The first of the new sheets for 2011 from Wolfpak is this one with a number of KC-135 tankers and OA-4M aircraft among the highlights. As the part number implies, these are all 1/72 markings so without further ado, let us see what we have.

First is a T-38C from the 469 FTS/80 FTW at Sheppard AFB in mid 2010. It is painted in the standard two greys that are taking over the T-38 fleet.

The first of two OA-4Ms is this plane from H&MS-32 at Cherry Point in late 1983. This is the oritinal scheme.

The F-16C is from the 134 FS, Vermont ANG with its OIF mission tally on the nose. The 134th has so far dodged the budget cut axe.

Next is the other OA-4M, this time in the tactical paint scheme with which these all went to Brazil. At the time of the reference photo, this unit was based at NAS Agana, Guam (1985).

The last three are all KC-135R/T aircraft. The McConnell planes are with the 22 ARW/931 ARG and there are three serial options.

From the 92nd ARW there is a lone marking option as is there with the 916 ARW plane. There are some minor differences so be sure to read the background instructions thoroughly

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. A listing of available kits is also included.

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.

Thanks to WolfPak Decals for the review sample. You can get yours at the link to the left.
