Product article by Steve Bamford on Nov 3 2009


This new decal sheet from Starfighter Decals includes markings for  2 aircraft from VMF(N)-531 ("Nuckle Head" & "Linda") and one from VMF(N)-542. Insignia only 2 aircraft.

The 2 schemes include:

  • F7F-3N VMF (N)- 531 in Korea in 1957.

  • F7F-3N VMF (N)- 542 in Kimpo, Korea.

The 2 pages of instructions are clear and include 2 color views of each aircraft for painting guidance and marking placement.  The instruction sheet also gives paint and markings info for each aircraft.  The decals are beautifully printed on 1 decal sheet by Cartograf and are of a first rate will not be disappointed.  Designed to fit the Monogram F7F-3 kit (soon to be re-issued by Accurate Miniatures) with the Cobra F7F-3N Conversion. Can be use on the Octopus kit as well.

You don't often see markings for the Korean  Tigercat nightfighters, so it is good to see the release of this sheet.


I would like to thank Starfighter Decals for providing me with this review sample.
