This is a new sheet from Blue Sky Models and once again they have
produced an interesting scheme this time for the South African C-47tp-EW
The decals are crisply printed with good colour saturation and
good register. The carrier film is ultra thin and this means the decals need to
be handled carefully and should snuggle down into the surface detail well. The
carrier film should almost totally disappear under a coat of clear finish.
The instruction sheet is printed on A4 paper and this is a much
better standard of colour printing then this company’s earlier decal instruction
This aircraft is overall blue-grey with a white upper fuselage surface and black
anti glare panels. Large white letters reading “70 years of Dak excellence” are
printed along the fuselage sides with the anniversary shield painted on the rear
fuselage. The South African flag is painted on the main surface of the vertical
To model this aircraft you will need to purchase the Heritage
Aviation C-47tp-EW Turbo Dakota set HACV72002.
