With the recent announcement from Academy (official or not) I have decided to take it upon myself to give you a heads up on a new Two Bobs release for the F-16 in 1/32 scale.

32-019 covers Block 52 jets out of Mountain Homes 389th Fighter Squadron Thunderbolts. This Squadron deployed for Operation Enduring Freedom and the sheet contains some pretty awesome “nose” art from that deployment. All aircraft are in the standard FS36118 /FS36270 color scheme carried by most F-16 Squadrons nowadays. You get markings for five different specially marked jets including a very awesome US flag marked jet with a Fireman handing the flag to a US Serviceman. The other four jets include a Grim Reaper, Snoopy, Marvin the Martian and a Vulture. Now you have to pick wisely as there are only enough National Insignias and stencils for one aircraft.

All of the colors are spot on and the register is typical Two Bobs….perfect! The decals are printed by Microscale and there is very little carrier film. One of the really cool features of every Two Bobs sheet are the instructions which are full color and contain photos of the real aircraft. Also included on this sheet is a history of the GBU-31 and CBU-103 in combat. Along those lines are four suggested load outs used by the 389th during Operation Enduring Freedom.

This sheet is one to hold on to and add to your Hasegawa 1/32 F-16 or, you can be like me and wait on the Academy kit.


I wish to thank the Two Bobs for the sheet. Two Bobs decals are available at http://www.twobobs.net
