Fantasy Printshop printed these decals and they are superb. They are crisply printed, fully legible, in register and have excellent color. The decal sheet doesn't include any stencils, which you can find on Fantasy Printshop's F-100D Insignia and Data sheet.
I've always been a Super Sabre fan. They were exciting aircraft finished with some of the 50's most colorful markings. If you're looking for a colorful 1/72nd scale F-100D you'll have 4 great options to choose from with this exciting new Euro Decals sheet. I recommend these decals and I would like to thank Fantasy Printshop for the review sample.
