Two Bobs Aviation Graphics is one of leaders in aviation decals with an impressive variety in 1/32, 1/48 and 1/72 scale. This latest release has very colorful markings used by VAQ-137 and VAQ-138 and has markings for two aircraft, one for each unit.

There are two sheets are printed perfectly without any print register errors. The small markings are very fine and easy to read. All the markings are included from unit markings down to the stencils and walkways. Stencils and other markings are included on a smaller second sheet insert and you should not need the kit decals for your build. There is one (front and back) color instructions sheet that clearly show placement of markings for both subjects. The instructions indicate the correct FS paint colors and cross reference to AK, Hataka, Mr. Color and Mr. Paints. The color layouts for each aircraft and easy to distinguish where each color is applied.
