and some early S's. the first 43 were delivered sans slats. upgraded later they often refered to as Super J's. the slimers is the thing to look for in this: no slimer its a J. slimers its a S with VMFA-451 or 232 in 79-80.  i think VMFA-333 as well, still researching that one.

I like that first VF-74 20th Anniversary photo. While it's nothing too gawdy, I'd like to see that made into scale model decal form. The spook on the tail is cool. Sadly without crew/plane capt names, nobody would touch it.

There is a very old decal sheet out there somewhere for it have a copy somehere in the externsl HD. Will look it up when i get home and see if i can tell you who made it. Or you can wait until i make tgas from several photos to slap on a TW model (J to be specific). Can forward then if you want, but it will be a bit

The VF-33 from Independence brought back memories.  I was on that cruise with them and controlled them on many occasions.
