Bestfong Decals 1/48 F-16A 6677 in ROCAF Service Decal First Look
|Date of Review||August 2014||Manufacturer||Bestfong Decals|
|Subject||F-16A 6677 in ROCAF Service||Scale||1/48|
|Set Number||48049||Pros||Colorful schemes|
|Cons||Multi-layer decals||Skill Level||Basic|
Here is a new decal series (at least to me) from Bestfong Decals in Taiwan. This release covers F-16A 6677 in RoCAF service. Don't be fooled by the A-model designation, this is a Block 20 airframe which is the same configuration as all of the NATO F-16A MLU aircraft including the advanced IFF antennas on the nose, landing lights on the nose gear door, etc.
This set provides the markings and stencils you'll need for 6677 in its high-visibility markings including the optional Flying Tigers 70th anniversary shield on the tail. The only caution is that the national markings and unit emblems are dual layer decals, so care must be taken accordingly.
This is an interesting scheme that will look great on your favorite MLU or Block 20 Viper (with the parabrake housing at the base of the tail) like the Kinetic Models F-16A NATO kit. For more information on this and other decal sets in their catalog, look here.
My sincere thanks to Bestfong Decals for this review sample!
