Superscale 72-300: Squadron Badges

Units: 49th and 36th TFW


Long out of production


Scott Van Aken

This is another old Microscale sheet that contains squadron badges for six units in four sizes: 12, 15, 18 and 24 inches.

The 49th TFW had the 7th, 8th and 9th Fighter Squadrons. At the time of this sheet, this wing was flying the F-15A though in the past it flew the F-4D, F-105, F-102, F-100, F-86, F-84, F-80 and some earlier types. Currently they are flying the F-117 and T-38, though with the imminent retirement of the F-117, the unit may well disappear into history or be reassigned to another lesser unit.

The 36th TFW was assigned the 22nd, 53rd and 525th TFS, flying out of Bitburg at the time this sheet was produced. These folks were also flying F-15s at the time and in the past few F-4Es, F-100s, F-86s, F-84, F-80 and earlier WWII types. Apparently only the 22nd FS is still around and has converted to F-16s, now flying out of Spangdalhem.
