FirstLook

This decal set, produced by DXM, who have previously released some really interesting Japanese Defence Force anniversary schemes, is an interesting set of schemes for the one F-15J/DJ Squadron’s over a period of time.

 

 

The decals are printed by Cartograf, so you know they are of the best quality and will ultimately go down well on your model.

There are 2 A5 sheets and one small sheet of decals that cover 3 different anniversary or display schemes of the 201st TWS JASDF aircraft.

 

 

The aircraft covered are:

  • 62-8873 F-15J Chitose AB Festival 2012

  • 52-8860 F-15J 201st TFS 30th Anniversary 2015

  • 92-8094 F-15DJ 201st TFS 30th Anniversary 2015

Detail is crisp and appear to be in perfect register. Many of the decals are quite large, especially the large paw print for the top of scheme 3 and will need care in their placement to ensure minimum moving to reduce the risk of tearing.

The instructions have most adequate detail on them, with colour call outs for Gunze Mr Color, Humbrol and where possible FS Standards numbers.

The decals are sized for the Hasegawa kits I believe (nothing written) but I’m sure they will fit on the Tamiya and Great Wall / Pit Road kits kit as well.


 

Conclusion

 

This is a very nice decal sheet with 3 interesting schemes. I like that it covers the F-15J and DJ and if you have a bit of an F-15J obsession this set will give you three very nice marking options.

Thanks to DXM for the samples.
