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

Amongst these are their "Hawker Hurricane Mk.IIb Part 5 - USAF Service ".



These 1/48 scale decals should fit any 1/48 scale Hurricane Mk.IIb kit. The best candidates at the moment is the Arma Hobby kit, due for release imminently.



Instructions with reference and four-view illustrations are included.

The instructions are simple but adequate for the colour schemes. Reference photos and information is included.



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 are:

  • Hawker Hurricane Mk.IIb, black KZ492, unknow Squadron, Mediterranean area, 1944.

  • Hawker Hurricane Mk.IIb, yellow PB654, 350. Fighter Group, 346. Squadron, Emas airfield, Sardinia 1944.

  • Hawker Sea Hurricane Mk.XII, JS327, 800. Squadron, HMS Biter, Toch Landings, November 1942.

These are nice looking decals that will offer an individualised finish for your 1/48 scale Hurricane Mk.IIb .

Thanks to Art Scale Kit for the samples
