new release of HS/BAE 125 and Dominie decals contains eight schemes for these
two transport aircraft of the RAF including the Royal No 32 Squadron.
This sheet fills a void that was previously filled by a company called
Modeldecal many years ago, but I think these sheets are way out of production
and may only possibly be found at swap and sell meets these days. The decals are
nicely silk-screen printed on a very clear carrier film. The carrier film is
quite thin and should disappear under a coating of clear finish. The decals are
very crisply printed and have good detail and colour rendition. The colour
reference sheet that is provided is excellent giving good colour reference and
decal placement for the 8 schemes provided. A few small reference photographs of
the aircraft are included in the colour instruction sheet. The artwork for the
decals and the instruction sheet has been done by as usual by Jon Freeman and is
Also included in this set are some of the data decals required for both types of
aircraft. The eight schemes are as follows:
