Wolfpak Decals celebrate their 100th sheet by featuring the Century Series - including examples of the F-100D, RF-101C, F-102A, F-104A, F-105G and F-106A. The aircraft featured are:

  • F-100D-65-NA 56-2995 from the 309th TFS at Tuy Hoa AB during February 1969. It was painted in the South East Asian scheme, comprising FS34079, FS34102 and FS30219 upper surfaces with FS36622 lower surfaces. It carried white "SS" tailcodes and "CONG KILLER" in white on the nose;
  • RF-101C-60-MC 56-053 from the 29th TRS, 363rd TRW at Shaw AFB during April 1970. It was also painted in the South East Asian scheme with white "JO" tailcodes and a light blue fin cap;
  • F-102A-90-CO 57-823 from the 146th FIS, Pennsylvania ANG at Pittsburgh IAP during 1970. It was overall ADC Grey (FS16473) with a black nose, cockpit, fuselage spine, fin and rudder. The rudder carried light cream stripes and a horizontal stripe was also on the outer fuel tanks (Wolfpak have incorrectly printed these in light grey). On the nose was "City of Erie" in white;
  • F-104A-20-LO 56-808 from the 319th FIS at Patrick AFB during May 1965. It was painted overall ADC Grey (FS16473) with gloss white wing upper surfaces and a natural natural metal afterburner section. The intake bullet and intake lip edges were painted Insignia Yellow , and it carried the squadron badge on the left side of the fin, with the wing badge on the right side;
  • F-105G 63-8291 from the 17th WWS, 388th TFW at Korat RTAFB during January 1973, painted in the South East Asian scheme with white "JB" tailcodes and a full colour red/white/black sharmouth on the nose. "MUTTLEY THE FLYING DOG" was carried on the leading edge of the wing outboard of the intakes; and
  • F-106A-100-CO 58-0787 from the 71st FIS at Malmstrong AFB on February 2, 1970. It was painted overall ADC Grey (FS16473) with a medium blue chevron on the fin. This aircraft was nicknamed "The Cornfield Bomber" due to an unscheduled (and unmanned!) landing in a cornfield after the pilot ejected!

The usual format is followed for the instructions - color side views of each type, small black-and-white camouflage scheme drawings and full history, weapons loadout and color details. Decals are printed by Fantasy Printshop.
