Bullseye Model Aviation presents details of their next two 1/48 scale release covering the F-4B Phantom II.
The decals have been designed for the forthcoming Tamiya kit.
These will be exclusively available in the USA from Sprue Brothers and elsewhere internationally from The 48ers:

Fleet Phantoms II - Item No. 48-018
Sheet #2 covers:
"Old Nick 201" VF-111 CO jet, 1972 WestPac cruise, USS Coral Sea. These markings differ slightly from the Tamiya kit as it represents the accurate markings from the MiG-17 kill mission of LT Garry L. Weigand and LTJG William C. Freckleton, March 6, 1972.
"Silver Kite 201" VF-92 CO jet, 1968 WestPac cruise, USS Enterprise

All of these aircraft save for the VF-32 jet on 48-017 are equipped with the forward facing AN/APR-30 RHAW antenna and the rear ALQ-51/100 jammer on the fin. This is the only option in the kit unless you hack them off.
The VF-32 jet is equipped with the short lived forward facing AN/APR-24.
A plain fin tip and one with the AN/APR-24 will be available shortly in a 3D printed part.
These will be available from Sprue Brothers in the US and The 48ers overseas.
