Xtradecal has released another new 1/72 scale decal set with eight options for the very nice brand new Airfix Wellington kit, although they will also be suitable for any other small scale Wimpey.



This offering covers the Wellington Mk.Ia and Mk.Ic. If you want to build more than one of the new Airfix kits, this sheet will enable you to represent three different camouflage schemes - Dark Earth and Dark Green over Night; Dark Earth and Middle Stone over Night; and Coastal Command.



Six styles of roundel are also included.

Details are as follows:

Bomber Command

  • L4272 LY-G 149(East India) Sqn RAF Mildenhall 1939;

  • L7842 KX-T 311(Czechoslovak) Sqn RAF Honnington 1940;

  • X9684/Y 37 Sqn, Shallvea, Egypt 1942;

  • X9827 KX-F 311(Czechoslovak) Sqn RAF Bircham Newton 1942;

  • X9889 BL-D 40 Sqn RAF Wyton 1941;

  • N2887/5 Central Gunnery School, RAF Sutton Bridge 1943;

Coastal Command

  • W5674 DF-O 221 Sqn Iceland 1942;

  • Z1111 KX-N 311(Czechoslovak) Sqn RAF Aldergrove 1942;

Instructions for the decal sheet are in full colour across two folded double-sided A4 and one A5 sheets

Left and right views are offered for all eight subjects, while the upper surface pattern for the three main variations are also included.



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.



This is a high quality decal release for the Airfix (or any other brand) 1/72 scale Wellington.

Thanks to Hannants for the review sample
