  19. 1:72 Babibi Model Decals A-400 M ($22) C-160 Transall ($16) Babibi Model is a new name for me I discovered when I was looking for decals for my current project, A-400M Grizzly, which I find myself doing for Scale Aircraft Modeling. I had never seen and found any reviews regarding the quality of the decals, even so, I decided to order the A400 sheet, having the surprise that the brand new Babibi Model decal sheet, C-160 D Transall for Revell kit, was in the same envelope. Here we will analyze both. First of all, the presentation of the decals is very professional and very interesting. The decals come in a plasticized paper wrap and with transparency on one side to see the inside. The back has all the general instructions for decal application. These instructions are in fact general and applicable to all decals, it is always important to remember the general principles of decal application. In this case, there is no specific rule for applying these decals. Analyzing the decal sheets, the color registration is great and the definition of the details is one of the best I've seen. The decals have a thin film, in fact looking very thin and delicate. Starting with the A-400M sheet, it is a sheet that costs 22 dolares (not really cheap) but provides 6 different options namely: - A-400M First Plane of Turaf “KocaYusuf” - A-400M Altas Zm409 With Airborn 16 Tail Arts - A-400M Royal Air Force - A-400M Armé de LʻAir -A-400M Malaysian Air Forces - A-400M 60 Years of Luftwaffe (a misprint on the profile ) As you can see, the tail arts are very well defined and will undoubtedly give a more colorful look to your A-400M thus breaking the monotonous gray. Beside all the markings and letters, Babibi Models sheet also gives you, concerning the RAF several other numbers to make almost an entire fleet. Now let's look at the C-160 sheet. This decal sheet has only two options but very good choices: -C-160 D Transall TURAF Ex-Ankara Museum Turkey - C-160 51 + 1 “Silberne Gams” - Germany Both options are very colorful and just like the A400 sheet, the color registration is of enormous quality, and very fine, having everything to go well during the application. The decals for the German version won me over right away and are very cute despite being a little more complicated to get the desired results considering the size of the decal of the cause and then the extra color of black to be painted by the modeler to blend the black as on the real plane. Conclusion: Well, Babibi Model is a very good surprise for me. The presentation of the decals (on the envelope) and the decals themselves are the best I've ever seen. The colors and the fineness of the decals are noteworthy for their quality. The guidelines given when placing the decals are sufficient and perfectly noticeable to any model designer. The only less positive point that I glimpse is the fact that none of the planes have any historical background, not even a small sentence. My thanks to Babibi Model for producing these fantastic decals and for the C-160 review sample. Francisco Guedes
