The decals are beautifully printed, and are clear and sharp. The white markings are nice and bright. Some of the markings are 2 or 3 piece decals, ensuring proper color and registration.

VFA-204's CAG jet is very colorful and includes unique speed brake artwork. There are special step-by-step instructions for applying the tail markings as they must be placed in a certain order.

The 159th FW F-15A Wing jet is also colorful, and includes the latest version of their tail design.

A note on the color callouts for the F-15A - the instructions show FS36320 for the lighter grey, but the actual color is FS36251. The manufacturer paint callouts are correct, though. Thanks to the guys on the discussion board for noticing this.

The 48th scale version includes 2 sheets - one main sheet and a smaller one with additional markings for the Hornet.

This sheet is available through http://www.twobobs.net/ and select US Hobby Shops.  Overseas customers can purchase these from Twobobs site or through Twobobs network of overseas distributors.  Remember, shipping is always FREE to US Customers at Twobobs!!
