Xtradecal's 1/48 Mosquito Decals will be available online from Squadron.com



Sword from the Czech Republic has recently released two 1/48 scale two-seater Lightning kits.

Xtradecal has added a number of marking options for modellers buying these kits with three new decal sheets. We are reviewing the first set, Item No. X48151, with three sets of 1/48 scale markings for EE/BAC Lightning T.4s.



Please note that both Sword kits include the plastic parts for both T.4 and T.5, so you can use these markings on either kit.

Details are as follows:

  • BAC/EE Lightning T.4 - XM974/T 74 Sqn RAF Leuchars 1965

  • BAC/EE Lightning T.4 -XM995/T 92 Sqn RAF Wildrenrath 1977

  • BAC/EE Lightning T.4 -XM972/972 226 OCU RAF Middleton St George 1960s.

Two full sets of national markings are supplied.

Instructions for the decal sheet are in full colour across two folded A4 sheets. Both side plus upper and lower views are provided for all three aircraft. Stencils are not included.



Colour notes are supplied, along with model paint callouts for Xtracolor enamels and Xtracrylix acrylics.

The decals are beautifully printed and feature thin carrier film.



This release offers some interesting and colourful options for those building the 1/48 scale Sword two-seater Lightning kits..

Highly Recommended.

Thanks to Hannants for the review sample
