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.

One 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.

Four double-sided sheets are required for the instructions and marking placements. Eight subjects are featured, but any Canadian Starfighter from any era may be modelled using the generic serials and the abundant unit markings. Many modellers will be attracted to the unmistakable Tiger Meet schemes described on the instruction sheet.

The schemes include green, natural metal and low-viz green and grey. The variation of national and unit markings adds interest too.

This decal set will be a nice way to customise your Revell or Hasegawa Starfighters.

Recommended.

Thanks to Mike from Belcher Bits for the review sample.
