FirstLook

 

Model Alliance has released a quite complete decal sheet for the Kaman SH-2G and 2F Seasprites currently in service with the Royal New Zealand Navy. All the aircraft sport the dull grey low vis schemes currently used.

The decals are presented on two sheets and the colour density and register on these is first class. Of note is the extremely good register on the smaller markings these are both clear and readable under a magnifying glass!

Marking Options

The decal sheet comes complete with 2 sizes of national markings and tail codes for some 6 different aircraft. A separate black decal sheet is provided for the non-slip walkways that appear on the topsides of the aircraft.


 

Conclusion

 

This decal sheet represents a welcome enhancement for the old Matchbox kits.

Recommended.
