Xtradecal has just released a brand new 1/48 scale decal sheet covering the Spitfire Mk.Vc in overseas service

These will be suitable for the older Aifix kit or the Special Hobby offering including its reboxing Italeri..

Six subjects are included here.


A wide variety of interesting colours are markings are offered.



Details are as follows:

  • Mk.Vc (Trop), JK345 of Royal Hellenic Air Force, based in Greece, 1946.

  • Mk.Vc (Trop),JK831, ‘M/Slavonec’ of 352 Squadron, Royal Air Force, based at Canne, Italy, 1944. Plese note the correct spelling of the aircraft name - this is spelt as Slovonic on the decal sheet so a little bit of slicing and painting will be required. Correct spelling is SLOVENEC.
