First Look

This set represents an airplane near and dear to my heart -the Wild Weasel. These markings provide markings for the Hill One camouflaged F-4Gs of the Idaho Air National Guard. The decals are provided on two sheets, with markings to do any of three aircraft. These three aircraft received sharkmouths and other commemorative markings when the unit finally retired these fine warriors.

F-4G F-4G

These unique commemorative markings are also provided. If you are interested in doing a Desert Storm era aircraft, this set is still for you! The active duty Weasels also carried the WW tailcode, so these markings can be adapted to the active duty machines by simply not using the Idaho bands or commemorative markings. Either way, if you are any sort of a Phantom Phan, you must get this set in your favorite scale!

My sincere thanks to Leading Edge Decals for this review sample!
