Biullseye Model Aviation has released a decal set, Desert Storm Vipers II, covering a whopping 34 marking options for F-16 A/C Vipers.
The decals are designed for the Tamiya 1/48 scale kits.
The set includes markings for all the units who fought in Desert Storm except Hill and Moody. These are covered in an earlier release.
The subjects on this new release were adorned with a wide range of artwork. These are beautifully reproduced and will result in some very unique Vipers on your display shelves.
Most of the F-16s are finished in the standrd three-colour grey scheme but one striking Viper wears a desert-toned tan and brown camouflage.
Decals are beautifully printed by Catrograf.
The main decal sheet is 12" x 8.5".
The second decal sheet containing stencils and national markings is 6.75" x 5".
Instructions are supplied on 13 double-sided letter-sized sheets. They are as well researched and thorough as you would expect from Bullseye, and this subject is particularly dear to the heart of Mr Bullseye himself, Scott Brown.
Two side views, small reference photos and scrap view illustrations of each subjects are included.
Also supplied are two very useful pages dedicated to weapons configuration. This is a great idea and something that I wish was included with more modern aircraft decal sheets.
A further three pages describe the characteristics of the F-16A Block 10, F-16C Block 25 and F-16C Block 30.
The instructions are rounded out with a page of history and acknowledgements, and a full-page stencil guide.
This is an extensively researched, high quality offering from Bullseye that will be warmly welcomed by Viper fans in general and Desert Storm aviation aficionados in particular.
Available from Sprue Brothers in the US and The 48ers overseas.
Thanks to Bullseye Model Aviation for the sample.
