This new decal sheet set from Hobby
dry transfer stencils and water-slide decals for the 1/48 F-4 J VX-4
Vandy 1 "Black Bunny" from Oct 1972.
Full sized 1/1 aircraft
have their stencils painted on using paint stencils. Regular
decals are ink printed on a clear carrier film....which is fine, but
they are not as accurate in look and application as dry transfers for
certain applications such as stencils. This set gives you the
perfect combination of decals to do this jet up to obtain maximum
transfers are reverse printed on a temporary clear film.
When you apply the stencils you lay the back of the stencils on
the painted surface of the model and then burnish (rub) them down
through the clear temporary carrier film. The dry transfer
sticks to the model and dis-engages from the clear carrier film.
The beauty of dry transfers is on models with bare metal finishes.
On bare metal finishes you do not have any clear carrier film as
you would have with regular decals and this also applies to
painted areas as well. The decals are
beautifully printed on 8 decal sheets. One complete set of
stencils is included on this decal sheet....WOW.....so many
stencils.....even stencils for the weapons pods are included!!!
The dry transfers
are very clearly printed and will replicate the actual stencils on
this 1/1 F-4 perfectly and the water slide decals will perfectly
replicate the larger painted markings on this jet.
This decal set includes 3
types of decals.
- Dry transfers were
printed by Hobbydecal.com
- National insignia and
red bands were printed by Cartograf and are applied as water slide
- Blue bands with stars
and black walkway lines are water slide decals, but were printed on
clear decal film, so you will need to trim each markings before
