This decal set provides markings for the following three subjects:

  • F9F-2B, 123451, VMF-311, WL/2, 1953
  • F9F-2, 127207, VMF-311, WL/2
  • F9F-2, 127143, VMF-114, AE/6

This provides sufficient markings to do three aircraft (you'll use the national markings and stencils from your kit(s)). You can purchase these decals directly from Starfighter Decals on their website.

My sincere thanks to Starfighter Decals for this review sample!
