This is another excellent decal sheet produced by Dutch decals in 1/72 Scale depicting Royal Netherland Air Force Do215B-2, DH-85, Fokker D.XXIII, DB7B ML, PBY5(A), and Royal Netherland Navy Martin B10, Ryan STM, Brewster B340.

The decals are superbly printed with good colour saturation and excellent register.  As usual the carrier film is ultra thin and my experience with Dutch Decals that I have used in the past is that the decals will snuggle down into the surface detail well.  I always use decal setting solution.  The carrier film then almost totally disappears under a coat of clear.

The decals provided for the aircraft are as follows:

  • Dornier Do-215 B2 866 and 874, (first Serie). ML (Military Airforce).  Strategische verkenner VerVa based at Bergen Air Base in 1940.  The aircraft is finished in RLM 70/71/65 and had orange triangles in six positions and orange rudders.

  • Dornier Do-215 B2 875 and 883, (Second Serie). ML (Military Airforce).  Strategische verkenner VerVa based at Bergen Air Base in 1940.  The aircraft is finished in RLM 70/71/65 and had orange triangles in six positions and orange rudders.
