Syh@art Decals is an interesting aftermarket decal producer from France that specializes in those special paint schemes worn by NATO aircraft for Tiger Meet, Anniversary, or special Airshow duties. Most of their decal line is produced in 1/48 and 1/72 scale with selected subjects in 1/32 scale also covered.
In this release, we have one of the Belgian Air Force's anniversary color schemes worn by an F-16A Block 10 Fighting Falcon during the 50th Anniversary of 350 Sqn in 1992. The color scheme is simple yet colorful, plus the added distinctiveness of this particular airframe with the small stabilators of the Blocks 1-10 and the addition of the parabrake housing in the base of the tail.
This subject is reproduced with decals on one sheet and it includes the major warning stencils. The aircraft is painted in the three-tone scheme with the light gray underneath, the medium gray on the nose and tail, and the dark gray is replaced with gloss black. The decal printing is very nicely done and in perfect register.
This is a nice subject that will render an eye-catching Viper between the unique details as well as the anniversary color scheme.
