Red Roo’s latest decal release represents Aussie
Warbirds’ CAC CA-18 Mustang Mk 21 VH-AUB ex RAAF A68-107, as it appeared
in September 2001.
The 1/48 scale decals are nicely silk-screen printed. 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
The aircraft is painted in overall silver lacquer so a final coat of
clear should not be a problem. The colour reference sheet provided is
excellent giving good colour reference and decal placement for the
scheme provided. The aircraft was displayed in an overall Post office
Red Scheme for a few years before being painted in an overall silver
RAAF scheme in 2001. It carries the civilian registration of VH-AUB and
a colour photograph taken at Scone NSW in September 2001 is provided on
the instruction sheet.
