FirstLook

 

If you like your Lancasters, but you have a hankering for something other than your basic black (and Dark Earth and Dark Green), then Xtradecals has a great new release for you.

Xtradecals X72061, Post War Lancasters Part One, features five Lancs in some colourful and uncustomary schemes. They are:

  • RE186 L-H School of Maritime Reconnaissance RAF St Mawgan 1956 overall Dk Sea Grey;

  • RF289 BS-G 120 Sqn RAF Kinloss 1951 Dk Sea Grey/white;

  • TW657 TL-C 85 Sqn US Tour 1946 White/Black Tiger Force markings;

  • 25.F.5 Flotille 25 French Navy Lann-Bihoue France 1958;

  • 103/N SAR Secreteriat General de l'Aviation Civile et Commericiale North Africa 1959. Both overall Dark Blue

The decals are accompanied by attractive, full-colour instructions. The decal sheet is perfectly printed, with the colours all in register. Decal film appears to be very thin.

Xtradecals new decal sheet will be a great way to get your Hasegawa Lancaster, for which these markings have been specifically designed, to stand out in the crowd!

Highly Recommended..
