Eagle Strike Productions has released two more decals sheets for the F-86D Sabre Dog in 1/48 scale.

There are 4 very attractive schemes on each sheet. The instruction sheets are beautifully printed in colour displaying the left hand side view, which in some cases could leave the right side a bit of a mystery. A very nice set of colour chips with the Federal Standard Number printed below is provided. In both sheets a correction sheet has been provided to correct the original sheet. Instructions are provided on how to make certain decals conform to the raised details. The decal sheets are clearly printed and in perfect register.

The colours are sharp and the decal film is very fine. Even the finest print is clearly readable, something many decal manufactures fail to achieve.

These decals will be a very good replacement for the Revell-Monogram F-86D.
