Wolfpak Decals sheet 72-094 "Shaken & Stirred" provides markings for a number of aircraft, including an OA-37B from the 103rd TASS, F-22A from the 525th FS, the YA-7F prototype and an MQ-9B from the 196th RS. The airframes are:

  • OA-37B 73-1094 from the 103rd TASS of the Pennsylvania ANG based at Willow Grove NAS during April 1987. It was painted in the EURO 1 scheme comprising dark Green FS34092, dark grey FS36081 and medium green FS34102 (note that the camouflage scheme diagram provided is incorrect as it relates to a different scheme!) All marking were in black and the aircraft carried "PA" tailcodes;
  • F-22A-30-LM 06-4115 from the 525th FS based at Elmendorf AFB during  October 2011. It was painted in the standard two-tone grey Raptor scheme with all markings in contrasting grey and carried light grey "AK 525 FS" tail markings;
  • YA-7F prototype 71-0344 at Edwards AFB during 1990, painted in the two-tone grey scheme comprising Gunship Grey FS26118 and Neutral Grey FS26270, with all markings are in black. Two different sets of tail markings are provided - the original contract testing markings from Spring 1990 which comprised "YA-7F" tail markings, and the operational test markings from Fall 19970 which comprised "ED" tail codes with a blue tailband outlined in white and containing white "X"s;
  • MQ-9B 11-4166 from the 196th RS of the California ANG during August 2014 at March ARB. It was painted in a two tone scheme comprising Light Ghost Grey FS36375 and Dark Mod Eagle Grey (FS36176). Markings were black and the airframe carried black "CA" tailcodes and blue tailfin bands containing "California" in white script.

The instructions are in the usual Wolfpak format: a color side view of each aircraft and small black-and-white camouflage diagrams (see above note re the OA-37 scheme), together with detailed unit history, weapons loadout and color information.

The decals are printed by Fantasy Printshop in good register.
