One of Two Bobs latest releases is sheet 48-067 F-11A Combat Lancer Aardvarks. The sheet depicts three F-11As that were part of the first six jets deployed to Takhli Air Base in Thailand. All three jets wear the SEA camouflage over a black underside. The markings on these jets are fairly sparse as no crew names or mission markings were used (on jets 60018 and 60016) during their Combat Lancer deployment. They tallies and names were added upon their return to Nellis AFB. The names are included on the sheet so you have the option of making these jets either during deployment or after. Bob has included a bunch of stencils on the sheet so you will have plenty of spares for another project.

The instructions are full color and provide some very useful photos of the actual jets depicted. There is also a brief history of all six jets that deployed for Combat Lancer including the two replacement aircraft sent. The back side of the instruction sheet provides a top and bottom view along with paint callouts. There is also a brief history of Combat Lancer detailing the combat effectiveness of the F-111A. There is also a “typical” loadout recommendation provided for Combat Lancer missions.

For those that have an Academy or even Monogram 1/48 F-111A sitting around waiting for markings, here is your answer. The sheet is very well laid out and the colors are spot on. My thanks to Bob Sanchez from Two Bobs for the review sheet. All Two Bobs decals can be ordered direct at http://www.TwoBobs.net  Get them before they sell out!
