Rhan Bay from 1967-72. There is a conversion set available for this one from Falcon.

There are kits or conversions available for all the subjects so modeling any of these will be easy enough. As usual for Wolfpak, the decals are superbly printed by Fantasy Printshop and the sheet comes with the best background information provided by any sheet in the business. I personally like the multiple types on one sheet format as it allows a variety of builds to be done from a single sheet. 

Thanks to WolfPak Decals for the review sample. Visit them at their web site and pick up yours.
