FirstLook

 

Cutting Edge has introduced another fine quality decal sheet depicting schemes for F100D Super Sabres nicknamed the Hun. This is the first sheet in the limited edition series.

The decals are designed for the Trumpeter 1/32 scale kit. The decals are superbly printed with good colour saturation and excellent register. As usual the carrier film is ultra thin and my experience with Cutting Edge decals that I have used in the past is that the decals have to be handled carefully and snuggle down into the surface detail well. I always use decal setting solution but this is not necessary. The carrier film then almost totally disappears under a coat of clear.

Very few data decals are provided so you may need to refer to the kit decal sheets for these but full national markings are provided for the aircraft as follows:

  • F-100D-65-NA 56-3000 flown by Col Raymond Toliver who was commander of the 20th TFW based at RAF Wethersfield Essex England in late 1957. This aircraft was finished in overall natural metal with red, yellow and blue trim. Col Raymond Toliver is the co-author of great books such as Horrido which is a bibliography of the top German aces of WWII and The Blond Knight of Germany which is the story of Erich Hartmann.

Highly Recommended
