FirstLook

 

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. Until recently these have tended to be national markings, serials and codes, and generic decals, but we are starting to see a flurry of decal releases for specific aircraft subjects.

 

 

The latest of these cover late bubbletop Mustangs - P-51D, F-51D and Mustang Mk.IV. Two separate releases are available for 1/72 and 1/48 scales.

Markings are supplied for six subjects in a variety of finishes and colourful markings. it is a very cosmopolitan collecton, with six different nationalities on the one sheet.
