This is the second set of decals from this manufacturer covering the
Fiat CR 42 and like the earlier sheet, will keep the ardent CR 42
fanatic busy for ages. 40 different aircraft are supplied on this sheet.
Most of the subject aircraft are Italian , but for something different,
there is a smattering of other airforce aircraft such as a number of
aircraft flown by the Luftwaffe in 1944, a captured aircraft flown by
the RAF at Martlesham Heath in 1940, and 3 subjects from the Hungarian
Air Force during the 1940s.
The decals are very nicely printed by 'Cartograf' in Italy, and my
sample had excellent registration and colour density. Decal film is also
at a minimum, so silvering should not be a big problem when they are
applied. The individual decals will have to be carefully removed due to
the crowded nature of the sheet..
The artwork in the instructions is black and white, however a nice
touch on the rear page is a chart that supplies paint matches to all the
colours needed, with reference to FS , Humbrol, Molak, Tamiya, Gunze,
Model Master and Mr Kit.
This is another nice selection of subjects from 'Sky Models' for
those 1/48 CR 42 kits you have stashed away in the model cupboard. Again, the only
problem I can envisage , and its a hard one, is choosing which aircraft to model
from the large selection given.
Thanks to Ken from Pacific Coast
Models for the review sample.
