Wolfpak Decals sheet 72-109 "Blood, Sweat & Valor" covers a mixture of RAF and USAF subjects, covering an EF-111A from the 429th ECS, EB-66E from the 42d TECS and a KC-135R from the Ohio ANG. The aircraft are:

  • EF-111A 67-0039 from the 429th ECS at Cannon AFB during June 1998. It carried the standard scheme for the type - FS36492 overall with the upper fuselage, fin and wing upper surfaces painted FS36320. It carried grey "CC" tailcodes, outlined in white and also carried "429 ECS", also outlined in white. On the fin radome was a black crow;
  • EF-111A 66-0049 from the 27th OG at Cannon AFB during June 1998. It was painted and marked similarly to 67-0039 but carried "27 OG" on the fin;
  • EB-66E 54-438 from the 42d TECS, 388th TFW at Korat RTAFB, Thailand during April 1972. It was painted in the South East Asian scheme, comprising dark green FS34079, medium green FS34102 and tan FS30219 with the undersurfaces painted grey FS36622. It carried a large full color (black/white/red) sharkmouth on the nose and white "JW" tailcodes;
  • KC-135R from the 166th ARS, 121st ARW at Rickenbacker ANGB during 2016. It was painted in the overall AMC Grey scheme of FS36173 with markings in black. It carried a red tail band containing a large "O" and "OHIO" in white. On the fuselage was a large black arrow, and the boom stabilisers were black with "OHIO ANG" in white.
