Two Bobs Aviation Graphics is one of leaders in aviation decals with an impressive variety in 1/32, 1/48 and 1/72 scale. This latest release has very interesting subject of privately owned company that offers airborne adversary support (dissimilar aircraft) known as “Red Air”. With a fleet of over 50 aircraft, eleven airframes are McDonnel Douglas A-4 Skyhawks and the other six aircraft types range from a single Beech Baron to twenty seven MIG-21’s. This sheet, from my count, will allow you to make two of ten different aircraft.

There are three sheets with one sheet (standard 5x9) and two smaller sheets covering additional details like intake warnings and external pylon warning triangles. Each sheet is printed perfectly without any print register errors and the few items that have color are very accurately printed. There are some very small markings and easy to read. All the markings are included from tail numbers down to the stencils and the few walkways that exist. There are two (front and back) full color instructions sheet that clearly show placement of markings for the ten different subjects. As a bonus, there is a large section showing reference photos of the real aircraft. The instructions indicate the correct FS paint colors along with five paint brands, AK/MiG, Hataka, Mr. Color, Mr. Paint and Xtracrylix. In addition to all the data, there are a few comments listing aftermarket masks from DNmodels and resin upgrades from Phase Hangar resin so you have everything you need for a contest show stopper.

This is one of the most comprehensive decal sheets I have seen. Very fine work from Two Bobs and that is what I have always seen from them. It is nice to see a company covering the uncommon subjects like Draken International. Hopefully Two Bobs will produce decals for more aircraft in the Draken International fleet in the future. I would like to thank Two Bobs Aviation Graphics for this review sample.
