FirstLook

 

Dutch Decals continue to explore the less-covered markings of WWII and Korean markings in the latest "Kits at War" series decal releases.

Decal set K7/4 is a 1/72 scale sheet covering 9 aircraft, including two Mustangs, two Sabres, a Junkers transport, Mosquito, Hurricane and a low-backed Spitfire XVI.

Sheet K4/6 includes a subset of these aircraft - one Sabre, one Mustang, a Hrvard; a Mossie and the Spitfire XVI (click thumbnails to the left to view instructions and decal sheet full sized).

Registration on both sheets are perfect, and colour saturation looks great. The instructions on both are of a simiar style. Both side views and, where required, topside drawings are supplied for each aircraft. Notes provide recommendations for the ideal kit and colours. 

Plenty of national markings are included with both, which is probably just as well. Springboks are not so easy to find in decal form!

This sheet will be of interest to modellers who want to expand their "small air forces" collection.

Recommended.

Thanks to Luuk from Dutch Decal for the samples
