I really must repeat my commendation of Dutch Decal for their ongoing commitment to short-run kits and conversions. This release covers subjects unlikely to be touched by the major decal companies.

Sheet K4/5 supplies decals for the big 1/48 scale Avro Manchester conversion from Paragon, a Lancaster B.I in early-war markings; Aeroclub's vacform Meteor Mk.4 and the MDC Seafire III conversion. 

A single set of national markings is provided for the two big bombers, but the Seafire and Meteor are supplied with full markings for each aircraft.

This sheet will delight any modellers planning to build any of these interesting aircraft.

Registration is perfect on this sample sheet. The colours are, as usual, rich and opaque.


Thanks to Luuk from Dutch Decal for the samples
