Company: SuperScale International
Base Kit: Any 1/48 F-4B Phantom II
Right on the heels of Academy’s release of their long-awaited 1/48th scale F-4B, Super Scale comes out with a great sheet depicting the ever-popular Jolly Rogers markings. Sadly, there is only one set of markings on the sheet and there are no stencils. The aircraft depicted is BuNo 151506, which was the CAG’s aircraft while on the USS Independence in 1965. Though having nothing to do with the decal sheet, this aircraft was later lost on January 10, 1968, due to an aircraft accident while assigned to the USS Ranger.
The decals are typical Super Scale Decals that we have been using for so many years. They are extremely thin, have nearly no excess decal film, and they appear to be in perfect register. These decals are printed by Cartograf of Italy, so we know they are of high quality.
My thanks to Squadron and IPMS/USA for the review samples.
