DXM Decal is a decal company out of Taipei, Taiwan that produces a very nice line of aftermarket subjects. In this release, we have four F-14B Tomcats from VF-103 after they assumed the mantle of 'Jolly Rogers'. This set provides options for four aircraft that reflect three time periods and two different aircraft carriers.
The examples presented here:
- F-14B, 162918, VF-103, AA/100, USS John F. Kennedy, 2004, CAG aircraft
- F-14B, 161855, VF-103, AA/112, USS George Washington, 2002, line aircraft
- F-14B, 162691, VF-103, AA/102, USS George Washington, 1999, XO aircraft
- F-14B, 161862, VF-103, AA/107, USS John F. Kennedy, 2004, 'Mutha'
This set provides the major stenciling as well as the distinctive aircraft markings in this set. The result will be an eye-catching option for the Hasegawa kit and will create a stunning model for your next contest entry!
