DISCLAIMER: USAF SIG does not vouch for the accuracy or otherwise of any item - we review what we see so that you, the modeller, can make up your own mind! However, where we are aware of errors or omissions, we will note this in our review.

Travers sheet 72-037 provides markings for six different F-16Cs. The aircraft featured are:

The instructions are on a double-sided black-and white sheet with only a right-side view of each aircraft, together with a four view showing stencilling.

A single set of stencilling is provided, but it is very indistinct and the orange markings used on the early aircraft are provided in pink on the sheet! In addition, some of the decals are out of register and the white is more cream (although this could be because the decal sheet is quite old and might "whiten" if exposed to sunlight for a while!) Furthermore, the size and shape of the tailcodes and serials are not correct as they appear too "blocky".

Unfortunately, this sheet cannot be recommended due to it's errors. Luckily, most (if not all) of the markings are available elsewhere.
