This next release is mostly oldies, which I like and provides markings eight different aircraft.

The initial offering is an F-86A from the 91 FIS/81 FIW at Bentwaters in 1952. The big issue with this option is the lack of a modern A model F-86 or conversion in this scale. There is the Matchbox kit, but we seriously need a recent tool F-86A.

Next we have a pair of F-4Ds from the 8th TFW. The first is from the 433rd TFS in mid 1972 and it is equipped with a pair of M118 LGBs, one of the earliest uses. The other is from the 497th TFS duesed during Pave Spike trials. Both are in SEA camouflage.

The lone 'modern' option is from early 2018 and is one of the Hunter Mk.58s used by ATAC from Pt. Mugu. I believe these are ex-Swiss AF planes.

In the overall grey livery of their last years is an F-11F of the 524th FS/27 FW in May 1995.

A colorful F-101C from the 81st TFW at Bentwaters in 1981 is next.

Finally, a pair of bare metal Air America planes. The first is a C-47 spotted at Bankok in 1971, while the other is a C-54G seen in Japan in 1972.

I know I've said this before, but it is true. The instructions are the best in the business and you are provided with a list of kits and upgrade bits required. The decals are superbly printed by Fantasy Printshop.

Thanks to WolfPak Decals for the review sample and the image of all the options as their cover sheets are too long for my scanner. Visit them at their web site and pick up yours.
