First Look

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.

F/A-18C F/A-18C

In this release, we have some magnificent Tigermeet tail art applied to a Swiss AF Hornet. The subject of this set is: F/A-18C, J-5011, 11 Staffel, Swiss AF.

While the majority of the airframe wears standard markings and stencils, the inside and outside of the vertical stabilizers are carrying the breathtaking Tiger artwork that was applied by 11 Staffel for the 2011 Tigermeet.

This set is rendered on three decal sheets.

If you're looking for a very distinctive set of markings for the Academy 1/32 F/A-18C kit, this is the set you've been waiting for. Definitely recommended!
