F-100 Super Sabre 32nd Fighter Sqn USAFE, Soesterberg, The Netherlands
A nice and certainly interesting decalset for this Trumpeter 1/32 F-100 Super Sabre, incidentally not a cheap model.
It gives you the opportunity to build the F-100C FW-871 around 1959 with the already more or less known red white blue tail, which crashed. To make a diorama of it, there are two photos of this crashed aircraft in the two-page instruction booklet.
Second possibility is to build the F-100C FW-884 from 1956 and you guessed right this one also crashed (1 photo).
Perhaps there are more photos in the Wolfhound literature. Or you might try Google.
There are no American "rosettes" included in the kit, but they come with the model, as well as any other standard inscriptions and markings.
With the set you can build one of the machines and note that there are two separate sets with small decals in the packaging. To fit the standard zip bag from Dutch Decal, the set has been cut in half.
Makes a nice model of this F-100 possible with a Dutch touch. I will consult with the boss again if an early Christmas gift is not possible because I have already had my birthday.
Thanks to Dutch Decal for making it available for review.
