With the release of the Cutting Edge conversion sets for the Monogram He-111 it was only natural that Cutting Edge release decals for the conversions.

The first sheet depicts four He-111Bs from the Spanish Civil War. The markings on the sheet are very beautiful renditions of the unique markings applied to Franco's bombers. Two aircraft are in the overall light grey and two are in the prewar four color splinter scheme. Every one of the aircraft has tail art which adds a lot to the uniqueness of these aircraft.

All the decals are in perfect register with no color bleed.

The Cutting Edge conversion set is an excellent piece of engineering and if you have already bought one, or think that you might, you will need this sheet or one of the other three to complete the project. I'm sure that with the release of the Roden 1/72nd He-111s that the decals will eventually be available in that scale as well.

I highly recommend this sheet to anyone interested in the markings of the Spanish Civil War, but especially to those who may be interested in the Cutting Edge conversion set. You will need to look closely if you are buying the decals for a particular conversion set.

This sheet is for the He-111B.

Highly Recommended.
