CD48094 - RF-84F


Recommended Posts

Got my RF-84 kit today, it's really really nice. I pitched my old heller kit in the sale bin. I'm really excited to build it. Once Kursad's decals for it are released, it's going to be priority one for building.

I will most likely build one or two in Royal Netherlands Air Force markings; one in NMF, the other in camo, but I confess that USAF/ANG options are very colorful and attractive!

It's too bad that the company that prints the kit's decal sheets doesn't do a great job. The sheet was designed by Dutch Decal so had great potential but sadly not printed by the firm that Luke usually uses. The printer that Tanmodel has contracted for the work has let it down, especially in the fineness of the print...

So your sheet will be VERY welcome for the USAF/ANG builders!

Cheers,

Erik.

After a long weekend of trying to fit and arrange things on the sheet, it is now clear that I have enough material for two USAF/ANG sheets. I will probably release the first one this month, and another one afterwards depending on how the first one is received.

The first sheet does not have any Nebraska ANG markings, but the second sheet will have one camouflaged Nebraska jet. The earlier, colorful ANG schemes unfortunately do not seem to be well documented. I was only able to find a couple fuzzy photos of the beautiful Mississippi ANG aircraft, for example.

I'll take it! Thanks, Kursad!

The RF-84F sheet will be part of the May batch of releases - the 7 options (five of them with colorful unit markings on natural metal aircraft) on this sheet are:

-RF-84F 52-3769, 38 TRS

-RF-84F 52-7412, 15 TRS

-RF-84F 51-1945, 20 TRS

-RF-84F 52-3781, 66 TRW

There is a second, smaller sheet (not shown) with national insignia. This sheet was designed to fit the new Tanmodel kit.

Very nice! Looking forward to seeing the side profiles soon! One quick question: are the FS- numbers included one the sheets?

OK, it looks like I misunderstood the question at first : There is a third, black-only page with these numbers and other common markings. However, unfortunately it does not look like I received it in the shipment I received it from Cartograf. I will look into what happened. Hopefully it was printed but not shipped. If I can receive it on time, I will offer the RF-84F sheet in June. If not, I will have to postpone it to the July batch...

Sorry, I am still buried under orders that I have to ship as soon as possible. I should be done with them in a couple of days, and I will start posting profiles for July releases soon afterwards.
