Sweet Fourteens

 

 

After a busy summer, Exito Decals brings you two news sets dedicated to the recently released 1/48 kits from Airfix and Eduard. Our fifth decal set is entitled “Sweet Fourteens” and includes markings for three interesting examples of the Supermarine Spitfire FR Mk.XIVe:

  • Spitfire FR Mk.XIVe (TZ112), coded DN-Y of No. 416 Sqn RCAF, Uetersen, Germany, December 1945-January 1946.

  • Spitfire FR Mk.XIVe (TZ198), coded 2I-M of No. 443 Sqn RCAF, Uetersen, Germany, January 1946.

  • Spitfire FR Mk.XIVe (SM937), coded 62 of No. 151 OTU, Peshawar or Ambala, British India, 1946.

 

 

None of these marking options have ever been reproduced in decal form in 1/72 or 1/48 scale. DN-Y features sexy nose art which is rarely seen on Spitfires.

 

 

This set is available directly from the manufacturer:

 


 

Last of the Line Vol. 1

 

 

Entitled “The Last in Line vol.1”, our 6th decal set is the first of a series devoted to the German aircraft produced in the last months of World War II. This release covers three Bf 109 G-10s manufactured by WNF, including one machine used in the postwar Yugoslavia:

  • Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-10/U4, W.Nr. 61xxxx, coded ‘Black 5’, flown by Oblt. Fritz Nächster of 5./JG 52, Veszprém, Hungary, early March 1945.

  • Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-10/U4, W.Nr. 61xxx8, coded ‘Yellow 6’ of 6./JG 52, Ainring, Germany, May 1945.

  • Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-10/U4, W.Nr. 611023, coded ‘White 45’ / ‘Black 9645’, flown by kap Franc Rupnik of 83.LAP, Pula, Yugoslavia, late October 1950.

 

 

‘Black 5’ has never been reproduced in decal form before, whilst the remaining two aircraft have not received enough attention from other manufacturers.

 

 

 This set is available directly from the manufacturer:

As previously, the decal sheets are printed by industry leader, Cartograf of Italy, which ensures top printing quality and ease of application. These are complemented by instructions that differ from the plain market standard. What you get are essentially high quality posters with accurate and inspiring illustrations.

Each subject is presented on an A4-sized sheet, with large side aircraft profiles printed on the front, and the remaining artwork, photos and all necessary information laid out on the rear side. This way you not only get some cool decals for your model kit, but also attractive posters to adorn your man cave, at the same time!
