(SEE NOTES BELOW FOR THE 1/32 BLUE ANGELS & BRITISH PHANTOM SETS AND THE 1/48 PHANTOM SETS)

F-4J Showtime 100. CORRECT MARKINGS for the aircraft in which Cunningham and Driscoll became the US Navy’s first aces of the Vietnam War. Why did we make decals for a scheme that was included in the Tamiya box? Accuracy, of course! The Tamiya decals, apart from their pedestrial printing quality, have some outright artwork mistakes in addition to being a mix of markings from different cruises; also they do not incorporate the differences between the “early” phase of the 1972 deployment and the last half of the cruise during which Cunningham & Driscoll got their famous MiG kill.

F-4J VF-84 Jolly Rogers. This set contains accurate markings for a Jolly Rogers "J" model with the all-black fin and rudder. The black "pirate flag" used on their F-4Bs was not seen on their later jets.

Marine MiG Killer. This portrays the only Marine MiG killer from the Vietnam War (Marine crew flying a Marine jet), Phantom from VFMA-333 Trip Trey.  Based on photos provided to me by the RIO!  Much thinner and finer than any provided in Tamiya kits.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT OTHER 1/32 SETS:

Blue Angels Phantom. F-4J Phantom II Blue Angels 1969 season DOUBLE SHEET.  This is the only Blue Angels F-4J decal set to get the proper yellow color for the markings (which may look strange on the decal sheet but correct on the painted model).This sheet and the color testing was researched by the inimitable Hal Tippens.

F-4J (UK) 74 Sq RAF, 1988 NATO Tiger Meet Scheme. MULTIPLE SHEET SET. Love this jet (a standard USN F-4J leased to the RAF) . . . some of the most INept artwork ever applied to a military aircraft (let alone a "special" scheme) resulted in one of the most eye-catching Phantoms ever! I mean no offense to the artist (and after all, they designed and painted the artwork overnight at the last minute), but the tiger nose art looks like it was done by a none-too-talented nine year old! In spite of the technical "deficiencies" of the nose art, it looks very cool, and it is impossible to miss this jet even in a large collection of models. The tiger artwork was different on each side, and we of course captured those differences. Our decal set provides full crew names, serial numbers, and code letters (T, I, G, E, R, S, Q, N) for every F-4J 74 Sq flew at that time. Alternate markings allow you to build the early "gray tail" ("grey tail" for you Brits :)) scheme as well as the later standard "black tail" scheme without the Tiger Meet markings. Only 21 sets still available.

F-4J Showtime 100 of VF-96. CORRECT MARKINGS for the aircraft in which Cunningham and Driscoll became the US Navy’s first aces of the Vietnam War. Why did we do decals for a scheme that has been done so many times by model companies as well as other aftermarket decal companies? Historical accuracy, of course. Kit decals, apart from their usually pedestrian printing quality, tend to have various artwork mistakes in addition to being a mix of markings from different cruises, nor have they incorporated the differences between the “early” phase of the 1972 deployment and the last half of the cruise during which Cunningham & Driscoll got their famous MiG kill.
Only 26 sets still available.

F-4J of VFMA-235 “Death Angels.” In their original scheme, the squadron carried only a red radome and red/white star swoosh on the fin. The “Death Angel” insignia was added to the rudder soon after the white stars were added to the radome. It is purported the squadron flew combat missions from Da Nang in this scheme, although we were only able to find photos of this scheme taken at MCAS Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii. In keeping with fighter pilot traditions, the squadron called themselves the “Death Angels” while the rest of the Marine Corps fighter squadrons called them the “Dead Angels!”

Ferris & Bunny F-4Js . . . and now for something completely different! This set features the amazing experimental “splinter” scheme designed by Keith Ferris for the Navy’s Phantoms and tested on VF-194 “Red Lightnings” birds in 1996. Navy pilots reported the scheme was actually easier to see than the TPS scheme then in use so this camouflage was not adopted. The second bird is one of the famous “Black Bunny” Phantoms (BuNo 153783) flown by the VX-4 “Evaluators.” This is the first time all correct markings for Modex 1 have been included on a decal sheet.
