EXPERTS CHOICE DECALS 48-053
F-84E/G USAFE Skyblazers 1951/1952/1954

Retail price: $11.95

The Tamiya F-84G, and now the Pro-Modeler F-84G, being the current definitive 1/48th scale kits of the subject, are worthy subjects of aftermarket decals. Experts Choice has released (at the time of this writting) three decal sheets for these kits. This is their third F-84 sheet.

DECAL REVIEW

The instruction sheet with these Experts Choice decals from Bare Metal Foil state they are designed to fit both the Tamiya and the Pro-Modeler 1/48th scale Thunderjet kits. The two sheets include the decals necessary to model one of three schemes the Skyblazers used during the years 1951, 1952, and 1954. They are: F-84E-10-RE #49-2233, 22nd FBS, 36th FBG, 12th AF (USAFE), Furstenfeldbrück, Germany, 1951; F-84G-5-RE #51-1065, 36th FBW, aircraft on loan from Bergstrom AFB (SAC), Detroit Air Show, August 1952; F-84G-25-RE #51-16669, 48th FBW, 12th AF (USAFE), Chaumont, France, 1954.

What can I say, these decals are a 10. Want an F-84 in Skyblazers colors? Here they are. They even include "bonus emblems" for a display base or coffee cup!

This Experts Choice decal set is priced at $11.95 for two sheets, compared to $6.95 for the AeroMaster sets which include two sheets. A little more pricey perhaps, but still a solid 10, especially if they do fit the Pro-Modeler kit.
