This sheet from Xtradecal is well timed, with the Trumpeter F-100C kit having been recently released.  This is the first in a number of sheets covering various variants of the F-100, with this one covering the F-100A/C.  The airframes covered are as follows:-

  • F-100C 54-1800, 333 FDS, 4th FDW, Seymour-Johnson AFB, marked for the 1958 Gunnery Meet.  Overall natural metal with red trim

  • F-100C 54-1752, 452nd FDS, 322nd FDW, Foster AFB c. 1956. Overall natural metal with green trim
  • F-100C 54-1873, 188th TFS, New Mexico ANG, October 1972.  Overall ADC Grey (FS16473) with black flashes outlined in yellow
  • F-100C 54-1912, 461st TFS, 36th TFW, Hahn AFB, Germany, october 1958.  Overall natural metal with black/yellow flashes
  • F-100C 54-2031, 120th TFS, 35th TFW, Phan Rang AB, Vietnam during 1958.  Standard South East Asia scheme of Dark Green (FS34079), Medium Green (FS34102), Tan (FS30219) with light grey undersides (FS36622). White VS tailcode
  • The sheet is well printed with everything in register, the decal film itself is thin and there is very little overlap of film.

The instructions are printed in color and comprise left and right views (where needed)  together with upper surface diagrams, color details and additional references.  Decal film is quite thin and register is spot on.
