Belcher Bits has released decal sheets to cover all CF-104
Starfighters in Canadian service at any time during its operational
career between 1962 and 1985. The same subjects are covered in both the 1/72 and 1/48 scale sheets.
full decal sheet is supplemented with another sheet one-third of its
size. A tiny sheet with extra unit markings is also included in the 1/48
scale offering. The
decals are well printed with very thin carrier film. Registration is
perfect, and the colours look good.

national and unit markings adds interest too.
This decal set will be a nice way to customise your Revell or
