This time, Wolfpak Decals moves north to Alaska and brings us eight great options from mostly the late 1960s. As with all Wolfpak Decals, 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.

Starting from the top of the profile page, there is an ADC Grey F-102A from the 317 FIS in 1969. Alternate serials are provided for one of their TF-102s in the off chance you wish to model one of the ugliest jets ever to have flown.

Next is an F-4E from the 43rd TFS/21st CW. Standard SEA camouflage with a blue rudder on which the polar bear is placed.

One of two H-21Cs from the 21st TOS is next. This one is polished aluminum with an ADC Grey underside and big, Daglo red bands (though they may be International Orange. A similar plane from the same unit is also provided, this one in overall aluminum lacquer.

The most modern plane on the sheet is this 1982 18 TFS/343 CW plane. It is a standard Euro 1 A-10, but painted with large sections of white, making for a most unusual scheme.

The T-33 is from the 5021 TOS and in overall ADC Grey. Rather ho-hum except for the black widow marking on the tanks.

A 5040 HS HH-3E is next. The color is not noted, but I'm betting on ADC Grey.

Same color with the EB-57E of the 5041 TOS. This and the two previous aircraft are from 1969.

 As with the previous sheets, these are superbly printed by Fantasy Printshop and without any registration problems. If you have not yet treated yourself to some of the best researched decals around, you should.
