AOA Decals are to release a couple of decal sheets designed for the Tamiya 1/32 Phantom F-4B/J
32-021 – “Lovebug 5” VMFA-334 Falcons – 1/32
”This 1/32 decal sheet covers one specific F-4J Phantom as she appeared in Vietnam in 1968-69 and later in Japan in 1969.
Although the Phantoms from VMFA-334 Falcons have been seen before in the modeling world, this sheet features properly shaped falcon insignias for the fuselage and also correct large sized modex numbers”.

32-022 - Phantom Eagles & Knights – 1/32
”This limited 1/32 decal sheet is for F-4B Phantom conversions to the Tamiya F-4 Phantom series of kits and covers two USMC squadrons during the Vietnam War. Note that this release is for decals only - F-4B conversion parts are NOT included!

8 Marking Options Included:
-VMFA-115 Silver Eagles - six options (covering three airframes) for aircraft at Chu Lai (1968/69) and Da Nang (1970-71), South Vietnam; MCAS Iwakuni Japan (1971); and Nam Phong, Thailand (1973).
-VMFA-314 Black Knights - two options for aircraft at Chu Lai, South Vietnam (1968/69)

In addition to national insignia, only minimal stencilling and common F-4 markings are provided. Inclusion of full airframe data/stencils was too large of a project to be covered for these releases”.

AOA Decals

The decals are printed by Microscale and the expected release date is August 2017.

Interesting doing a set of decals for a non-existent kit, Tamiya hasn't done a F-4B, and the Cutting Edge conversion for the J is long OOP/insanely expensive if you can find one.

GT Resin has a conversion kit to the F4-B that is reasonable in price.

Great looking conversions set and thanks for the link to your review Bill

As Bill said, there's a GT conversion still available and there is(was?) also one by Real Model in the last couple years. I believe there was also a CAM one too at one point?
