FirstLook

 

Cutting Edge Decals' latest release offers some interesting markings for German V-1 and V-2 rockets, plus American JB-2 Loon rockets, in multiple scales on the one decal sheet.

I was especially pleased to see this new release as I have had a V-2 on my display shelf for some time that has been screaming out for a dash of colour. After about five minutes work, it finally has its individual touch!

 

 

In addition to two pieces of "rocket body art" for the big 1/35 scale Dragon or 1/48 scale Mauve V-2. the sheet is packed with options in 1/72 and 1/48 scale for V-1 and JB-2 Loon pulse-jets. Many of these markings are applied over very colourful schemes, and will make for some interesting diorama potential.

Some stencil markings are included on the decal sheet.

Instructions are by way of a full-colour, double-sided letter sized placement guide and an accompanying monochrome sheet with additional notes and a bibliography; plus paint suggestions for Xtracolor, Floquil, Polly Scale, Gunze, Tamiya, Model Master and even ProModeler.

The decals are perfectly printed, thin, in register and with a minimum of carrier film.

Whether you have the MAC 1/72 scale V-1 and Loon kits, or the Mauve 1/48 scale V-2, the Tamiya or Monogram V-1s, or the big 1/35 scale Dragon V-2, this decal sheet will offer plenty of options!
