Wolfpak Decals 72-081: SAC Time
|$17.00 which includes US shipping.|
Wolfpak Decals goes big on this sheet with options for six mostly quite large aircraft, all of them assigned to SAC units.
The first is the smallest of the group, a UH-1N assigned to the 37th HS, 90th SMW at FE Warren AFB in Wyoming. This aircraft is from 2011 and is camouflaged in what appears to be the Euro I scheme, something the USAF did away with on pretty much all its aircraft about 15 or 20 years ago.
Of course, there is a B-52H. This one is 'Red Gremlin II' from the 93rd BS/307 BW, a reserve unit flying out of Barksdale AFB. Right now there are only three bomb wings flying the B-52. The 307th and 2nd at Barksdale and the 5th at Minot AFB.
The third option is an FB-111A that was with one of the two bomb wings that flew the type, the 380th at Pease AFB. This is in the SAC greens scheme. Both the FB-111 and Pease AFB are no more.
For the last options, we have three 55th Wing planes from Offut AFB. Firs is an RC-135W from September 1996 named 'Broken Promises'. Next, from 2011 is a WC-135W with a row of atomic symbols on the forward fuselage. This and the next plane, a WC-135C from 2008 do not have the long nose of the first option. All three have TF-33 engines.
The instruction sheet for this set is the best in the business when it comes to background information and what may be needed to accurately depict the aircraft being modeled. In addition to the actual placement profiles, there are several additional pages of information that include a history of the type, kits and update bits for these schemes, as well as load-out information, and any changes needed to properly model the aircraft in question, assuring you of the most accurate model you can have. A listing of kits and conversion sets is also included. A visit to their web site will get you much larger images of the markings options. As with the previous sheets, these are superbly printed by Fantasy Printshop and without any registration problems. If you have not yet treated yourself to some of the best researched decals around, you should.
