Freightdog Models is picking up the pace of its decal releases. The latest
is a follow up to their debut offering - Brits Abroad Pt.2 - RAF Minor
This new sheet offers a nice selection of unusual colours and markings for
some popular and widely available models. Specifically, the subjects are:
A Meteor PR.10 of 541 Sqn
RAF Germany 1957, finished in Medium Sea Grey and PRU Blue with red
Two Harvard T.2Bs in overall
High Speed Silver (ie, not bare metal) depicted during the Mau Mau
uprising of early 1955.
Spitfire FR.Mk.18e of 208 Sqn,
Egypt 1949. This aircraft is finished in the interesting colours of
Light Slate Grey and Dark Earth on the upper surfaces, with Medium Sea
Tempest F.Mk.6 of 6 Sqn RAF
in Egypt 1949, finished in overall bare metal with a yellow spinner.
Beaufighter TF.Mk.X or 45
Sqn RAF during Operation Firedog in Malaya during 1949. This very
different Beau has upper surfaces in Medium Sea Grey with mid fuselage
demarcation and Gloss Black below.
Mosquito FB.Mk.6 of 4 Sqn
RAF in West Germany, 1949, also wearing this striking MSG and Black
scheme but with the added interest of two-tone blue and yellow fuselage
codes and Roundel Blue spinners.
Spitfire XIX of 81 Sqn, RAF
Selatar 1954 ('The Last!'), finished in Medium Sea Grey and PRU Blue
with high fuselage demarcation.
Instructions are very well done. Every subject is treated to large four-view
drawings plus colour notes.
The decals are printed by Fantasy Printshop and feature excellent opacity,
authentic colour reproduction and perfect registration. The package is also
available in 1/72 scale.
These uncommon post-war markings will add a sense of
individuality to some good kits.
