  1. This is going to be another great sheet. Must have.
  2. Wow, I never knew so many units few the Phantom in ADC Gray. I thought it was just one or two. The F-4 sure looks sharp in ADC colors! Were there any units flying F-4Es in this scheme?
  3. Nearly all the jet mig killers (Phantoms, Eagles, etc) were mundane "line birds" when they got their kills. They only became Wing Kings and CAG birds much later in life due to those victory stars on their sides. That's the beauty of the war time schemes for these birds. They were war hawks driven by eager young Ens, LTs and Capts, not big brass show birds.
  4. TIL. I had to look that up. 9/11/72 Maj. Lee T. Lasseter and Capt. John D. Cummings of VMF-333, flying F-4J BuNo 155526, Shamrock 201. They launched off the USS America CVA-66 for a MigCAP mission. They shot down one Mig-21 with an AIM-9G and damaged another. They sustained damage from an SA-2 and were forced to eject. A second Phantom was also lost due to running out of fuel. All four crew members were rescued. Source: "Mig Killers. A chronology of U.S. Air Victories in Vietnam 1965-1973" Donald J. McCarthy Jr.
  5. I was just looking around for decals for my Monogram F-4J. I see a lot of Vietnam War F-4B decal sheets and tons of USAF F-4C-D-E sheets, but not a lot for the Yankee Station Navy F-4Js. Nearly, all the F-4J sheets I see are post war. There are a lot of kits out there in 1/48. Academy, Italeri, Monogram, Hasegawa made probably dozens of boxings. So how about a sheet for Vietnam Era F-4J Mig Killers? Just throwing it it out there. 🙂
  6. Last year I was building a modern Kadena Eagle. I stole a JHMCS helmet from an F-16 kit and had plans cobble some decals from a few different sheets. I got the kit mostly complete, but progress eventually stalled and it's been sitting in a plastic tote for months. Now I know why. I was waiting for this decal sheet to come out!
  7. That would be awesome! Thanks!
  8. Very cool tribute schemes! What is the topside camo color on that top one? Is that supposed to represent a 355th FG P-51?
  9. Nice! I've been waiting for that F-35B sheet and the F-14 is a must have too! The YF23 sheet's really nice too, already have that one.
  10. KusadA, any chance of re-popping this one (CD48089) at some point in the future? Probably slim to none, but it doesn't cost to ask.
  11. Interesting. Thanks. I'll try some of that to compare. I love Milliput, but keeping it fresh is a problem.
  12. I would love to see these markings on the sheet. I don't even have a kit for them, but I'd buy the decals and look for the kit afterwards!
  13. This sounds a lot like Milliput. I've been using that for similar situations, or even for scratch building small parts that I can shape.
