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 new 1/48 scale Gloster Meteor FR.9 kit.

This kit was released with with little fanfare. So little fanfare, in fact, that I was not even aware that the kit was out!

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