    WW2 military aircraft decals

    Hi guys and girls, I am looking into creating own decals and I'm looking for anyone who might be interested or might have information on WW2 British, American, German, Italian, French, Russian and Australian aircraft markings to start and others to follow. I am looking for dimensions and measurements of the 1:1 markings so I can create the most accurate product possible. Thanks guys.
  3. Hi there everyone, I'm new here and I would like to ask if anyone can help me identify a symbol or insignia from a 1 35 scale Academy kit of Tiger 1 tank called Operation Citadel. On the decal sheet it is labelled as " 5 " . It has a yellow box as a background and red lines I cannot describe within the yellow box. It is meant for the Totenkopf version of the Tiger 1 during operation citadel. I will try to upload a picture here, if not can someone tell me what the symbol means by looking it up on the Britmodeller review ? It is there in the pictures. Thanks!!
  4. I came across a Kits World decal sheet for 1/72 Hurricanes. It has a couple of schemes that have peaked my interest. In particular, the Romanian Air Force one stands out in my eyes: Can anyone comment on the accuracy of these decals and the schemes illustrated?
  5. Messerschmitt Bf.109G-6 Gustavs over The Balkans (ED48001) 1:72 and 1:48 Exito Decals Polish company Exito are new to us, and have launched their brand from their website where they also sell general modelling "stuff" such as kits, tools, books and so forth. They have sent us their first issues in both scales, which arrive in a slightly larger than A4 releasable foil bag that is stiffened by a large piece of card, a sheet of paper front and rear, with the decals hiding in the back, and a set of side profiles on the front advertising what's inside. Inside are the decals of course, plus a page devoted to each option, which is printed on heavy glossy stock on both sides, with three-view profiles, a photo of the aircraft in question, and other information that may be of use to the modeller. Decals are by Cartograf, which is a guarantee of good registration, sharpness and colour density, with a thin gloss carrier film cut close to the printed areas. There are sufficient national decals on the sheet to model each of the three options, with a dotted line encompassing each option, plus another annexing the corner that allows the vendor to cut off the the Swastikas, which are also included in two parts on the body of the sheet to comply with local regulations regarding this contentious symbol. From the sheet you can decal one of the following: Bf.109G-6 White 12, flown by Uffz. Anton Riemer of 7./JG77 Mizil, Romania , January 1944 Bf.109G-6 Black 5, 2./JG53, Borovo, Croatia, May 1944 Bf.109G-6 W.Nr.166133 flown by Capt. Constantin "Bâzu" Cantacuzino, San Giovanni near Foggia, Italy 27th Aug 1944 The most attractive option to this modeller is the stars and bars equipped aircraft that was crewed by an Romanian Prince desperate not to be shot down by his Allies over Italy late in the war when the Luftwaffe were a spent force, and Allied pilots were probably desperate for a kill. Conclusion What a professional and attractive package this makes. As well as some cracking decals, you get profiles of all the options that are of such high quality that they could be framed or incorporated in the display of your finished model. We expect great things of Exito if this is their first issue. Very highly recommended. 1:72 Scale ED72001 1:48 Scale ED48001 Review sample courtesy of

    1/72 German Maltese cross decals?

    Dear Colleagues I haven't built a biplane in decades but have now acquired a 1/72 Roden Gotha. Given their infamous decal reputation, is their an aftermarket company who do large German Maltese crosses that might fit this kit? Thanks Andrew
  8. Long time reader... first time poster... HELP!!! Has anyone had this happen before? I finished a Testors 1/72 B-66 Destroyer on August 30th last year, and about a month ago I noticed the decals were turning black! Since then, I've seen it get progressively worse. I don't harbor any hope of salvaging the model, I just don't want to have it happen again. There were a few "firsts" for me on this build, so there are a lot of variables. But, here is the sequence of paint and decals: Tamiya spray gloss black (base) Alclad Polished aluminum + Alclad aluminum Alclad Aqua Gloss clear Decals (original kit decals purchased on e-bay) Testors metalizer sealer (pretty old bottle) Here is a photo of the decals under the cockpit on the day I finished it: Here is a photo taken tonight of the same decals: Here are a couple more examples of the decals that have turned black I've had decals turn brown before, but only after a couple of decades. But this has only been 6 months! The decals I bought were original, so they were 20 -25 years old, but in great condition (not yellow). I want to blame the decals, but I wonder if there was some reaction between the aqua gloss and the testors sealer that affected the decals sandwiched between? I'm just hoping to prevent this in the future, so I thought I'd throw it out to the community to see if anyone had any insight. Not to sound too melodramatic, but this is really heartbreaking; there is a long story behind this model, but in short it was the model I've been wanting to make since 1989 and I did it! Then this happened... Any help or insight would be appreciated -- I don't want to go through this again! For what it's worth, here's what it looked like in it's prime (5 months ago! Ha Ha!):
  9. Fiat G.50 in Finnish Service (D48032) 1:48 SBS Model The Finns purchased and acquired military equipment from all over the world during World War II, including from Italy, whom they ordered 35 Fiat G.50 fighters from, although two were destroyed on their way to Finland (I wonder who paid for them?), so only 33 saw service with 26 Squadron. As is common with many decal sets, the sheet arrives in a ziplok bag with the multi-page colour A5 instructions doubling as the header-card/protection, and a long sheet of decals protected by a sheet of translucent paper. From the sheet you can build any and all of the following, as there are enough of the roundels to complete them all if you have enough models to apply them to. FA-11 of 3/LLv 26, Lunkula in Autumn 1941 FA-21 of 1/LeLv 26, Kilpasilta in Spring 1943 FA-22 of 2/LLv 26 Joroinen in Summer 1941 FA-26 of 1/LeLv 26 Kilpasilta in Winter 1942/43 Most of the options retain some vestiges of the original Italian scheme, and there is evidence of overpainting in places. Yellow lower wingtips and tail bands are present on all options, with some having yellow cowlings, and a mixture of finishes on option B. Decals are printed with the SBS logo, and have good registration, sharpness and colour density, with a thin semi-matt carrier film cut close to the printed areas. On my sample there were a few tiny areas of black printing that showed signs of spreading, although this was only really visible under magnification, so of little issue. Conclusion It's good to see some unusual decal options for the G.50, away from the standard Italian schemes that are usually seen. The Finnish aspect of WWII is less-frequently depicted in the West, so it's nice to see these available. Very highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of

    German Starfighter Decals - HELP

    Evening all. I'm currently working on a commission build for a friend of mine. He used to own the German air force F-104 that was static at Lasham airfield, Hampshire before being transferred by road to bruntingthorpe. He had a new in box 1/48 diecast in the Belgian tiger scheme that he asked me to rebuild into the aircraft he owned. Now all the paint work is pretty much complete, I'm struggling to find decals. I know hannants do a huge German selection on 3 sheets, but this seems like overkill as I'll probably never build another German aircraft. I'm looking for 22+35 and all of the stencils to go with. Is there anyone on the forum who prints decals or knows of another place to find some to work with? I'm a complete novice when it comes to aftermarket. Thanks all in advance Kindest regards Pete

    Airfix Mosquito, 1/24 Decals

    Hi Chaps. Firstly, just wanted to say hi, I'm new to the forum and just back in the modelling game after a rather lengthy break of 35 years, one build in and loving it. So here is my question, I pushed the boat out and purchased the Airfix 1/24 Mosquito in the black friday sales. Really looking forward to getting started. Doing a little research on schemes and I have fixed upon The dark grey scheme with yellow spinners from the original 1/24 release (sorry I can't find a reference to which squadron etc) Does anyone know where I can purchase decals for this? Looking forward to your responses. Thanks again Simon

    Su-34 - New decal sheet from Begemot

    Arriving too late to be used on my Trumpeter Su-34 - this latest set from Begemot covers all variants of the 'Fullback' - from the second prototype (Bort 43), through the early production machines and right up to date with the types deployment to Syria. Colour schemes range from the early Flanker-style camo, through the recently abandoned 'Eggplant/Aubergine' single colour uppers, right up to latest green/blue colours - FS Numbers are provided for all the colour schemes.. A full stencil sheet is included - and there are hundreds of them - plus a host of stencils for the weapons. This latter set alone is worth the asking price as it gives the correct designation and colours for the variety of ordinance used by the Su-34 A new feature is the printing of the instruction 'booklet' in colour - which is very welcome.... Note the inclusion of a decal for the underside Chaff/Flare dispenser. Stencils More stencils - including weapons. Addendum sheet including black outlines for the Bort numbers - note the new 'VKS Russia' titles. The decals are superbly printed and, from past experience, they go on to the model with the minimum of fuss and give excellent results. It looks like I will have to purchase some more Trumpeter kits to make use of this new set! Ken PS - The sheet is also available in 1/48 scale for the Kittyhawk and Hobbyboss kits.
  13. Ahoy folks, I have a question. My uncle has had a motorcycle kit for years and asked me if I'd put it together for him, but I've run into a potential snag. The decals for the kit, on the artwork and real pictures, are white. Mine have a cream tint, but its not on the carrier film, rather the actual text. However, the dial needles and markings still appear to be pure white. Has anyone else owned this kit to know whether they're supposed to be this colour, or weather I should try out the 'tape to window and let the sun fix them' technique I've just looked up? Cheers in advance. Gaz

    1/48 typhoon

    it possible to build a 1/48 scale Hawker Typhoon from 609 sqd, I have a kit but need decals
  15. Hi, I have just joined this interesting network. Can you recommend reliable webshops in Europe, where you can buy wing and tailplane center sections., especially for the DC-10-30, which I am in the process of building one -30 and two -40. I am familiar with Kingkit, Hannants and FDcal. As far as Kingkit, I have bought the last set they had, Hannants did not have any at present, and neither did FDcal. Best wishes PanAmFlyer2

    Spitfire Decals Needed 1/32 PCM Mk XIV

    About 18 months ago I built the 1/32 PCM Mk XIV Spitfire. I was fairly new to airbrushing and ended up painting a very rough surface using alcohol as a thinner (Tamiya Paints). I decaled the model and everything was fine up until the clear coat stage. You guessed it, about half of the decals silvered. My own stupid fault, but the Spitfire sits in hiding, ashamed to show the job I did on it. I have tried all sorts of things to fix it and nothing has worked. I intend to strip the paint and redo it properly, but now I can't find the decals for it. PCM has recently closed their doors, so I don't know how to get a replacement set. Zotz makes a nice set, sheet number 32-033, but I can't find anywhere online that has a set in stock. Does anyone know where I can get replacement decals? Either PCM or the Zotz set. Is there another set that is made for the Mk XIV? Help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    1/48 RAF Phantom markings

    Good morning all Does anyone know where I can get hold of one of these sets of markings for phamous phighter squadrons in 1/48 please? It doesn't have to be these specific aircraft in terms of serials, just the unit markings. I tried Hannants and RAM and eBay but to no avail.

    Can anyone tell me if there is a set of AM decals in 1/72 for Richard Turner's "Short Fuse Sallee", either cor his P-51B or P-51D, or both. Tried googleing for it yesterday but only came up with 1/48 which is not my scale. TIA DennisTheBear

    Has anyone used Monokio decals?

    Hi all! While browsing through an evil interweb site I came across a set of waterslide decals for the Northrop F-5 range of aircraft, by Monokio. Mysteriously they appeared in my mailbox 2 weeks later. Has anyone used Monokio decals? Specifically their ROKAF F-5A/B/E/F/RF-5A set (WD72001)? Any problems with them that are known? Any info would be much appreciated as I have a couple of F-5s that would look very cool in ROKAF markings. TIA! DennisTheBear
  21. Hi all, Recently picked up a Heng Long mk1 Tiger for £60, painted in Panzergrau. The previous owner was a bit hamfisted, by that I mean he put the stickers on lopsided, the wrong number on the turret and the mudflap securing clip was snapped off. So, my plan is to repaint it as "Semken's Tiger", the first tiger captured in Normandy by the Sherman of John Semken, commander of the Wiltshire Yeomanry. The tiger in question is Tiger 114, 2nd Kompanie, 101st SS Schwere Panzer Abteilung. So my question is, does anyone know how to get hold of the appropriate decals or painting masks? Found some masks online but the tank in question has two colours to it, looks like a dark red with white border, and the mask looks like only one single colour. Any suggestions?

    Vulcan help?

    I've just realised that the 'XH558' Airfix Vulcan instructions don't show the positioning for the plethora of underwing stencils that the old Airfix Vulcan decals have for the white one. Does anybody have a copy of the old Airfix decal instruction sheet they'd be willing to donate please? Or a scan of it - just showing where all those little blue stencils go? Thanks!
  23. Hello fellow modellers, Recently I've been building a few Hurricanes and Spitfires, along with some Bf 109's, to show the progressive changes in fighter camouflage. I've got to November 1940 and the change of scheme in Fighetr Command. There are precious few photos showing the late 1940 scheme with the black under wing. But there seems to be even less in the way of 1/72 decal sets for RAF fighter aircraft of this period. At least, I cannot find anything. I'm prepared to cobble someting togeteher, if I can find a reasonable photo reference. I'm aiming to use a Spitfire 1a (Airfix) that's being - slowly - assembled now. So I'm seeking help in finding the right aircraft and decals. Can anyone out there point me in the right direction? FatFlyHalf

    Decals over Xtreme Metal?

    Hi, I'm pretty impressed with the general tenor regarding the AK Interactive Xtreme Metal range but I find close to no information about laying decals on top of surface painted with this line. Applying a layer of gloss would probably take away a good part of the metallic sheen so I was wondering if the painted surfaces are glossy enough to accept decals directly? Did anyone tried this? Can you show us some images? I'd like to avoid investing in a new line (thinner, cleaner, paints, etc) just to find out they are not of much use. Many thanks in advance! Cristian

    Decals for JAL Disney Dream Express

    Hi, I stumbled upon the JAL Disney Dream Express images and started wondering if anybody does decals for these liveries. I guess it won't be easy nor cheap given the fact Disney is involved but I thought I'll ask. Brasil Decals apparently did a sheet (BD144-04) but it doesn't seem to be available on their site (anymore). Thanks! Cristian
