Leading Edge Models | #32.27 1/32 Scale CAF CF-104 Starfighter

Reviewed by Ron Patterson

This release from Leading Edge provides for 8 different RCAF airframes. A very nice feature with this set is the inclusion of sufficient decals to complete two aircraft, one airframe in natural metal and one in Dark Green, including all stencils. A feature not usually found in aftermarket decal sheets. A very nice touch Leading Edge.

The set includes marking for the following airframes:

AETE was the Aerospace Engineering & Test Establishment – Cold Lake Alberta.

The set comes with two sheets of very detailed instructions including detailed paint color information, recommended FS colors decal placement etc.

Two decal sheets are provided which are in absolutely perfect register and color. I’ve used Lead Edge decals many times and find them very thin and they react perfectly to MicroSol and MicroSet. I’ve never had any issues with silvering although I always lay decals down on a gloss coat.

I am looking forward to using these on my Italeri F-104 kit in the very near future.

The decals retail for $12.00 which is amazing since it provides for two airframes.

They can be ordered directly from Leading Edge Models website.
