CF-188 Hornet - '100 Years Navy' Scheme
In 2010, Hornet 188738 was repainted to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of Canada's Navy.
Decorated with traditional RCN style roundels and bold tail murals, this
aircraft was to be a sure crowd pleaser at that year.
Sadly this aircraft was lost prior to the start of the summer air show
season, the pilot ejecting safely while just a very short distance above
This decal set features a primary sheet with professionally screen
printed decals, and a secondary sheet, with tail murals of HMCS Winnipeg and HMCS
Bonaventure, CMYK printed on pre-coated white decal paper with a screen printed clear
The screen printed decals in this set have a very thin clear coat and will settle
down into the surface detail with a gentle touch from a Q-tip. If
you wish to use a setting solution, a mild one such as Testors Decal
Set is sufficient and recommended. Stronger solutions may effect the
graphic. Always ensure decals are applied on top of a fully cured,
high gloss finish. Apply a small amount of water to the location on
the model where the graphic is to be applied. Slide the graphic from
the backing paper on to the model rather than lifting the graphic
off the paper with tweezers. Then use a soft brush to help position
the decal once on the model. Allow the decal to dry over night
before handling the model. Take your time.
The CMYK printed
tail art are thicker decals and require a stronger setting solution
to snuggle down into details.
