Chile has a new scheme for their F-16C/D's; https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/9447408😉

I was afraid this would happen. Chile's C/D models had the coolest paint, and now look completely vanilla. I was hoping they would have painted the AM/BM models in the C/D scheme instead. But, as usual, no one asked me.

Hmmmm 🤔 Maybe for the next go around of B-52 markings:

Nice! Folks have been asking for a reprint of CD72058 or a new B-52H sheet for some time; so I will consider adding this.

I wish they chose a clearer typeface : your humble non-native speaker friend here just spent a couple minutes trying to figure out what a "dinbotieal angel" was before it finally dawned on me 🙂

I would like to see some Special Missions C-130's.

EC/DC/WC/JC, etc.

Not a lot of airframes in the mix, so multiple types on a single sheet might be doable.

Would love to see a reprint of CD48039 for the re-release by Trumpeter this fall of Gallery UH-34D?

What I would really like to see is USAFFE F86s. Everybody does the Korean war ones but you never see the USAFFE ones.

Ancient history by now, but Microscale/Superscale did several USAFE units in 1/72 scale decades ago. But yeah, the preponderance of decals have been for Korean War Sabres. Kinda like the preponderance of Sabre kits have been for the F-86F-30 and not much to none for the earlier workhorses, the A and E models. If I were an enterprising kit manufacturer, I would produce a really good kit of the F-86A and maybe sell the wing sprues as a separate package for those who would want to convert their F kits to Es. In 1/72 scale, or course. And then in 1/48 scale, too!😊

Air Guard versions as well....along with F-86Ds and Ls.

The ICM B-26 Invader is available from Ukraine on eBay.  It should be finding its way to the rest of the world shortly.  Could we convince you to do some Guard, Korean and WW2 markings for it?

Forgot VietNam 😉

 

True, but that would require a model of a different airframe which may or may not be coming.  I too though, would welcome some Counter Invader decals eventually.

Not to mention, they were very popular in Latin America, and by the Portuguese in Africa......

The Diabolical Angel art was also applied to the center caps of the main gear:

I am working on B-26 base drawings and will definitely do at least a couple sheets. Many interesting postwar options there, and possibly colorful Korean War aircraft if I can find references. Stay tuned.

this book is a fabulous reference for Korean War Invaders:

Hello Kursad,

 

when will the YF-16 decalsheet be released? Any idea perhaps? Will you do a 1/48 or a 1/72?
