Model Alliance has produced another fine quality decal sheet depicting a
Canadian Armed Forces CH-126 Sea King in the 60th anniversary scheme in 2004.
The decals are designed for the Hasegawa or Revell SH-3H Sea King but the kit
will require some modification to depict a Canadian CH-126. Model Alliance
recommends using Belcher Bits detail sets BB-01, 02, and 03 to complete the
The decals are
superbly printed with good colour saturation and register. As usual the carrier
film is ultra thin and my experience with Model Alliance Decals in the past has
been that the decals have to be handled carefully and snuggle down into the
surface detail well. The carrier film then almost totally disappears.
All the data decals are provided as well as the wing walkways. Markings are
provided for 1 aircraft Serial No 12407of No 443 Sqn painted in FS36173 Grey.
The aircraft has a huge hornet painted on each side of the cabin and black and
yellow stripes along the tail boom. A 60th anniversary emblem 1944-2004 is
painted on the port side of the fuselage in yellow while all other markings are
the subdued low visibility grey.
Jon Freeman has
once again done a superb job of the decal artwork and the instruction sheet
artwork. Three thumbnail size photographs of the aircraft are included on the
back cover of the instruction sheet.
