This next sheet from Wolfpak Decals has more interesting Vietnam era aircraft, so break out your SEA paints for this one. There are eight interesting options on this particular sheet.

The initial offering is an aluminum painted F-100D from the 416 TFS at DaNang in mid 1975. Typical of the era, this one has a name, small nose art and a large mission tally.

Gotta have at least one Phantom and so we have an F-4D as flown by USAF aces Richie and Debellevue while with the 555 TFS at Udorn in Thailand during 1972. This one has five kill markings.

Next is a Scooter from the USMC. VMA-121 operated from Chu Lai during 1968 and one of their A-4Es is this particular subject.

There be whales on this sheet and in particularly a camouflaged version from VAH-4 in 1968. This is a standard KA-3B.

The second Phantom is another Richie/Debellevue mount, this time with the 58 TFS in mid July of 1972. There are two kill markings on this aircraft. Apparently these guys just grabbed whatever was available when they went on a mission.

A nice A-37B is next. This one is with the 427 SOTS in May 1972.

A nice OD USAF CH-21B is next from the water survival school at Homestead AFB in 1971.

Finally a CH-53C 'Jolly Green' from the Kon Tang Island debacle in May of 1975

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.
