Tomcat Help
 
I was working on a Project I traced some Lantirn pods and my question is it at the right place on the Aircraft and is it the right size. Any help would be great.

The National insignia looks about right according to this photo.
Move the Pukin' Dawg forward slightly
Modex on nose should be slightly larger

Dan, this might help a little better with the pod size.

Fuel tank stripes are going the wrong direction. Check out the picture in the link given.
They go from forward top to bottom aft. (:

anybody know when vf-154 started using the lantirn pod?

My guess is probably about 1998 or something like that. Was introduced to the fleet about 1996 I think off the top of my head, or that may have been testing.

thanks. i spent some time on google at lunch this morning, found where it said they started the transition in the 1997-1998 timeframe.
