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 third set, Item No. X48153, with six sets of 1/48 scale markings for EE/BAC Lightning T.4s and T.5s.



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

Details are as follows:

  • EE/BAC Lightning T.4 - XM790/T 19 Sqn RAF Gutersloh 1977 Dark Green/Nat Metal;

  • EE/BAC Lightning T.4 - XM968/Q 92 Sqn RAF Gutersloh 1973 Nat Metal;

  • EE/BAC Lightning T.4 - XM968/Q 92 Sqn RAF Wildenrath Dark Green/Nat Metal;

  • EE/BAC Lightning T.5 - XS419/DV LTF RAF Binbrook Med Sea Grey/Barley Grey;

  • EE/BAC Lightning T.5 - XS452/BT 11 Sqn RAF Binbrook Med Sea Grey/Barley Grey;

  • EE/BAC Lightning T.5 - XS458/Z LTF RAF Binbrook 1970s Dk Sea Grey/Nat Metal.

Two full sets of national markings are supplied (plus variations).

Instructions for the decal sheet are in full colour across one folded A4 sheet. Both side plus upper and lower views are provided for all six 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.
