Does anyone make a decal sheet for the awesome A-4 aggressors from this YouTube video? 1/48? I know there's numerous aggressor schemes but I've never seen this overall (gunship?) gray with the light gray stencils. Sharp!

At any rate, the video itself is pretty cool too...

Fightertown Decals 48-027 includes markings for a TA-4J from VA-127 in overall 36081 gray, with light ghost gray markings, light blue "01" modex, and a small full-color squadron zap on the tail.  Close enough?

I have some left over home made decals for a 1/48 TA-4J from VC-12.  This particular jet was flown by "PEACHES" and "KILLER BARBIE" out of Oceana.  Ping me at mcleodpilot@cfl.rr.com if interested.  Here are pix of the finished model:

Nice ACM pod on the grey bird, but why aren't these QTA-4J's red-orange like most drones ??  LOL !!! 

Great photos and computer work !!! 

How  did yo do the short CL flue tank aft end ?  In my 1/48 I used an F-15 radar dish !!

Hmmmm...can't remember.  I cut off the aft end where the fairing/fins would bolt on then found some round items that seemed to fit in the tapered aft end and look appropriate.  If I recall it was and old fuel tank from a 1/48 SH-2D chopper model and the front end was hemispherical and it all worked out ok.
