No decals come with the conversion sets. You purchase the decals separately from Zotz. They are equally as nice, but I'd like to see another sheet with some Marine Corp options myself.

I think that I added some confusion to the subject.  The decals for the conversion are separate order from the kit - Eli at Zotz has done a beautiful set that contains the main decals for both the A and G model plane - in his earlier F-8 sets he did several years ago he also included extensive data stencils for the F-8.  It was these stencils that I was planning to use on my RF-8.  Dave Roof also told me that he is working on a complete set of data stencils for the F-8s in 1/32 which I am looking forward to.

Got mine yesterday too. Very nice! Although the Zotz decals are nice, I wish there were some low-viz TPS options.

Does the F-8 and RF-8A/G use the same set of stencils?

Here is a belly view of a RF-8, looks like the ALE-29 chaff dispensers between the strakes:

I still think Paul should offer a t-shirt with the Fidel Castro and Dead Chicken mission markings as an official tie-in product.

 

But as many of you know, i'm just very twisted.......

Can't say that all the data stencils would be the same but would certainly think most would be transferable between types.

I'm also the guy who came up with a sales slogan for the F4U Corsair, about 75 years too late.

 We ran out of photoetch for the RF-8's, more is on the way so it won't be long.

Sorry about that...I don't buy as much P/E up front as I used to as we can never tell how well a particular model will sell.

Will the resin parts for the ALQ-100 DECM antennae (the strake-like parts that go under the fuselage near the MLG) be available separately? I need two sets, one for an F-8J and another for a Linebacker era A-7E.

Thanks

Tony

Ignore the test camera installation but here is what the ALQ-100 on a A-7 look like:
