Finally some decals that will help you represent a F100-PW-229 on your 1/48 Viper (I think it looks fine in 1/32 as well).

Scale Motorsport, known for automotive decals, answered my call on these decals and produced a great decal for the military modelers.

Been using the Motor Sports carbon fiber decals for a few years now; so this is just now making out to other parts of the jet modeling realm :)

Did they actually scale their 1/43rd sheet to 1/48th? They actually look scaled for 1/32nd than 48th.

Not sure exactly how Matt did this (scaled from 1/43 most logical). He sid this pushed the limits of the printers capability. The first run was too light and I had him darken the decals.

As for 1/32 scaling on these, I agree, it would look just fine in 1/32 and looks ok in 1/48 as well. Depends if you really want the weave to stand out compared what CF really looks like.
