FirstLook

 

Art Scale Kit has been busy with a lot of new decal releases in the second half of 2023.

Amongst these are their "Supermarine Spitfire Mk.IX Part 2 - Greece and Turkey".

 

 

These 1/48 scale decals should fit any 1/48 scale Spitfire Mk.IXc and IXe kit. The best candidates at the moment are the excellent Eduard kits.

 

 

Instructions with reference and four-view illustrations are included.

The instructions are simple but adequate for the colour schemes.

Decal printing quality looks very good. The decals are glossy in finish. Apparently the clear top layer of the decals may be removed after application with lighter fluid, much in the same way as recent Eduard decals.

The three subjects have clipped wingtips. They are:

  • Spitfire LF Mk.IXe, 6275, Turkish AF, used in 1947-1954 period. Finished in overall High Speed Silver with a red spinner.

  • Spitfire LF Mk.IXe, 6329, 8th Air regiment Turkish Air Force 1947. Finished in Dark Green and Dark Green upper surfaces with Medium Sea Grey below.

  • Spitfire LF Mk.IXc, MH558, Royal Hellenic Air Force, flown by Lt. Georgios Smyrniotopolous, 1947. Finished in Dark Green and Dark Green upper surfaces with Medium Sea Grey below. and a shark's mouth. Two-tone blue spinne

These are nice looking decals that will offer an individualised finish for your 1/48 scale Spitfire Mk.IXc and IXe kits.

Thanks to Art Scale Kit for the samples
