This decal set provides markings for the following four subjects:

  • NFG-1D, 92014, G3, NAS Livermore, 1946
  • NFG-1D, 92236, FF/68, NAS Oakland, 1958
  • FG-1D, 92150, T/70, NAS Sand Point
  • FG-1D, 76643, VMF-122, 643, Peleliu, 1945

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!
