Starfighter Decals 1/72 Operation Torch November 1942
By Matt Bittner
One of the nice things with some Starfighter Decals' releases is their "campaign-type" sheets. These mostly cover a specific point in time as well as a specific campaign or region. This time Starfighter Decals covers Operation Torch, November 1942, in 1/72. There are markings for 11 aircraft:
- SBD-3, 06620, VS-42, 41-S-17, USS Ranger, Nov 1942
- SBD-3, 06641, VS-42, 41-S-9, USS Ranger, Nov 1942
- L-4A, 42-36389, 8th OS, USS Ranger, Nov 1942
- F4F-4, 11703, VF-41, 17, USS Ranger, Nov 1942
- F4F-4, 4087, VF-41, 22, USS Ranger, Nov 1942
- F4F-4, VF-9, 9-F-4, USS Ranger, Nov 1942
- F4F-4, VGF-29, 29GF, USS Santee, Nov 1942
- TBF-1, 00509, VGS-26, 26-GS-10, USS Sagamon, Nov 1942
- TBF-1, CRAG, Nov 1942
- TBF-1, VGS-27, 14, USS Suwannee, Nov 1942
- SOC-3, VCS-7, 1B, USS Augusta, Nov 1942
All aircraft are finished in the usual camouflage schemes of the period. Decals appear to be very nicely printed and in register.
If any of these subjects strike your fancy then by all means pick them up.
Huge thanks to Starfighter Decals for the review sample.
