All Phantom Fans have heard of the famous VF-154 Black Knights. This decal set from AOA provides an excellent set of four markings for the F-4J during the 1970's. This sheet covers one Navy fighter squadron - VF-154 Black Knights - when they operated the F-4J Phantom in the 1970's. From the AOA website:

Marking Options Included:

  1. USS Ranger [Vietnam] (1970-71) - standard scheme
  2. USS Ranger [Vietnam] (1972-73) - CAG & standard scheme
  3. NAS Miramar (1977-78) - CAG scheme

AOA states that there are markings for the centerline fuel tank for the 1972+ period. You will notice that the fuel tank is quite visible on the illustrations of the F-4J provided by AOA in the packaging.

There are some important comments on the instruction sheets in the package, such as the need to paint the canopy framing a certain color prior to decal application. In fact, there is quite a bit of very helpful information regarding the markings that AOA has provided to the modeler.

The decals are printed in Italy by Cartograf, a company with an excellent reputation for producing decals of very high quality. The stenciling on both decal sheets is consistently sharp, with no issues.

This decal set is very highly recommended! Thanks to AOA Decals for providing this decal set to IPMS-USA for review.
