Wolfpack issued their 1/48 T-38 kit to nice reviews, and Furball Aero-Designs has issued a sheet of 11 mostly-white Talons. Included are 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" sheets in color with profiles of the planes as well as color call outs and decal placements. The last side has stencil placements with top and bottom shots. The decal sheet is the same size and is beautifully printed by Cartograf. Included are the stencils and marking for two aircraft.

The markings included are all USAF and are:

  • T-38A, 54 FTS, 12 FTW, Randolph AFB, 1981, BuNo 68-8112
  • T-38A, 54 FTS, 64 FTW, Reese AFB, 1995, BuNo 63-8192
  • T-38A, 80 FTW, Sheppard AFB, 1983, BuNo 66-8380
  • T-38A, 560 FTS, 12 FTW, Randolph AFB, 1983, BuNo 68-8112
  • T-38A, 9 SRW, Beale AFB, 1988, BuNo 64-13297

  • T-38A, Air Force Logistics Command, McClellan AFB, 1975, BuNo 60-00551
  • T-38A, Air Development Test Center, Eglin AFB, 1976, BuNo 70-01570
  • AT-38B, 434 TFTS, 479 TFTW, Holloman AFB, 1978, BuNo 61-00836

The decal sheet is very well printed, and I have used Furball decals on several projects and they are fantastic. Details, such as the multiple parts for the “USAF” going over the landing gear doors, are perfectly handled. Registration is perfect and color looks great. Even specific silver dots are correctly done.

If you have the Wolfpack kit, this set is going to upgrade your kit and is highly recommended. My thanks to Geoff at Furball Aero-Designs for producing this and other excellent sheets and to IPMS for the chance to review it.
