Caracal Models sheet CD72067 covers the 159 FIS, 125 FIG Florida ANG F-106A (58-0760) marked to celebrate the US bicentennial in 1976 and was named "City Of Jacksonville".

It wore a highly colorful red, white and blue scheme with the main body and wings being white, the forward fuselage, spine and forward fin painted red with white stars and the rear fin and rudder being red. "CITY OF JACKSONVILLE" was carried on the fuselage in red.

Caracal provide a basic paint diagram on the instructions, with additional templates available to download from their website. The decal sheet then provides all the white stars, emblems and the "CITY OF JACKSONVILLE" logo, and the instructions call out the location of each set of stars.

This is a highly complex scheme, but Caracal have broken it down into sections to make it slightly easier to apply.
