First Look

Here is a new decal series (at least to me) from Bestfong Decals in Taiwan. This release covers the F-5E/F Tiger II in RoCAF service. This decal set has markings for ten specific subjects from the 737 TFW depicting several different tactical camouflage schemes. As you can see in the images below, this set also provides a set of generic number to replicate other aircraft from that unit as well.

The aircraft in this set:

  • F-5E, 00313, 46 FS/737 TFW, RoCAF, Green/Brown
  • F-5E, 00313, 46 FS/737 TFW, RoCAF, Gray
  • F-5E, 00313, 46 FS/737 TFW, RoCAF, Compass Ghost
  • F-5E, 80874, 46 FS/737 TFW, RoCAF, Gray
  • F-5E, 00313, 7 FS/737 TFW, RoCAF, Compass Ghost
  • F-5F, 81723, 46 FS/737 TFW, RoCAF, Green/Brown
  • F-5F, 00300, 7 FS/737 TFW, RoCAF, Compass Ghost
  • F-5F, 30110, 46 FS/737 TFW, RoCAF, Compass Ghost
  • F-5F, 00290, 7 FS/737 TFW, RoCAF, Gray
  • F-5F, 00290, 46 FS/737 TFW, RoCAF, Gray

The only concern I have with this set is the instruction sheet - the profiles are small enough that you cannot clearly see the serial numbers that you need to build out of the generic number set.

This is another interesting decal set from Bestfong Decals and will provide you with other distinctive options for your favorite F-5E/F kits. For more information on this and other decal sets in their catalog, look here.

My sincere thanks to Bestfong Decals for this review sample!
