1:72 Exito Decals

Polish company Exito are an online retailer of all things scale modelling. They also have a nice line in decals with a 'twist'. Unlike most rivals, their sets are packed into large, A4 sized packets backed with a piece of heavy card. Each of the schemes included on the sheet is replicated as a high-quality colour print on thick, glossy card, with a painting diagram and other information on the reverse. The overall impression is of a very high quality product, albeit one which is surprisingly reasonably priced.

The set includes markings for three aircraft:

  • Junkers Ju 87 D-3, W.Nr. 100082 (Stkz. BP+DD), coded T6+HN of 5./StG. 2, Achtirskaya, USSR, early summer 1942;
  • Henschel Hs 129 B-2, W.Nr. 140405 of 4.(Pz)/Sch.G.1, USSR, summer 1942; and
  • Focke-Wulf Fw 190 F-8, flown by Major Theodor Nordmann, Kommandeur of II./SG 3, Riga-Spilve, Latvia, 1944

There is no secondary theme that ties these schemes together, other than the that described in the title. The decals themselves are printed 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.  Helpfully, there are sufficient national markings on the sheet to model each of the three options. Colour references are provided for Mr Hobby and AK Interactive, as well as the RLM codes appropriate for each shade. 

 

Conclusion

 

This is yet another professional and attractive package from Exito.  As well as some interesting decals printed by the company everyone else is measured against, 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.  Highly recommended.
