Introduction

This decal sheet has been out for some time but with the recent release by Special Hobby of a 1/48 Spitfire Mk Vc and the pending release by Classic Airframes and, I beleive, MPM (?) they are extremely relevant again.

The set


This is a simple set of stencil marking that replace the kit markings for the Spitfire Mk Vc and no doubt other Spitfires as required. The stencils supplied are very comprehensive and cover the complete set required for an aircraft. The decals are well printed and very clear, to the point of being able to read them.

The instruction sheet gives you all views of the aircraft with the locations for the stencils. It also gives you the warning that for RAAF aircraft the number of stencils that survived the RAAF repainting requires you to check your references to ensure that you use the correct numbers of stencils.

Recommendation

With the number of Spitfire Vc kits being released now i'm sure that these will become very useful for the modeller. To that end I highly recommend them.
