Fantasy Printshop | Euro Decals ED-32131 North American F-100D Super Sabre Collection Part 1
Reviewed by Iain Ogilvie
This new, 2 sheet, set from Fantasy Printshop provides some colourful natural metal options for all those Trumpeter F-100D kits lurking in peoples stash piles.
Some really lovely schemes are featured here - the challenge will be which one to choose!
Quality appears top notch, as we've come to expect from Fantasy Printshop, with good colour density and perfect register, along with a thin and absolutely minimal varnish layer.
I've recently used a set of Fantasy Printshop decals on my build of the Flying Start Models Slingsby T31B TX.3 Cadet glider - and they behaved flawlessly.
As with other sheets in the range, printing is on a blue ground making it easier to see all the white printed areas.
Four options are included:
- F-100D 56-3433 of the 352nd Tactical Fighter Squadron, 354th Tactical Fighter Wing USAF, Myrtle Beach Air Force Base, South Carolina, 1959
- F-100D 56-3404 of the 27th Tactical Fighter Wing, 832nd Air Division, USAF, Cannon Air Force Base, New Mexico, 1959
- F-100D 56-3307 of the 417th Tactical Fighter Squadron, 50th Tactical Fighter Wing USAF, Ramstein Air Base, West Germany, 1959
- F-100D 55-3775 of the 615th Tactical Fighter Squadron, 401st Tactical Fighter Wing USAF, England Air Force Base, Louisiana, 1958
Printed in colour, the set includes detailed placement instruction that include the relevant Federal Standard colour references, as well as Humbrol, Xtracolour, Xtracrylix and Lifecolour equivalents.
This is a really nice set of decals for the F-100D Super Sabre , with no shortage of colour!
This sheet is available directly from Fantasy Printshop.
Our thanks to Ray Horwell at Fantasy Printshop for the review sample.
