Reviewed by Brett Green
Xtradecals has released a decal sheet which will be ideal for the new
Xtrakit 1/72 scale Gloster
Seventeen aircraft are covered on this busy decal sheet. These subjects
reflect the colourful fuselage markings of the period, when many RAF
fighters were adorned with bars, checks, diamonds and more. Several of
the subjects include even more striking markings, such as yellow tails
and lightning bolts.
The decals are accompanied by attractive, full-colour instructions.
Three small plan view diagrams accompany the seventeen profiles.
All subjects are UK based RAF aircraft, and feature full serial on
both wing undersides and code letter on the nose wheel door:
The decal sheet is perfectly printed, with the multitude of colours
all in register. Decal film appears to be very thin.
There are no national markings or stencils supplied with this decal
sheet, but the items provided in the Xtrakit Meteor F.8 boxings will be perfectly adequate for this purpose.
This is a colourful and interesting release that will be welcomed
by anyone building Xtrakit's new 1/72 scale Meteor F. Mk.8.
