Starfighter Decals has released this interesting set of F4F-3 Wildcats in 1/72 scale perfect for the Hasegawa F4F-4 kit using the Quickboost F4F-3 wings. These markings provide a nice cross-section of early war markings worn by these Grumman fighters.
This decal set provides markings for four aircraft:
- F4F-3, 1863, VF-4, 4-F-1, World's Fair, 1940
- F4F-3, 1848, VF-42, 42-F-2, USS Ranger, 1940
- F4F-3, 3872, VF-72, 72-F-7, US Naval Aviation Museum
- F4F-3, 2527, VF-42, 42-F-8, Chambers Field, NAS Norfolk, 1940
This sheet provides sufficient markings for 2-3 aircraft. The instructions are in color and will also help identify some of the color and detail variations for each of these subjects.
You can purchase these decals directly from Starfighter Decals on their website.
My sincere thanks to Starfighter Decals for this review sample!
