Xtradecal has just released a range of brand new 1/48 scale decals covering the Avro Anson Mk.I. This will be ideal for the impressive all-new Airfix 1/48 scale Anson released last year, but will be equally relevant to the old Classic Airframes kit.

Today we are examining Part 4.



Six subjects are offered.
