This is another excellent decal sheet produced by Dutch Decals in 1/48 Scale depicting Royal Netherland Navy Hawker Seahawk, Hawker Hunter F.4/6, Fairey Swordfish and LSK Fw.56 Stosser.

The decals are superbly printed with good colour saturation and excellent register.  As usual the carrier film is ultra thin and my experience with Dutch Decals that I have used in the past is that the decals will snuggle down into the surface detail well.  I always use decal setting solution.  The carrier film then almost totally disappears under a coat of clear.

 

 

The decals provided for the aircraft are as follows;

  • Hawker Hunter F.4 N-113of No 325 Sqn based at Leeuwarden Air Base in 1955.  The aircraft is finished in Zeegrijs (Sea Grey) and Donkergroen (Dark Green) upper surfaces and either Silver or Grijs Anodiseer (Medium Sea Grey) lower surfaces.
