Sheet no. 48-102 Phantoms Phorever is a new offering from CAM Decals that features two F4E Phantom II airframes in South East Asian camouflage schemes and a single airframe in three-colour wraparound. The artwork was prepared by Kamikaze Studio Concepts. The sheet is beautifully printed and in perfect register.

The first aircraft is 70-0306 ‘War Lover” from the 34th TFS, 388th TFW based at Korat in Thailand, 1972. This shark mouthed aircraft is coded JJ and features nose art on the left hand intake. The shark mouth is of a different shape and size to the traditional F4E type and will make an interesting change for Phantom Phreaks.

The second airframe is 67-0288 “Arkansas Traveler” of the 469th TFS, 388th TFW also based at Korat, 1970. These markings will be familiar to those that built the old 1/72nd Hasegawa F4E. This aircraft features a the traditional shark mouth, a green fin top, is coded JV and has a large nose art marking, a blue disk with a hillbilly riding a bomb, for the left hand intake. There are also eight swastika kill markings below the windshield.

Finally, 79-0040 is a 4th TFW Seymour Johnson based Phantom that has a five colour chevron that is painted over the mid spine of the fuselage, 4th Air Force and TACAIR Command shields, black fin top and black low visibility stars and bars.

A range of warning and caution markings are supplied for each airframe as is a red stripe for the turbine plane.

This is another quality offering covering interesting subjects from CAM Decals.
