Walkway lines in four styles
(black, red, yellow and red-dashed) are included, but stencils will have to be
sourced from the kit or from the Model Alliance generic Canberra decal
Instructions are once again a
highlight of this package. Each are supplied as a stapled, A5 sized eight page
booklet with three views of each aircraft. Quality of the artwork and the colour
callouts is very good. A handy list of Canberra interior detail colours and
reference photos is also included.
The decals themselves are
beautifully printed and in perfect register.
The biggest disadvantage is the
limited run nature of the Classic Airframes kit for which these decals are
designed. Snap 'em up while you can! Hannants has also announced a PR Canberra
kit in the 1/72 scale Xtrakits range to be released later this year.
This is another well-presented and
interesting release of an attractive subject from Model Alliance.
Thanks to Aviation Workshop / Model Alliance (UK) for the
Model Alliance products are
