Starfighter sheet 72-138

Starfighter sheet 72-138

Starfighter has just released a small 72nd scale decal sheet with 3 early SBD-1/2 in the classic pre-war “Yellow Wings” markings.  There are two Marine aircraft and one Navy bird. Of course, at the present time, there is no 72nd kit of the SBD-1/2.  However, Starfighter is soon to release a resin conversion for the Hasegawa kit of the SBD-3/4/5 to backdate it to the 1/2 version. The Hasegawa kit has been out of production for some time, however, it is just being re-released.  The timing of these decals and the upcoming resin conversion couldn’t be better.

Starfighter’s decals are of the finest quality.  The registration is spot on and the decals appear very opaque.  Finally, you can’t argue with the $6 price tag.  A definite must-have for 72nd “Yellow Wings” fans.
