Default LG 1/48 Tomcat decals - VF-1 Wolfpack

I've got a sparkly new Tamiya Tomcat and want to do an early VF-1 scheme (mid to late '70s). Having a very difficult time finding decals for that scheme and era.

Anyone got any leftovers from a sheet they'd be willing to part with?

Fightertown made a set.

Thanks Chris!
Yeah, "made" seems to be the operative word there. I've been looking high and low and can't find a source that a) will ship to Australia or b) doesn't cost almost as much as the kit.

Scratch that:
http://www.fightertowndecals.com/ind...&product_id=54

So, they do exist and they appear to be available. Shipping isn't crazy but it's not cheap either. Total cost will be half what I paid for the kit. Hmmm...

And from LuckyModel as well: http://www.luckymodel.com/scale.aspx?item_no=FTD-48014

Man, I'm sure I searched before! *Smacks forehead*

Thanks Sid.

Glad they're available. Looks like not a whole lot for the price, compared to FighterTown. Me thinks the VF-1 markings are going to be back in vogue with the release of this Tamiya kit.
