This is an excellent decal sheet produced by Alley Cat decals in 1/48 scale depicting three Harrier GR.1A, three Harrier GR.3 and two Harrier T2 and one Harrier T4 of the Royal Air Force.

The decals are superbly printed by Fantasy Print Shop with good colour saturation and excellent register.  As usual the carrier film is ultra thin and my experience with Fantasy Print Shop decals that I have used in the past is that the decals will snuggle down into the surface detail nicely.

All aircraft are finished in the standard scheme of Dark Sea Grey and Dark Green disruptive camouflage on the upper surface and some aircraft have Light Aircraft Grey under surfaces.  Sufficient roundels and fin flashes are supplied to complete any two of the options illustrated.

An A4 sheet is also provided with 16 photographs of the aircraft printed on both sides of the sheet.

Highly Recommended
