I understand Brian. Felipe, from FCM, has faced the same problem here in Brazil. I'm saddened.
I have a project to assemble one of each squadron that flew the Tomcat. I chose the 1/144 scale for the costs, space required, quality from Revell and Trumpeter kits and the number of decals available. To get an idea, there are almost 150 decals on the market and at least 50 other decals in the kit boxes: impressive over 300 possible versions! But some squadrons did not appear in 1/144 or they are long out of production in this scale:
1- VF-51 Screaming Eagles – OOP from Interallied
2- VF-103 Sluggers – there is a version on Hobbycraft kit but the decals are……. green!
3- VF-191 Satan´s Kittens
4- VF-194 Red Lightnings
5- VF-201 Hunters
6- VF-202 Superheats
7- VF-301 Devil´s Disciples
8- VF-302 Stallions
To my project, I have produced homemade of Eagles, Sluggers, Hunters and Devils. I have the VF-1 Wolfpack first cruise from Fightertown decals (FTD) and I am looking for VF-31 last flight ceremony, from FTD, sold out on 144-08 decal sheet.
Well, since there are no FTD and FCM releases at this time, I am supplying my needs with MYK and Rose Ridge.
