Vagabond Decals has released a nice airframe stencil/marking set for your favorite 1/48 F-14A, F-14B, and/or F-14D Tomcat kit. This set provides the essential markings for the Tomcat later in its service life wearing the low-visibility camouflage colors.

  • Panel hinge markings
  • LANTIRN pod stencils
