Wolfpak decals sheet 72-128 covers a number of unusual subjects including the ADM-20C Quail drone, F-111A, AGM-28B Hound Dog cruise missile, F-117A, QF-100D and B-47E.

The airframes featured are:

  • ADM-20C 61-0389 – this is a representative example painted overall FS16473.
  • AGM-20C (test version) – this was gloss FS16473 ADC Grey/gloss white FS17875 and fluorescent red-orang (FS18913);
  • F-111A 67-0076 from the 474th TFW at Nellis AFB on July 4, 1976, marked specially to commemorate the US Bicentennial. It wore the standard scheme for the type – dark green FS34079, medium green FS34102 and tan FS30219 upper surfaces with black lower surfaces. It carried white “NA” tail codes and serials. The forward fuselage and fin wore red/white/blue stripes and the lower skegs were medium blue with white stars. The nose gear doors carried “SPIRIT OF 76” in white and the bicentennial emblem was carried on the left side of the nose;
  • AGM-28B 61-2293 and 61-2347. Both were overall gloss white with Insignia Blue markings;
  • F-117A (serial unknown) spotted over Nevada during February 2019. It was overall matt black with “Dark Knights” in grey on the with a grey F-117 shape, surrounded with red bars;
  • QF-100D-70-NA 56-3093 from the 82d TATS at Tyndall AFB during 1990. This wore a lightly-weathered South-East Asian scheme comprising dark green FS34079, medium green FS34102 and tan FS30219 upper surfaces with light grey FS36622 lower surfaces. The nose, fin , wingtips and tailplanes were International Orange FS12197. Markings were limited to “63093” serial numbers on the fin, “361” in white on the nose and “ONE” in white on the rear fuselage (whilst this aircraft did NOT perform with the Thunderbirds, it is thought that the rear fuselage may have come from an ex-Thunderbirds airframe);
  • B-47E-5-DT 52-031 from the 341st BW at Abilene AFB during summer 1958. This aircraft won the SAC “Giant Voice” bomber competition and is marked accordingly. It was overall natural metal with gloss white anti-flash paint on the lower surfaces. It wore the SAC band and shield on the nose and a “City of Abilene” shield. A dark blue fin band was also carried.

As always with Wolfpak, instructions comprise a left side view of each aircraft, additional scrap views where required and black-and-white camouflage drawings, together with complete unit history, colour and weapons loadout information.

The decals are printed by Fantasy Printshop in good register.
