Cutting Edge has released two new decal sheets
for Trumpeter's new 1/32 scale A-7D Corsair II.
Part 1 of Cutting Edge's "Hot SLUFs" covers
three interesting Air National Guard Corsair IIs.
Two of the aircraft were attached to the Ohio
Air National Guard, and are finished in a two-tone grey wraparound
scheme. This scheme is topped off with red and yellow tail markings
plus the Ohio ANG logo on both aircraft and, in the case of one
example, red and yellow chequers on the front of the intake a la
357th Fighter Group Mustangs of WWII. This aircraft also features
the red name "Little Sweetie". The second Ohio ANG Corsair II wears
the name "Scrappy" on the nose in red and yellow text.
The third aircraft is finished in a two-tone
tan and stone wraparound scheme. FS matches are not suggested in
The decals are accompanied by full-colour, double-sided
letter sized placement instructions and a monochrome
sheet with additional notes covering the application of the decals, a bibliography; plus paint suggestions for Xtracolor,
Humbrol, Gunze, Model Master, Floquil, Polly Scale, and ProModeler.
The decals are perfectly printed, thin, in
register and with a minimum of carrier film.
I have to admit that I was not originally
interested enough to buy one of Trumpeter's 1/32 scale SLUFs, but
the colours and markings on this new Cutting Edge sheet have
inspired me to do so.
These decals will be welcomed by modellers who
want an interesting and different finish to their big Trumpeter A-7D
Corsair II kit.
