Good day all.
I’m requesting some VX-23 decals for a 1/72 scale aircraft that you will not be using in the near future. Thanks in advance.

Who the heck builds 1/72?

Dan, I don’t think any 1/72 VX-23 decals exist, other than maybe (and this is a really BIG maybe) a T-45 on a Caracal sheet. I know they did the T-45 in 1/48, and may have done it in 1/72 as well. There are 1/48 sheets for the T-45, F-14, and F-18A-F, but that’s all that I know of. There were a couple of ancient sheets that included some NATC/SATD jets (A-4M on an old Microscale sheet and an F-4J on a sheet that I think came from the UK many moons ago, and Hasegawa boxed their 1/72 FA-18A as “D’Skunk” which was an SATD jet, but that’s all I’ve ever seen.

To echo what Joe said, I don’t know of anyone who has done 1/72 scale VX-23 markings, especially the NavAir “Lazy Boy” tell markings. Got several 1/48 scale but no 1/72.

A search for “VX-23” on Scalemates turns up the following sheets:
Caracal T-45 sheet
Model Alliance T-45 sheet
Wolfpack sheet with an OA-4M
Caracal F-35 sheet
The Scalemates search engine is actually pretty powerful so long as the records themselves are accurate. You can even do searches specific Bu.No.s.
