1/48 Revell B-1B

Two Bobs decals provides some nice aftermarket decal options for the venerable (and gigantic) 1/48 Revell B-1B, presenting current day –at time of writing- markings for the B-1B Lancer strategic bomber as follow:

  • B-1B S/N 85-0089 489th Bomb Group, Dyess AFB, TX (2015)
  • B-1B S/N 85-0077 77th Weapons Squadron, Nellis AFB, NV (2015)

Both of them are finished in overall Gunship Gray (FS36118). Instructions include color stock number for Federal Standard, Testors, Humbrol, Gunze and Xtracrylics. The instructions are printed in color with very clearly indicated call out for the location of all the decals, including stencils.

The decals were designed by Twobobs and printed in the USA by Microscale. There is a main decal sheet plus a small inserts with might be maybe call “fuselage art” added to the airplanes. The decals are very glossy, there is no indication of silvering –on the sheet- and both have good color density and are in registry.

This decal sheet is a welcome option for modelers interested in the recent service of the B-1B lancer.

Recommended to modelers of all levels.

I would like to thank Two Bobs decals and IPMS/USA for the review sample.
