The F-100 is a jet with classic lines and it's intake that looks like a sharks mouth ready to bite.  The F-100 served with the French Air Force with a variety of schemes from bare metal to jungle camo.  This sheet gives 6 choices of markings that all include artwork of some type including squadron markings etc.  The decals are contained on one decal sheet and are very finely printed on decals that are thin but will provide excellent colour coverage.  These decals are designed for the 1/32 scale Trumpeter kit that is due to be released in the summer of 2007.

The printing quality of these decal sheet is on a very high quality.

I'm very excited about this decal sheet and the new releases from Spada decals that will include the following sheets.

  • SD-32008M - 1/32 F-100D Super Sabre Bare Metal Birds
  • SD-32008C - 1/32 F-100D Super Sabre Camouflaged Aircraft
  • SD-32005 - 1/32 P-47D Razorback Thunderbolts
