Flightdecs is an online retailer specializing in decals. Now they have
introduced their own brand of decals. These will be limited run releases
focusing on esoteric aircraft schemes.
Flightdecs' first home-grown offering is "US jets in Yugoslav Air
Force" in 1/48 scale.
aircraft are covered in this set:
T-33A in natural metal with red "arctic
T-33A in natural metal with yellow and black
diagonal stripes on the undersurfaces.
F-84G (my personal favorite) in dark grey and
olive green uppersurfaces over PRU Blue undersurfaces
F-84G in natural metal with red arctic
F-86E(M) in natural metal with black shark
F-86D in natural metal with diving vulture
unit emblem. This aircraft may be depicted in three different finishes.
F-86D in natural metal with a dark blue
forward fuselage and shark's mouth painted on the nose.
The decals are well printed. The film is very thin, colour saturation
looks good and registration on my sample is perfect. Sufficient national
markings and fin flashes are provided for two complete aircraft.
The instructions are also produced to a high standard. A long 42.5cm x
21cm sheet contains colour artwork of the side, top and bottom view of
each aircraft. The green and grey Thunderjet includes colour views of both
sides of the aircraft to permit a totally accurate camouflage pattern. A
colour chart and brief text description of each aircraft is also included.
These new decals from Flightdecs will provide some interesting
variation for your 1/48 scale pre-Century series jets.
