--------------------

Here's a review of a 1/48 sheet from Twobobs.  

This sheet is a re-release of their very popular 48-022 sheet but with updated markings for the Lockheed "Skunk Works" jet!  Plenty of markings for Allied Force jets (including Vega 31) are also included!

The serials included are: 88-843 (49th FW jet), 82-803 (8th FS), 88-806 (7th FS - I think it should be 82-806) , 85-820 (9th FS), 85-831 with large skunk graphics on bottom of jet.

Vega 31 82-806, shot down over Yugoslavia, is included and mission markings galore for these jets. A complete history of Vega 31 is included on the instruction sheet.

The decals are in-register, clear and are beautifully printed.

The instruction sheet has 4-view drawings to assist in decal placement.
