CAM Decals (Pro Series) 1/32 McDonnell Douglas F-4E Phantom II Serial No. 70-0306 / 34th TFS, 388th TFW Korat RTAFB, Thailand, 1972 Serial No. 67-0288 / 469th TFS, 388th TFW Korat RTAFB, Thailand, 1970 #P32-006
CAM Decals is under new ownership and is releasing a new series of decals: the "CAM Pro Series." These cover US Jets and mostly F-4, A7, and F/A 18s.
This sheet covers two Viet Nam conflict USAF F4-Es based out of Korat Thailand in 1972 and 1970. The "Arkansas Traveler" was the personal ride of Col. Douglas and features WWII Luftwaffe kill markings. The decals provided will probably need to be used in conjunction with the kit decals to provide a full marking set. Stencils for example, are not included in the CAM sheet.
References should be checked carefully as these profiles show the later gun barrel sheath and Korat Phantoms were certainly a mixed bunch, some having the "smoother chin" sheath.
The decals are printed beautifully on a very thin carrier and in perfect register. The colors look spot on and the artwork is excellent.
The instruction sheet is two pages of profiles showing both sides and the top. There is a simply effective painting guide included.
The sheet is designed to be used on either the 1/32 Revell or Tamiya F-4E kit and is recommended.
