Introduction

This new release set of decals from 'High Planes Models' consists of three different A-20 B/C in 1/48 scale. These decals are produced for High Planes Models by Hawkeye Models Australia.

The instructions

The instructions consist of two A4 sheets with side and top views of the different aircraft available in this set as well as three original shots of the A20.

 

The decals

The decals are for the following aircraft:

They are produced in the high standard I have come to expect of Hawkeye Models and consist of enough markings for all three aircraft ie roundels etc which is my biggest hassle with after market decals. Once again they are constructed in two layers for those markings requiring white background.

Recommendation

It's always good to see more RAAF markings are being produced and are of high quality. The problem now is that we require the 1/48 A-20 B/C kit needing to be produced again like the AMT A-20G.

AMI thanks "High Planes Models" for the review samples.
