Fighters Over Africa and the Mediterranean Pt.2
Xtradecal's 1/72 Fighters Over Africa Pt.2 Decals are available online from Squadron.com
Xtradecal has recently released a new series of 1/48 scale decal sets covering British and Commonwealth fighters in North Africa and the Mediterranean Theatre of Operations.
The subject of tonight's review is Item No. X48150, Part Two.
The six subjects cover a interesting selection of schemes and markings on one Hurricanes, three Spitfires and two Kittyhawks.
Details are as follows:
Hawker Hurricane Mk.IIc Trop HV560 FT-Z 43 Sqn S/Ldr M.Rook Algeria 1942;
Supermarine Spitfire Mk.IXc MJ730 GZ-? 32 Sqn S/Ldr George Silvester DFC Kolomaki, Greece 1944;
Spitfire Mk.Vc Tropical version JG959 AX-N 'Cirecoooks VI'1 Sqn SAAF Lt M.E.S.Robinson Tunisia 1943;
Spitfire Mk.Vc Trop JK345 336 Royal Hellenic Air Force Greece 1944;
Curtiss P-40 Kittyhawk Mk.II FS490 CV-V W/Co Brian Eaton Italy 1943;
Kittyhawk Mk.III OK-o 450 Sqn RAAF Tunisia 1942
Instructions for the decal sheet are in full colour across two folded A4 sheets. Both side views are provided for all aircraft.
Colour notes are supplied, along with model paint callouts for Xtracolor enamels and Xtracrylix acrylics.
The decals are beautifully printed and feature thin carrier film.
I do like these themed decal sheets with multiple aircraft subjects. I think it is liklely that the modeller will build more than one of these very interesting subjects.
