In addition to printing high-quality markings for other decal companies, Fantasy Printshop also produces their own decals under the brand name of Euro Decals. These have tended to be national markings, serials and codes, and generic decals, but this time we have some timely options for the forthcoming 1/48 scale Bristol Blenheim Mk.I kit.

Markings are supplied for six subjects in a variety of finishes.

  • Bristol Blenhein Mk.I - K7040 "114", 114 Sqn, RAF Wynton March 1937. Finished in Dark Earth and Dark Green upper surfaces and Night below.

  • Bristol Blenhein Mk.IF - YN-B, 601 Sqn, RAF Hendon Summer 1939. Finished in Dark Earth and Dark Green upper surfaces with Night below. The lower starboard wing and tail plane are painted white.
