MAW-Decals is a relatively new decal company that seems to be well-placed to get quality information - Camp Lejuene, NC. MAW (for Marine Air Wing) is affiliated with VF Decals (VF - Navy Fighter Squadron).
In their first release, they've tackled three F/A-18D Night Attack Hornets from three different USMC squadrons. This time around, we have two disctinctive F/A-18Cs from the same squadron - VMFA-122 'Crusaders'. One of them is a colorful 'boss bird'!
The two aircraft covered in this set are:
- F/A-18C, 164265, VMFA-122, DC/01, January 2004
- F/A-18C, 164278, VMFA-122, DC/13, January 2004
The decal printing is crisp and colorful and also includes one set of maintenance stencils. The instructions are printed in full color.

My sincere thanks to MAW-Decals for this review sample!
