  1. Gents, Decals are in, website updated and the buttons are hot! Mark S. Wolfpak Decals
  2. I typically include the location where the photos were taken hence Lakenheath . The nickname for the 366th Fighter Wing is "The Gunfighters." Two of the squadrons assigned to that wing are the "Thunderbolts", 389th and "Bold tigers", 391st. There is an additional squadron that I did on an earlier sheet the "Buccaneers, 428th, which at that time flew the Singaporean version of the F-15E. In this case based on the markings on the intake both jets were assigned to the 389th. I know it's a bit confusing but it is what it is. Incidentally "Checkmate" earlier carried sharkmouth markings whic
  3. Andrew, Thanks for the kind words. You can never have too many F-4's! Mark
  4. Murph, Thought you might like those! Mark
  5. Gentlemen, The delayed first release for 2020 from Wolfpak. Here’s what it contains: Sheet 72-134, Banditos. First up is the F-105D “Frito Bandito” from the 357th TFS at Tahkli AB during 1969. It is followed by an AC-119G and AC-119K of the 17th SOS and 18th SOS of the 14th SOW. From Davis-Monthan we have options for one of two A-7D’s. The first is the wing commander’s jet from 1970 and a line jet from the 354th TFS. A T-28D-5 in SEA camouflage from the 4407th CCTS of the 1st SOW is our subject. To round out the sheet one of two options for an early B-52G of the
  6. Gents, The website has been updated, sheets are in and the buttons are hot! Thanks for your patronage and Happy Holidays. Forgot to mention that sheet 72-132 includes decals for the AGM-158A, B & C JASSM. Also if you look at the 28th BW B-1B you will see the WWII era tail code of the 379th BG on the nose gear doors. The triangle "K" with a yellow border. This was applied to the deployed B-1B's that were attached to the 379th Air Expeditionary Wing, the current incarnation of this unit. Mark S.
  7. Gents: It’s time for the Wolfpak December release with the Thank You sheet. Sheet 72-132, Raider’s Lance. First up is a F-5N from VFC-111 with the Sundowner rudder. New markings for the 174th ATW from Syracuse using the colors of the university there. An interesting A-10C from the Armament Development Center is next. This jet was used to test a variety of new load-out combinations to include the fuel tanks while carrying weapons. From the past a Korean War era F-94B from the 68th FIS. This unit used different colors to identify the various flights within the squa
  8. Sheets are on sale. Website is updated and the buttons are hot! Mark S.
  9. Gentlemen, Time for the fall release from Wolfpak Decals. Sheet 72-130, Dragon Wings. First up is a F-16CM from the 480th FS with plenty of mission marks from Spangdahelm. Our second subject is a F-100D from the Royal Danish Air Force. A F-15C from the 110th FS, Missouri ANG at St. Louis follows. The markings are for the fini-flight for this type with the 110th. This squadron becoming an Associate B-2 squadron and moving to Whiteman AFB. Three more aircraft from Denmark are next. A fighter, reconnaissance, and trainer variants of the Draken in RDAF service. F
  10. The kit that I would release would be pylons only. It will be up to the modeler to make any other corrections and or additions to the Revell-Monogram B-1B. The modifications to correct the kit have been well documented. I may include the camera pod if I can find a good photo of it. Camera pods or arrays were and are test specific. Only one B-1B carried these pylons for the integration of the AGM-129. After captive carry and jettison tests but before any live launches the program was terminated. I would be surprised if ModelCollect would include them in a kit.
  11. Jonah, The numeral 28 on the nose gear doors and "ED" tail codes. I can throw the markings on a Wolfpak sheet. Mark
  12. Ray, Yes, 1/72 scale. Mark
  13. Gents: B-1B No. 28 was used for integration testing of the AGM-129 ACM. Here are photos of the aircraft with the pylons in place. It was the only B-1B to carry cruise missiles externally. Does anyone have interest in a set of these? I'm looking at doing them for myself and would have more cast if there is interest. My guesstimate of the cost would be between $25 and $35 for a 6 pylon set for one aircraft. Mark S. Spectre Resins Wolfpak Decals
  14. Gentlemen, The decals are in, website updated and the buttons are hot! Here's a link to the page showing sheet 72-065 describing the sheets which I found in the bin and are on sale. http://millcreekconsultants.com/WP72-A-065.html Mark S.
  15. I recently purchased their cruise missile kit to find that they forgot about the engine inlets on the AGM-129. How can you miss that?
  16. Darren and Ben, Thanks for the information and clarifications. Dutch, Got to think about it. 1/144 hasn't been my strong suit. Flyboyf18, I will have plenty of these sheets at Chattanooga.
  17. Trojan thunder, As luck would have it I found a small quantity of sheet 72-065 in a bin. It has a RB-47H and SAC F-84G amongst other subjects. Will put it on sale at the same time I place these sheets on sale. Think they'll go fast so place your order for 72-065 as soon as it's available.
  18. Gentlemen, Here’s Wolfpak’s August, 2019 Release: Sheet 72-128, GIANT VOICE. This sheet starts out with options for 2 ADM-20 Quail decoys and one test drone. Next up from 1976 is a Bicentennial F-111A from the 474th TFW at Nellis AFB. The camouflaged version of the AGM-28B follows. From this past February the latest markings for the F-117. Could not find any information on the unit flying these jets or their mission. The all-white painted AGM-28B follows with options for those which carried the SAC shield and those which did not. As with the camouflaged one th
  19. Gentlemen: The sheets are in, website updated and the buttons are hot! Thanks Jacub! Mark S.
  20. Here is what is in the write-up to date: Notes for modelers: The easy way to distinguish the D from the D+ in photos is to look at the tail boom. The D had whip antennas and the D+ had blade antennas; although it still retained the antenna wire from the fuselage to the horizontal tail. This aircraft was equipped with RWR antennas on the nose and underneath the tail booms, and the sponson mounted 7.62mm machine guns were mounted for combat operations. For self defense chaff/flare dispensers were mounted on the tail booms and an AN/ALQ-144 “disco-light” IR jammer could be fitted.
  21. Jake, I could not find definitive information on the OV-10D+ nor a list of serial numbers. If you would share what you have I and I'm sure the rest of the community would appreciate it. Mark S.
  22. Spike, Just looked at the photos I worked from and the DCAG was on the left and CAG on the right. Guess there are exceptions to common practice. Mark S.
  23. Gentlemen, Here is the June 2019 release from Wolfpak Decals. Sheet 72-126, Sharur, The first subject is an OV-10A in the grey, green and black camouflage pattern from VMO-2. Next up is one of the two CAG F/A-18’s on the sheet a F/A-18E from VFA-27 in 2017 on the USS Ronald Reagan. In addition to the aircraft I have include markings for the JSOW, AGM-54C and C-1. These markings include the window for the sensor in the nose of the weapon. The OV-10D follows in the same camouflage pattern as the A model and is from VMO-1. From VFA-94 the Sh*t Hot World Famous Orang

  25. Gents, Thanks for the kind words. The B-52E IS EXTERNALLY IDENTICAL TO THE B-52D so it can be built from any B-52D kit. There have been several conversion kits that will give you the pieces for the B-52F hard-drive alternators. DB Resins made a B-52G conversion that has them and I believe Cutting Edge did a conversion kit as well in addition to the one Murph mentioned.
