Colin from Freightdog Productions has updated his information about their newest decal release:

Just a quick heads up that our latest decal sheet has arrived and is available to order. This sheet includes options for nine different Post-War Fleet Air Arm Seafires in 1/48th scale, including marks XV, XVII, FR.46 and 47. They are designed for the new Airfix Mk.XVII and re-issued Mk.46/47 kits. Note a Mk.XV can also be made by cross kitting the Airfix Spitfire Mk.XII and Seafire XVII, although some scratch building will be required.

Options included on the sheet are (in EDSG/Sky scheme unless mentioned otherwise);

  • Mk.XVII SX311/167 of 1833 RNVR 1952;

  • Mk.XVII SX370/HF (overall HSS with trainer bands) of 728 Sqn Hal-Far 1950;

  • Mk.XV SR572/112 of 1832 RNVR 1949; FR.47 VP480/180 of 800 NAS on HMS Triumph 1950 (Korean Stripes);

  • Mk.XVII SX159/102 of 1831 RNVR 1946 (Temperate scheme);

  • Mk.XV PR419/107 of 790 NAS 1946 (Temperate scheme);

  • Mk.XV PR474/6-11 HMS Glory touring Australia 1946 (temperate with BFP roundel and bar on fuselage only);

  • Mk.XVII SX235/101 of 1831 RNVR 1951

  • and lastly FR.46 LA545/110 of 1833 RNVR 1948 (Temperate scheme).

Please note in order to get so many options on the A5 sheet, no 'D' type roundels are included. These can be sourced from the Airfix kits (which will have Cartograf printed decals included) , but for one of the Mk.XV and three of the Mk.XVII options you still require two 36 inch roundels for the underside (as Airfix have chosen an option that has smaller roundels under the wings). No stenciling is included however both Airfix kits due out soon include comprehensive stencils.

This is a limited edition with initial print run of only 200 sheets, a re-run is not likely unless there is significant demand. Price of the sheet is £9.00 plus £2.00 postage worldwide direct from our website, and also available from Hannants very soon.
