Australian decal manufacturers are just getting better
and better considering that most of their custom would be local with
only a small amount going overseas. Yet the quality is up there with the
best from O.S. Not only is the decal quality very good but the
instructions are excellent also. Once upon a time, we used to get hand
drawn diagrams which did the job but weren't very pretty to look at and
certainly didn't inspire you to build a particular aircraft. Now we can
expect full colour computer generated art-work thats very professional
And so it is with this post-war Wirraway sheet from Red Roo Models
covering four aircraft, two RAN, one RAAF and a restored example in the
same markings as the RAAF aircraft. All necessary marking are present on
the sheet for all four aircraft however the large aircraft numbers and
the word Navy for the two Navy aircraft are the wrong size. This is
pointed out in the instructions and an extra sheet with the correct
sized markings is supplied. All we need now is an easy to build and
accurate Wirraway to put them on. Hmm?
The second set, RAAF and RAN serial numbers for both WWII and post-war
aircraft, is something you can't have enough off. They come in three
colours, black, grey and white and in several styles and include the
letter N for RAN aircraft post-war. The simple instruction sheet just
tells you how to apply them as you would expect.
Like many others in this industry, the people at Red Roo are enthusiasts
and so we get a superior product.
