DECAL REVIEW


Furball Aero-Design 48-004
F-8 Stencils and Data
1:48 Scale

 

vol_2_image

This 2015 release from Furball Aero-Design provides two full sets of airframe stencils and national insignia for two 1:48 F-8 Crusaders.  The decals span full sets of anti-skid walkways, gun ports, No Step, No Push, static vents, hoist point marks, ejection seat warning triangles, and rescue arrows.  A nice touch is the “make your own BuNo” where one can combine stencils for the F-8C, D, E, H, J, and RF-8G with individual bureau numbers, so literally F-8 can be represented.

Printed with precision by Catograf of Italy, there are no higher quality printed decals on the market.

The decal sheet itself is comprehensive. The only thing missing would be the yellow F-8 Crusader canopy framing, though Furball 48-009 has modelers covered there.

Though the packaging says “F-8E Stencil & Data,” there are marking here that can be adapted to any gull gray over white F-8 beyond the customizable BuNo options. These also can be used on any 1:48 F-8 Crusader, from the Hasegawa to Monogram family of kits and more.  

Highly recommended!
