FirstLook

 

Dutch Decal's sheet K4/2 covers some interesting early-war fighters and Spitfire vairants. 

One of the two Duxford-based Spitfires will require Paragon's 1/48 scale two-bladed wooden airscrew. This will give the Spitfire a very different look. The Hurricane features fabric wings, two-bladed propeller and silver undersurfaces. I believe that Paragon have a resin fabric Hurricane wing and that MDC have a  conversion in preparation.

MDC's conversions will also come in handy for the two Seafires and the two Spitfire floatplaneson the sheet.

Registration and colour on the sheet looks perfect. 

This is another release that gives conversion modellers more options for finishing their unique models. 

Recommended.

Thanks to Luuk from Dutch Decal for the samples
