The aircraft presented in this set include:

  • F.27, C-5, KLU 75th Anniversary Scheme, 1988
  • F-27, FF-3, Finnish AF, 2011
  • F.27, 5-2602, Islamic Republic of Iran Navy, 2015

This set includes the more visible airframe markings as well as all of the national and distinctive markings for each of the three schemes. This set is printed by Microscale and all of the markings are produced as single layers so you don't have to stack multiple decals to reproduce a given marking. If you've been considering a Fokker for your scale flightline, these colorful schemes will worth having at least one on your shelf.

My sincere thanks to Caracal Models for this review sample!
