Starfighter Decals has released this nice decal set for the HobbyBoss 1/72 Panther kit. This set provides all of the markings you'll need for three kits.
This decal set provides markings for the following three subjects:
- F9F-2, 125127, VF-51, S/116, USS Essex, 1951-52, as flown by Ens. Neil Armstrong
- F9F-3, 123071, VF-51, S/109, USS Valley Forge, 1950, as flown by Lt(jg) Len Plog, Yak-7 kill
- F9F-2B, unknown, VF-111, V/209, 1950, as flown by Lt.Cdr Amen
This is a really nice update for this kit and the instructions point out other aftermarket resources which can help to further detail and tailor your subject.
You can purchase these decals directly from Starfighter Decals on their website.
My sincere thanks to Starfighter Decals for this review sample!
