Superscale 48-1217: F-16C Fighting Falcons
|Units:||Indiana ANG Commemorative schemes|
As many of you know, Superscale is one of those US decal companies that has been around for 30 or more years. Its founder finally decided that he was getting too old to keep it up and so the company was purchased by Squadron. Now, after a year or so of reformation, it is back. I missed the first few new releases, but now have some new ones for you.
This particular sheet is for two F-16Cs of the Indiana ANG at Hulman Field in Terra Haute. This unit may well be gone as it was scheduled for closure in 2008 or so. There are two planes on the sheet with insignia for both and data markings for one. There is no specified kit though most will be able to find one without any problem. My old friend Norris Graser did the research and thanks for not telling me SS was back up and running.
The two planes are in the simplified two greys scheme and both should have the small 'beer can' sensors near the wing tips. They are, I believe AMRAAM capable so should be carrying those rails on the outer wing tips.
One aircraft is in a somewhat 'retro' scheme with red markings and a big, red unit badge on the fin.
The other is a Colts commemorative scheme with markings in blue and a large horseshoe on the fin.
A data placement guide is given and the big change for Superscale is that the instructions are now in color at no increase in price. The decals themselves are superbly printed by Cartograf in Italy. That accounts for the vibrant colors you see.
