#72010 1/72 scale Decal sheet
Review by Steve Bamford (ARC Staff)
This decal sheet comes in 1/72 scale. The decal sheet includes stencils for one of four A-10's, plus markings for the 4 different A-10's. This decal sheet covers the A-10 Warthog from the Desert Storm period as well as one plane from "The Boys from Syracuse" New York ANG in 1982 . The painting options include everything from a 3 tone Brown/Tan/Sand Experimental Desert Scheme from Desert Storm on this sheet to a 3 Tone grey paint scheme to the Grey/Dark Green/Light Green A-10 paint scheme. Three of the planes include nose art. The quality of the sheet is good....excellent colours.....clear printing and completely in register although the stencil data for the 1/72 stencils are too small to be clearly printed and readable. I recommend this sheet to anyone looking for interesting options to the kit decals. Recommended kits are the 1/72 Academy, Airfix, Hasegawa, Heller, Hobbycraft or the Monogram kit.
Decal option #1 is an A-10 Thunderbolt II of the 706 TFS, 926 TFG, AFRes; out of NAS New Orleans.
