F-84 Thunderjet

Retail price: $7.98

The Tamiya F-84G, being the current definitive 1/48th scale kit of the subject, is a worthy subject of aftermarket decals. Cutting Edge has released (at the time of this writting) four decal sheets for the Tamiya kit. This is their first F-84 sheet.


This decal sheet supplies decals for three subjects, on one sheet, for FS-473, FS-490-B and FS-493-B.

Registration is perfect on the sheet, and the colors look great. Also, both the decal base and the inks appear to be thinner than those used for the Tamiya kit decals. I have not used any of the Cutting Edge Thunderjet decals at this writing. My two unbuilt Thunderjets are for another project, so I will not be using these decals in the near future. However, based on my experience with other Cutting Edge decals, and the appearance of this sheet, it is safe to say the decals are well worth the purchase price.

This Cutting Edge decal set is priced at $7.98 for one sheet, compared to $6.95 for the AeroMaster sets which include two sheets. Although value received is not as good, nevertheless, these are excellent decals not to be avoided if one of these three aircraft is your desired subject.
