This release from Afterburner Decals is a tribute to the F-16CG/DG Block 40, F-16CM of the 388/419th TW based at Hill AFB in northern Utah. The decals are sized for the Tamiya 1/48 F-16C/N Aggressor/Adversary kit, but the slightly less accurate Hasegawa kit can also be used. Tim Hatton [litespeed] takes a look at Afterburners latest release.

Nice review. I'm planning on getting this set as I see the aircraft flying overhead almost daily. Is the Tamiya kit a block 40?

The aggressor boxing is...it has all the parts for a B40 OTB with the exception of the fuselage "scab" plates, which are available from a few sources, including Tamiya and CrossDelta.
