looking for decals 1/48 F-15C 71st FS "Ironmen"
Posted by ncc1762 on Monday, August 13, 2018 4:40 PM

I am looking to build an F-15C for my brother in law who recently retired

His request was for the 71st FS "Ironmen" he flew tail# 83-0012

Any thoughts on how to proceed would be greatly appreciated

So far, I'm having a hard time finding decal set for your in-law's squadron. The only one I managed to find through Bing search was Two Bobs Decal set. I clicked on the website source but it appears it no longer has it in stock.

Maybe someone on FSM forums might have spare decals to give you. I will keep searching though.

If you Google the tail number of this bird, you get a lot of returns because she is apparently still in service. Finding photos of her in 71st FS colors is a little trickier. The URL below is to an image of the plane with the 71st in 2003:

What scale are you looking at?

He‘s looking for in 1/48 scale. I’ve done the search on the FS but there is a decal set what he’s looking for at Two Bobs. Apparently, it’s no longer available. Ultracast.com doesn’t even carry it anymore.

This is what I managed to find after doing a search of the decal set. As you can see, it is by Two Bobs Decals that is no longer available. I even search in Two Bobs website and didn't see it there.

Thanks to all for the awesome help

I have time ...I just started the build and being old and feeble will take me several weeks to finish

I may email 2 bobs and see if they can figure something out or try and find the Sq badge somewhere
