First Look

Furball Aero-Design has released their latest decal set, this time providing a convenient way to apply precision red warning markings on the edges of the landing gear doors. This set is sized to work with the Academy kit. If you want a set to finish the Hasegawa kit, you want this set.


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!
