Art Scale Kit has released several decal sets for last year's Infinity Models Aichi D3A1 Val.

Tonight we examine Part 4, Over China Imperial Japanese Army Air Service.



These 1/32 scale decals have been designed to fit the Infinity Models kit.



Instructions with reference and four-view illustrations are included.

Decal printing quality looks very good. The decals are glossy in finish. Apparently the clear top layer of the decals may be removed after application with lighter fluid, much in the same way as recent Eduard decals.



If desired, the decal cover varnish can be removed - wash off Zippo lighter fluid.

The details of the three subjects are as follows:

  • Aichi D3A1 Val, model 11, 9-257, of 14th Kokutai, Nanning airfield, South China, March 1940.

  • Aichi D3A1 Val, Model 11, 3-222, of 12th Kokutai, Hankow airfield, South China, June 1940.

  • Aichi D3A1 Val, Model 11, AI-205, aircraft carrier Akagi, Japan Islands, April 1941.

These are nice looking decals that will offer an individualised finish for your 1/32 scale Val.

Thanks to Art Scale Kit for the samples
