Desert Air War
Xtradecal, 1/48 scale
Xtradecal has just released a new 1/48 scale decal set that covers six Allied fighter types in the Desert Air War WWII. This is Part 1, so presumably we can expect more!
Markings for two Spitfire Mk.Vbs, a Tomahawk, Hurricane Mk.Ib; P-40F Warhawk and a North American P-51A are included..
A nice selection of interesting colours are markings are included.
I like these multi-aircraft themed releases as I think you'll be more likely to use more than one set of markings from the sheet. Good value!
Details are as follows:
Supermarine Spitfire Mk.Vb Trop, ES276, 'WD*D', flown by Lt. Sylvan Feld of 4th Fighter Squadron, 52nd Fighter Group, USAAC, based at La Sebala, Tunisia, June, 1943.
Curtiss Tomahawk Mk.IIb, AM406, 'DX.O' of 4 Squadron, South African Air Force, based at Lille-Seclin, North Africa, May, 1942
Supermarine Spitfire Mk.Vb Trop, ER758, 'S', 'Hero', of 336 (Greek) Squadron, based at Benghazi, Libya, February, 1944.
Hawker Hurricane Mk.Ib, W9291 "M" of 30 Squadron RAF, Edku, North Africa, August 1941.
Curtiss P-40F,'12', 'Jo' of 57th Fighter Group, originally aboard USS Ranger, circa July, 1943.
North American P-51A, serial unknown, 'WU.B', of 225 Squadron, Royal Air Force, based in Algeria, May, 1943
Instructions for the decal sheet are in full colour across one folded double-sided A4 and one A5 sheets.
Both side views and upper and lower views are provided for all four subjects
Colour notes are offered, along with model paint callouts for Xtracolor enamels and Xtracrylix acrylics.
The decals are perfectly printed and feature thin carrier film.
This themed release will offer welcome variety for anyone building 1/48 scale Allied Desert War fighter aircraft.
