    I'm planning to do this kit for GB but backordered til late May. The kit says decals for 4 markings but I can't seem to find out what they are. Does anyone have any intel on this kit/markings? Thanks.

    I've only seen a pre-release review so far, in a magazine. No mention of the decal sheet. Jan (Lucky 13) might know, as he was looking at this kit.

    The kit provides four distinctive subjects:

    For the bare metal modeler:
    F-100D-25-NA, 55-3668, 20 TFW Commander's aircraft, RAF Weathersfield
    F-100D-10-NA, 54-2158, 3-IJ, French Air Force

    For the camo modeler:
    F-100D-25-NA, 55-3634, 308 TFS/ 31 TFW, Tuy Hoa AB, RVN
    F-100D-10-NA, 54-2154, 11-YK, French Air Force, Sharkmouth

    A note on the camouflaged French F-100D. These aircraft were delivered to the France as bare metal airframes, so while the camouflage pattern looks similar to USAF patterns, check your references. They were similar, but they were not identical and even the colors were different.

    Many of the sources I've been in contact with have indicated the sharkmouthed Huns over Algeria were light blue underneath, not gray as shown in the color profile. The greens and tan were somewhat different though we don't have good color match-ups yet. I bring all of this up as the sharkmouthed Hun is one of the most interesting camouflaged F-100s schemes I've seen.

    Jan, thanks for the info. Are you doing it for the GB?

    I'm hoping to have that kit in my hands by the end of May and use the AeroMaster decals (#8). It'll be the plane in my siggy.

    Hi
    The sharkmouth on French AA F 100 D was introduced in late 1978 by A/C Michel Croci in Djibouti, for a very
    short period ( that's why they seems so clean compared to hardly weathered planes !!).I have the referenced color for those plane but it's a little bit old ( early 80's) Humbrol Enamel.The underside would be
    a kind of RLM 65 and the dark green turned quicly in light purple !
    No arresting hook on French hun,twisted refueling probe,straight wheel wel doors ( bronze green inside of the wel )...
