Yellow Wing Decals 1/32 F3F-3 Bi-Plane Decal First Look
|Date of Review||January 2007||Manufacturer||Yellow Wing Decals|
|Set Number||32003||Pros||Markings for three aircraft and data to replicate the markings for two squadrons|
Yellow Wing Decals has released its third decal set in 1/32 scale. This set takes care of one of my favorite kits from my early days of modeling - the Monogram 1/32 F3F-3.
This set provides markings for aircraft from VF-5 off the USS Yorktown and VF-6 off of USS Enterprise. The aircraft covered in this set are:
- F3F-3, 1451, VF-5, 5-F-7, USS Yorktown, May 1939
- F3F-3, 1454, VF-5, 5-F-10, USS Yorktown, May 1939
- F3F-3, 1451, VF-6, 6-F-15, USS Enterprise, Aug 1940
The instructions that are included in this set provide not only the colors and decal placement for the three examples, the flipside of each profile contains a table of aircraft numbers and associated bureau numbers so that you can replicate any of the aircraft in either squadron.
Yellow Wing Decals can be purchased directly from their website at www.yellow-wingsdecals.com.
My sincere thanks to Yellow Wing Decals for this review sample!
