This F-4J Phantom scheme I wanted for probably 15+ years for myself and finally decided to do it and release it as a simple "low budget" sheet that features only the squadron specific markings. Although VMFA-334 Falcons has been covered before, the falcon insignia in particular was somewhat lacking in any scale until now. Also in order to keep cost down, only one aircraft is covered, although it can be represented either from Vietnam or later in 1969 when -334 were in Japan.

(edit...) Contrary to what I initially planned, included will be national insignia and intake warnings as well as a few other common markings (similar to what was provided on my earlier F-4J VF-143 sheet)

Expected release is August.
Price TBD

DAMN! I wish I'd had these when I did mine (used the ancient CAM decals and they mostly fell apart).

Bill you still managed a really fine job even with those old sheets (three sets worth!) I'm not sure why CAM didn't provide 334's somewhat unique tall style of "MARINES". If you don't mind me asking, why the grey rudder and no black anti-glare area ahead of the windscreen?

I've also always liked those markings. Any idea of a time frame for the release? Thanks.

Although VMFA-334 Falcons has been covered before, the falcon insignia in particular was somewhat lacking in any scale until now.

What am I missing?  These seem to be the exact same decals for the different years?   Is there a variance I'm not seeing??   :shrug:

I assume you mean the Vietnam vs Japan version. The only difference is the intake marking that has the name, falcon caricature, and plane captain name.

Don't recall. Probably the CAM decals (yes, THREE sets) showed that configuration? I'm not always the most reference-oriented modeler, and tend to follow whatever I'm handed.
