MAW Decals | 32-MAW004: 1/32 F/A-18D
Reviewed by Chris Sherland
MAW Decals has released a follow up to their first "Double D" sheet covering two more F/A-18D in 1/32.
While not including a full reference CD like the initial release, this set retails for under $10 USD. The decals are very well-printed by Micro-Scale on two separate sheets (one for the lo-vis bird, and another for the high-vis ship) from excellent artwork with crisp detail and accurate, rich color.
Many of the insignia on the high vis Hornet are made from multiple decals and will require some care to apply, but the result will be a beautiful model.
The instructions are simple but clear and cover the multi-part images very well. They also give warning of specific lot/block details on each aircraft for accurate assembly.
