VF-111 F-14A Paint Schemes

I've got an F-14A Tomcat in the works and am planning on making it a VF-111 bird. Decals are incredibly hard to come by. I do have a Hasegawa set from a generous fellow modeler, but am slightly concerned with yellowing of the white and their age (i.e., they may just shatter).

I see FTD 48075...the next release, will include VF-111 as in the links below:

These decals aren't out yet, but at the rate I build I expect they will be by the time I'm ready for them (another pictures includes a 2/1/15 date...not too far off)

While I won't be ready for decals for a while, I have a couple of white intakes ready for their second color (i.e. 16440 or 36375 for TPS). What I am hoping to verify is if the bird is in the overall 16440 "light gull gray" scheme or the later TPS scheme. Based on the 1994 time frame and the profile, it looks like TPS. I believe this picture below is also TPS, although overall everything looks very light:

Would anyone be able to help provide input regarding this? Thanks for any help.
