This provides decals for 3 Avro Anson aircraft used by the RAAF. The RAAF would use over 1000 of these aircraft mainly as trainers but also as Maritime Patrol aircraft in the days where they had little else.  The three decal options on the sheet are;

 

1. AW665 code PP-B used by 71 Sqn from Lowood (QLD) in October 1943 used for Coastal Command camouflage trials. This aircraft featured Foliage Green/Earth Brown top sides, Gloss white undersides, and the fuselage sides in matt white.

2.  JD287 code PP-K used by 71 Sqn Md War.  In RAF Camo of Dark Green/ Dark Brown and Sky undersides.

Conclusion
This is a great sheet if you fancy something different or antipodean for your Anson. The decals are great and the supporting 8 pages of documentation is first rate.  Highly Recommended.
