Types Featured F-102A

Draw Decal sheet 72s-F102-4 contains markings for 4 F-102As from Northeastern ANG units and covers Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania and Vermont ANG aircraft. The aircraft featured are as follows:-

Draw Decal are unusual in using Silk Screening for the decals. This makes them thicker than normal transfers but they are beautifully detailed and in perfect register. The artwork for this sheet was designed by Norm Filer, a well-known figure in modelling circles, and this shows.

Two sets of National Insignia are provided, but there are no anti-glare panels for the nose or intakes.

Instructions comprise side views of the above airframes and top and bottom views, together with stencilling instructions and a copy of the relevant page from T.O. 1-1-4.

Note that airframes up to 56-1317 had the Case X wing, with 'upturned' wingtips, whilst those from 56-1318 onwards had the Case XX wing with 'downturned' wingtips. Not all of the aircraft on this sheet have the earlier Case X wing so choosing carefully is a must!
