Decal option #1is very interesting.....it's a F-18A with VFA-127 "Desert Bogeys", US Navy in Iraqi Fulcrum Aggressor Camouflage out of NAS Fallon, Nevada from 1993.  This is a sand / brown desert paint scheme, but the really cool part is the little Iraqi flags at the top of the vertical Stabilizers.  Funny how painting the nose black on an F-18 can dramatically change it's appearance to look more like an aggressor  plane.  Tan stencils are included in this decal sheet.
Decal option # 2 is an F-18C with VFA-192 "World Famous Golden Dragons" with the US Navy aboard the USS Independence in the Pacific Ocean in 1994. This is a one colour US Navy Ghost Grey paint scheme with a "Golden" Dragon on the outsides of the vertical stabilizers

Decal option #3 is for a Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) F-18A.  This F-18A Hornet "Cobra" with No3 Sqn., No.81 Wing out of Williamtown Air Base, New South Wales in October 1987 has the usual 2 tome grey paint scheme with the hopping "Roo" on the sides.  The reason this plane is referred to as "Cobra" is because of the big Cobra snake mouth under the nose.  The mouth comes with forked tongue and fangs as well as eyes above the mouth.  All in all an interesting RAAF F-18A......RAAF decal options tend to be rare, so to find one on a decal sheet is a bit of a highlight. 

Nationality markings (hereinafter: insignia) on US Air Force planes were used for the first time in 1916, during the suppression of the so-called Pancho Villa's rebellion in Mexico. Interestingly, they only showed a red star - confusingly similar to those that were later used on Soviet machines. However, in the period from May 1917 to February 1918, a white star was used as the insignia of American airplanes in a circular blue field with a red circle in the center. This designation returned in 1919 and was used until 1942. In May this year, the insignia was changed by removing the red circle in the center, due to the possibility of confusion with the Japanese military aircraft markings. During Operation Torch, in November 1942, a yellow dust jacket was applied around the blue field of the white star. However, in the summer of 1943, the white star in the blue field received white ribbons on both sides, and from August 1943 until January 1947 - blue dust jackets were added to the ribbons. In January 1947, the official designation of USAF aircraft was introduced, which is actually valid to this day (2019) - a white star on a blue background, with two ribbons in a blue dust jacket with a single horizontal red stripe on each ribbon. In the 1980s, the low visibility insignia were introduced, i.e. insignia with the graphic layout of the insignia but painted with a uniform white, black or gray paint.
