Close up of the port tail. The stiffening plate is a vinyl applique made by Flying Leatherneck models, and another is applied to the inside of the starboard tail. The square bolts at the bottom of the tail is made from strip styrene cut to small squares. The AJ tail code is from a Hasegawa F-18A kit, and yellowed slightly after application, which was very disappointing. The kit decals had AC tail codes, from VFA-15s MAG-12 assignment era, so they were not suitable. Carrier name, Bureau Number, and Tail Number were custom designed and printed. NAVY stencil comes from the Microscale 'NAVY and MARINE' low-viz sheet. All other stencil information were from the Microscale F-18 low-viz grey stencil sheet.
