Product Article by Steve Bamford on Dec 27 04

Here's a sheet that is sure to please the fans of colour birds.

This sheet includes the markings for one F/A-18C with the FA-82 Marauders.  This scheme was painted by AM1 James Ptacnik of VFA-82.  James also designed as well as painted this paint scheme.  The Two Bobs also wanted me to thanks Greg Davis, Don Schoemer and Mile Wellinghurst for the pictures they provided for this paint scheme.

Painting this scheme on your model is pretty straight forward.  Paint the grey....then the blue tails and apply the decals after your gloss coat over the paint.  All stripes on the centreline fuel tank and other such markings are all included as decals.

The decals are contained on two decal sheets and are flawlessly printed and in perfect register.  No stencils were worn by this bird so of course none are included on the decal sheet.

The 2 pages of instructions include 4 view colour drawings showing camo scheme and decal placement.  Paint colours are listed in FS#'s as well as Humbrol, Testors, Gunze Sangyo and Xtracolor. 

 

A very pleasing decal sheet and highly recommended for anyone interested US colour birds.  I'd like to thank Twobobs for the review sample.

This sheet is available through http://www.twobobs.net/ and select US Hobby Shops.  Overseas customers can purchase these from Twobobs site or through Twobobs network of overseas distributors.  Remember, shipping is always FREE to US Customers at Twobobs!!
