Mike Posted January 26 Share Posted January 26 North American F-100D Supersabre Collection Pt.2 & Part 3 (ED32-132 & ED32-133) 1:32 Euro Decals by Fantasy Printshop The F-100 began life as a development of the F-86 Sabre with a more sharply swept wing to achieve supersonic speeds, but it evolved into a completely different airframe before it was accepted into service, being much more than just a supersonic Sabre. It fought extensively in Vietnam, then later in Air National Guard (ANG) units as well as some overseas sales. The last airframe flew in US service at the end of the 70s, with the overseas aircraft carrying on for a few more years into the 80s, after which a lot of them found their way into air museums around the world. Fantasy Printshop’s Euro Decals line have created some sheets for the fans of the Hun during its service, including the many ANG units, which often sported colourful markings on their shiny metal airframes. We now have four sheets in the major scales, namely 1:72, 1:48 with identical subjects in each scale, just a change of the size of the sheets and price due to the obvious increase in decal real-estate. These new sheets are filling in the gaps in 1:32 for the larger scale modeller, so while you’re checking out these sets from the links, you may want to also have a look at Part 4, which should be along any minute. Each set arrives in a Ziploc bag with a cover sheet and two pages of A4 colour instructions inside (one side per airframe), plus the two sheets of decals printed on shiny blue decal paper. The common national markings and stencils are printed on the one sheet, while the airframe specific markings are on the other, wider sheet. Each sheet is protected by a sheet of wax paper to keep condensation at bay. North American F-100D Supersabre Collection Part.2 (ED32-132) This set contains decals for the following four subjects: #56-3151 of 481st Tactical Fighter Squadron, 27th Tactical Fighter Wing, United States Air Force, based at Cannon Air Force Base, New Mexico, 1959 #56-3056 of 524th Tactical Fighter Squadron, 27th Tactical Fighter Wing, Unites States Air Force, based at Cannon Air Force Base, New Mexico, 1959 #56-2862 of 454th Fighter Bomber Squadron, 323rd Fighter Bomber Wing, United States Air Force, based at Bunker Hill Air Base, Indiana, 1957 #56-2933 of 1st Fighter Day Squadron, 413th Fighter Day Wing, United States Air Force, based at George Air Force Base, California, 1959 North American F-100D Supersabre Collection Part.3 (ED32-133) In this set you can model the following three subjects: #55-2796 flown by Capt. Robert Maxwell, 511th Tactical Fighter Sqn., 405th Fighter Bomber Wing, US Air Force, Langley Air Force Base, Virginia, US 1959 #55-3558 ‘Stinger’ of 35th Tactical Fighter Sqn., 8th Tactical Fighter Wing, US Air Force, Itzuke Air Force Base, Japan, 1960 #56-3315 flown by Maj. C Jones of 492nd Tactical Fighter Sqn., 48th Tactical Fighter Wing, US Air Force, Chaumont Air Force Base, France, 1959 Conclusion There’s a wide choice of schemes and locations between these two sets, and plenty of assistance with painting the rest of the airframe surrounding the four good-sized profiles that accompanies each decal option. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
