  4. Hi Rich, I can see two styles of font in these pictures, could you be more specific? One style is #359 (Type D) and the second is #316 (Type E) Both fonts are present on the Sky's Decals sheet no-26 that I have, and I don't think I've used all of them, yet. [ing] /Bosse

  14. Hi. This is my most recently finished build. I normally build aircrafts in 1/48, but once in a while I like to do some armour build and the I prefer 1/72 because of costs and lack of display area for larger scales.
