Reviewed by Brett Green



Xtradecal has just released a range of brand new 1/48 scale decals covering the Avro Anson Mk.I. This will be ideal for the impressive all-new Airfix 1/48 scale Anson released last year, but will be equally relevant to the old Classic Airframes kit.

Today we are examining Part 2.



Six subjects are offered.


A nice selection of interesting colours are markings are included.

Details are as follows:

    1. Avro Anson Mk.I (Early), K6163, of Central Flying School, Royal Air Force, based at RAF Uphaven, UK, 1937.
