Furball Aero-Design  FBD48052 - Mikoyan MiG-31BM Foxhound canopy seal decals

This set is a re-release of the out of print 2016 set.

 

 

Designed to fit the incredible 1/48 AMK MIG-31 kit, these decals replicate the pink, tan, and white sealant found on the canopy of the mighty "Foxhound".

 

 

A tedious job to paint by hand, these decals will make your job much easier! 2 full sets are included (designed to be used with Avant Garde kits)


 

Furball Aero-Design  FBD48062  F-16CJ Canopy Seals

This is a new 2017 release.

 

 

This set contains two sets of black canopy seal decals that are found on the front and rear canopy parts of the F-16C. Optimized to work with the 1/48 Tamiya F-16C, subtle metallic rivet detail is also included.

 

 

Looking carefully at the set and comparing with Hasegawa F-16’s I have, I’m sure that these canopy seal decals should closely fit other brands of the F-16C with a minimum of issues, so I would say they would be a good purchase for any F-16 devotee.


 

Furball Aero-Design  FBD48053  "Bombcat Weapons Set"

This detailed set is a re-release of the 2016 out of print set. "Bombcat Weapons Set" contains all the markings you need to dress up the ordnance for your late model Grumman F-14A/F-14B bomb droppers. That said, this set can certainly spruce up any US Navy ordinance you may want to use for modern operational USN aircraft.

 

 

This massive set has been printed by Cartograph, which means you know they will conform to the complexities of the curved surfaces of weapons. There is minimal carrier film, which is a bonus when working on small surfaces such as weapons and are in perfect register.

 

 

This set has a wide range of ordinance included as well as multiple sets for all options. The markings include options to make either live or inert versions of all of the munitions listed above.

 

 

The specific makings include:

-(6)GBU-12

-(6)BLU-111A/B

-(4)GBU-31(V)1/B with BLU-117 warhead

-(4)GBU-31(V)1/B with MK 84 warhead

C o n c l u s i o n

 

Furball Aero-Design offerings in these releases, gives us time poor modellers, the option of accurately improving the look of complicated seals on canopies with the absolute minimum of fuss, which will be appreciated greatly.

Secondly, the detailed ordinance set will certainly improve the look of your modern USN aircraft, especially the F-14 Bombcats and will prove very useful.

Thanks to Furball Aero-Design for the sample.
