Twobobs 48-022 for F-117A

Units: 49 FW




Scott Van Aken

Finding a decent sheet for the F-117A stealth fighter is not an easy task. There just are not that many available. Not surprising considering the few aircraft that were built and the few options one has for markings. However, this sheet answers many requests and provides markings for just about every F-117A that is currently in the inventory.

The sheet itself offers dedicated schemes for four aircraft. One each from the 7th, 8th and 9th FS and one for the 49 FW boss bird. With the only real difference between planes being the tail band, there is one for each squadron and for the boss bird. The Wing CO's band is also in a fragment sheet (not shown) and offered as layers for those who prefer that type of decal. There are enough additional numbers given to allow the modeler to reproduce any of the wings aircraft. There are also mission marks for two of subjects for the missions they flew over Kosovo in 1999.

If you have a 1/48 F-117 in your build pile, you really need to have this sheet.
