Furball Aero-Design has reissued their F-4B Bravo MiG Killers Part One decal super set, providing a great selection of US Navy MiG-killer F-4B Phantoms for the Academy 1/48 kit. This set provides 14 different subjects complete with airframe stenciling and walkways enough for two kits. This set will also work well with the Hasegawa kits.

The sheet is printed by Cartograf and the printing is very well done. What's more, none of these decals require the modeler to stack multiple layers of markings atop one another to recreate artwork. This trend by some other decal companies of producing multiple-layer decals is unfortunate as it puts the burden on you to do the work of what should have been done by the decal maker.

My sincere thanks to Furball Aero-Design for this review sample!
