48013 Heritage Vipers

Recommended Posts

48013 will come back from Cartograg early next month along with the 1/32 Viper sheet. This sheet in 1/48 features 10 F-16s with some sort of heritage artwork, whether the unit's anniversary, end of F-16 operations, or other celebration of the squadron's history. I tried to make it a mix of old school Vipers along with modern-day jets, all of which have never before been done in decal form.

Here are the profiles. I'll post more details and the artwork within the next couple weeks.

As always, they will be available directly at www.reidairpublishing.com

Thanks for doing this sheet. The CO bird is the last jet I launched and recovered before retiring. I sent the info for that bird to some other guys for a potential decal sheet but they ceased production. I know you have worked with them in the past and would be pleased if my info helped you out.

Thanks again for producing this sheet. Now I can build that model of the last day I actually worked for the ANG.

Hi, Kirk. I've never seen any of your pics. Is there a way you could send them to me to make sure I get the artwork correct?

I know it's useless request but,

"Please Sir, may we have these in 72nd Scale for all us small scale modellers." 8-)

With regard to the red tailed Alabama jets. Does the sheet come with color suggestions for the red and advice on how to avoid the red showing through the white decal?

Thanks

Jake,

F-16D 87-0379 is also named "City of Tuskegee" as per Oct 2015 - are 2 jets within the 100FS given the same name, or is there a time difference?

The red will be on the instructions. With Cartograf, there is no worry about the color bleeding from beneath the white decal. It will be fine.

They switched tail panels to give 332 City of Tuskegee early last month.

Thanks Jake

This will anyway give us modellers the opportunity to mix'n'match if we want to make the Delta :)

Jake, I know this sheet is already full, but if it does good and you do another heritage sheet is there any chance you will do some of the jets from the 185th out of Sioux City. I would love to have the Bats emblem that fits the Tamiya kit. I'm sure you have plenty of references, but if not I can send you what I have from one of my visits out there. They had some great nose art as well.

I have walkarounds of three 185th jets, along with their nose art.

The Bats are certainly a possibility down the road. In fact, a probability. However, this sheet is only for the Anniversary and/or other specially-marked jets. It's also already at the printers so I can't make changes to it.

I do have quite a few refs on the bats, but more is always better. If you guys would be so kind to send what you have, I'd appreciate it!

I'll have to dig out the photos and scan them! LOL

Yeah, after I posted this I thought it really didn't apply for the Heritage theme. I will gather up what I have and send it along to you when I get a chance. I've always liked the Bats.
