Isradecal’s latest 1/48 scale decal offering is
essentially an updated replacement for their pervious Barak sheet
IAF-21, now out of print.. The package contains two main decal sheets,
a small supplemental sheet, and an 8-page instruction book. The main
decal sheets provide multiple squadron markings, full stenciling,
flare/chaff dispensers, and various number styles. Sufficient national
insignia and stenciling are provided for two aircraft. The decals are
thin, in register, and printed by Microscale. Unlike the main sheet
decals, the small supplemental sheet, containing IAF 50th
Anniversary markings, is printed on a solid clear film, requiring that
these two decals be cut out individually.

The instruction book contains specific marking
details for the following aircraft, all in standard FS
F-16C/D Block 30, First Jet Squadron, #360 and #077.
#077 was the only F-16D Block 30 operated by the squadron.
F-16C/D Block 30, Knights of the North Squadron, #378
and #034. Like the First Jet Squadron, only the Knights of the
North only operated a single F-16D (#034).
F-16C/D Block 30, Valley Squadron, #088 and #355. The
squadron was primarily an F-16D operator and #335 was the only
single-seater flown by the squadron.
F-16D Block 30, #055, Valley Squadron, 2001. Special
50th Squadron Anniversary badge.

New tail markings consisting of a large winged skull, designed by
Ra’anan Weiss (the owner of Isradecals) and partial rudder
striping. This aircraft was previously flown by the Scorpion
Squadron. In late 2004, the Scorpion Squadron became an F-16D Block
40-only squadron, and its F-16Cs were transferred to the First
Fighter Squadron., gaining the new tail art in the process
