I really would love to see some good decals for the first UN air-to-air kill of the Korean War when Lt. William Hudson and Lt. Carl Fraser of the 68th FS(AW) in F-82G 46-383 shot down a North Korean Yak-7U on June 25, 1950.

I am glad I waited until the release of the kit to wrap up the design work - it looks like the kit decal sheet has a few good options and I will need some time to come up with alternative choices.

Kursad, one thing to watch out for is that a few/some/many/all F-82s had the curved, North American Aviation "Sabre" style lettering on the USAF on the wings and the buzz numbers. Previous kits have varied on this so check photos of the real things. This "font" was standard on most F-86s but was also seen on some early F-100s.

I know, Paul - I designed these digits very carefully for the F-86 and F-82 sheets in mind, it is also available as a Caracal Models Basics sheet.
