Furball Aero design is one of the new companies that has been around for a few years, providing decals for many of the subjects we modelers of Modern Aviation subjects really want but rarely seem to get… Go to their site for details.

This decal is a simple but elegant way to deal with canopy framing… On the 1/48 B-1B, this framing is very prevalent. Now, I know many have not or will not build this kit. It’s huge. It has presence. And it’s an accurate rendition of the “Bone”. For the most part. But with work, it looks great when complete. This model is now on display on the overhead desk of my pod in our B-1/B-52 System Program office, and has garnered a lot of attention…

First, don’t do like I did and NOT bother to properly get the clear parts into their recesses without doing the hard job of filling the seams. They are there, and you MUST use building skills. It’s embarrassing to note… I have a second kit that will receive that treatment. And that leads to the pictures…

Take a look at how well the furball decals fit the actual kit, EVEN with a ham-fisted builder. I can’t rave enough about this decal. It’s priced right, fits, and looks great on the model. I used Future to help the decal settle on the clear parts… There is one user-induced wrinkle, and that’s due to time and requirement to finish the model…

In the end, this is one of six aftermarket companies that have products I used on the Revell B-1B kit… Thanks to Furball for developing this decal, and sending it to me so I could use it. Yes, I paid for it out of pocket… and therefore this is an unbiased review. Support our aftermarket companies!
