First Look

Furball Aero-Design has been designing some interesting decal magic recently. In addition to their colorful aircraft decal supersets, they've provided decal-based intake trunk colors, maintenance stencil sets, and these canopy seal sets. Here is the latest which provides the distinctive white pressurization seals visible around the edges of F9F Cougar canopies and windscreens.

F9F-8 Cougar White Canopy Framing

This set is sized for the Kitty Hawk 1/48 F9F-8 Cougar kit and provide a nice clean outline to add that additional detail to your project. This decal set provides two complete seal sets so you can tackle two different Cougar projects or simply have a spare set 'just in case'.

Stop by their website and try a set of these or other canopy seal set for your next project.

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