First Look

Hi-Decal Line is back with another four unique subjects. This set depicts four F-86F Block 25/30 Sabres that have the Block 40 wing. This set is recommended for the Revell AG or Hasegawa kits. The aircraft covered in this sheet are:

This set will provide some distinctive camouflage and markings for your Revell or Hasegawa 1/48 F-86F kits and this set is also available in 1/72 as 72064. Note that this set does require you to overlay one or more decals to replicate national insignias.

Hi-Decal Line are available from many online retailers.

My sincere thanks to Hi-Decal Line for this review sample!
