building a Classic Airframes Hudson.

Airframes has diversified into the decal business. Their first choice of
subjects is logical - five sets of decals for their new series of 1/48
scale Lockheed Hudsons.
Each set contains two or three decal options on a 5" x 8" sheet, and a
folded, letter sized decal placement and painting guide.
The decals are printed by Microscale. Registration is perfect on all my
samples, and the carrier film looks very thin. The colours look good too.
Classic Airframes has done its homework here - there are a few tricky roundel
and code colours, especially for some of the Aussie and the New Zealand
The subjects covered are as follows:
- 48-001 Hudson Mk. III 269 Sqn Coastal Command and
A-29 Chinese Air Force
- 48-002 USAAF A-28A; Hudson IIIA Coastal Command
and Mk.I South African Air Force
- 48-003 Hudson Mk. III RAAF (Air Ambulance) and Mk.
- 48-004 RAAF Mk.III and two RAAF Mk. IVs with some
nice nose art.
- 48-005 RNZAF Mk. III and RCAF Mk. I
Now there will be no need for your CA Hudson to look the same as the next one
on the competition table!
