Here are some more sheets from the guys at Leading Edge Models for fans of the Royal Canadian Air Force.  This time they contain full colour national insignia in both 1/72 and 1/48 scale. 

  • LE.005 provides sets in 1/72 scale: 

ten x 16 inch                 sixteen x 24 inch           six x 30 inch 

nine x 48 inch               two x 60 inch                four x 84 inch 

  • LE.006 provides the same in 1/48 scale: 

eight x 16 inch              ten x 24 inch                 two x 30 inch 

three x 48 inch              two x 60 inch                two x 84  inch 

The decals themselves have been silk screen printed in Canada by an un-named company and unlike the majority of "letter and number" sheets, each roundel is separately printed and has minimal and evenly spaced film surrounding it.  They are sharply printed and a little thicker that the ones you see from Microscale.  If I had to make a comparison to a known type I would say that they are of similar thickness to the ones you see from Cartograf. 

There is no instruction sheet provided and the main decal sheet is taped by double-sided tape to a piece of thin cardboard that acts as a backing sheet.  The backing sheet and decal sheet come packed in a clear plastic zip-loc bag. 

A good effort from Leading Edge Models that will gladden the heart of modelers of Royal Canadian Air Force aircraft.
