The F-4 Phantom is a
legendary jet and this decal sheet captures the Phantoms with one of the best
known and most loved Squadrons....VF-84 Jolly Rogers. These 5 Phantoms are

eye. If there was ever a reason to build a Phantom....this sheet is the
best reason....VF-84 Phantoms......you can't top that.
I would like to thank
Decals for providing me with this
