F -14 Tomcat usually gets all the Glory, but there are other aircraft that
served equally important roles. Starfighter Decals helps address
that with this new set. If you want to model the Nimitz during 1980 or
during the hostage crisis, this set is exactly what you need.
This is item #350-108s VA-35 Black Panthers A-6E TRAM 1980 listed for $12.00 US. You can get this decal set from Starfighter Decals. Check the webpage for more details.
