tim hatton [litespeed] reviews ''Victory Cats, Fighting 84'' 1/46 decal release from Afterburner Decals. This sheet covers twelve F-14As from VF-84 "Jolly Rogers" from the early 80s to the mid 90s.On this sheet there are five CAG birds, four CO jets, and even a one XO gets in on the act. All schemes are covered from 1981 to 1994 including combat and line jets.

Great sheet...

It is only extremely unfortunate that there is only a single set of the yellow edge of the lower fin (underneath the engines)....

This unfortunately takes away a lot of the value of this set, since 5 of 12 schemes use these edges, and these seem to be the only elements missing that prevent one building more than a single aircraft from these 5... A quick look suggests that, if not for this issue, sufficient decals are available to build 2 of 5 high visibility options I guess with careful masking this set can be stretched a lot.
