This decal sheet provides markings for eighteen Dutch Thunderjet aircraft. The package includes two sheets of decals and a four-page printed instruction sheet with general details of the decal placement. This decal sheet is a supplement to Dutch Profile #12, available from the same location. The color profile drawings from the book cover the same aircraft and provide a much clearer indication of the colors.

This decal sheet provides nose and tail numbers for all of the aircraft listed in the instruction sheet plus a few others that can be found in the Dutch Profile. A single set of national markings is provided, along with three sets of tail stripes and seven wing tank markings. Clearly, the modeler can produce a single model from this sheet. By obtaining some Dutch national insignia sheets, more models can be produced.

This sheet is 1/48 scale but the same markings are also available in 1/32 and 1/72 scale. This decal sheet is available from the producer at the link above. To order the decal sheet, click on the Dutch Profile of the F-84. On the left side of the web page is a link to “Decalsheets Thunderjet”. Dutch Profile Publications accept PayPal, so ordering should be easy.

The decals are well printed and should go on easily. The set is recommended. While it is not necessary to have the Dutch Profile, the book will assist in better understanding the decal sheet. I wish to send my thanks to Dutch Profile Publications for providing the sample and IPMS/USA for the opportunity to review it.
