The days of nose art always return when an air force is in combat for a period of time.


Seymour Johnson AFB 336th Fighter Squadron is no exception to this rule. Durin Operation Iraqi Freedom the squadron gave quite a few of their jets some really cool nose art. Two Bobs have given you the ability to produce any one of five aircraft they depicted on heir Strike Eagles. My personal favorite one on the sheet is “The Saddam Hunter” nose art depicting a cartoon of Saddam with a bullseye over him. There are also options with Marvin The Martian and Yosemite Sam. All four jets are quite colorful and they all also sport mission markings.


Two Bobs give you one set of national marking and enough stencils to do one of the aircraft. All of the nose art decals are superbly rendered and each is a three level decal. This provides the best look possible once all three are on. Bob gets his decals printed by Microscale so for those who may worry about a three level decal, have no fear. These decals are extremely thin and have practically no carrier film visible. I am also especially happy with the color of the slime lights. They seem perfect to me.


The instructions are Bobs usual full color affairs detailing all four aircraft. They also have the list of kits and accessories available although Seamless Suckers were left off the list  J .  On the back side of the instructions there is a photo of the nose art on “The Saddam Hunter” jet along with a brief modern history of the unit and its Eagles. There are also top and bottom painting guides along with different paint manufactures recommended paints.


All in all this sheet plain rocks!! I am now forced to go out an buy yet another Pro Modeler 1/48 F-15E kit. I am a sucker for nose art and this sheet really did make one heck of an impression on me. I would highly recommend it to anyone who has or wants to have a Strike Eagle in their collection. 

My thanks to Bob Sanchez at Two Bobs Aviation Graphics for the review sample.  This sheet can be purchased directly at www.TwoBobs.net
