Very nice  :smiley:

The multi coloured tail decals, I've got a sheet with something similar, for a Viking IIRC. Did that squadron re-equip to those at a later date ?

Kitnut,

The Squadron with the multi-coloured tails is VF-194 - which is a fighter Squadron (Fighter Squadron 194).  A Viking Squadron would be VS something, so I doubt it.  Perhaps just adopted similar markings.

Quite often some squadrons had "rainbow"markings on their tail - particularly the rudder - of their "CAG BIRD"(often their 00 aircraft, 100, 200, 300 etc).

I assume most are aware of the Air Wing numbering system?
