Just wondering if there's any decals out there for a black-tailed VF-11 "B" model. Preferably THIS ONE but any of their black tailed 'cats will do.

Two Bobs do the bird your looking for :

In 1/72 its sheet 72-027 or in 1/48 its 48-039, their website currently lists the 1/72 sheet but the 1/48 version is sold out.

Hannants currently list both sheets in stock.

T-fan, to clarify, the tails, ventral strakes,& the canopy trim for that matter, are not black, but standard insignia blue. I've seen & taken pics of the actual aircraft myself. Take a gander at these pics I took OCT of 2004 :

I sent Bob Sanchez these pics along with a few others of VF-11 a/c, & he replied back saying these markings will be worked on next, since this aircraft has some special nose art.

I have the 2Bobs 1/48th scale sheet of this Colorful Cat. I'll be doing the same markings shown in the picts posted here.

I heard a rumor 2Bobs may be doing another sheet with the added "Thanks for the Ride" nose art this year.

Does anyone know if this squadron saw action in OEF or OIF?
