With the advent of the Special Hobby 1/48 Boomerang kit
there is finally a relatively easy way to cover one of Australia's own designed and built aircraft. There are other sets available for the Boomerang but the only other credible choice currently are those produced by Red Roo Models
. These sets cover some similar areas but also other aircraft as well.
The decals come on a single piece of decals paper and cover the following aircraft:
The set is produced on continuous film and provides sufficient roundels for at two of the aircraft to be produced. As with other sets produced by the same printing process, the greys and yellows appear a little 'streaky' when viewed close up but from normal viewing distance they should be good. The nose art appears to be very nicely rendered and should go well on your model.
The instructions come in the usual full colour, double sided A4 sheet as produced by Aussie Decals. As per usual they also include a colour reference listing FS colours where applicable.
This is another good set produced by Aussie Decals. Whilst some of the aircraft have been covered before by other companies, this set gives you a variety of different models of the Boomerang to do once Special Hobby hopefully bring out kits other than the CA-12. With the assistance of Richard Hourigan and the different references used by Aussie Decals I am also sure of the accuracy of this set.
To that end I highly recommend this decal sheet.
