1:72 Iliad Designs (72020)

Iliad Designs is a producer of decals, colour charts and books from Canada's capital city Ottawa. This sheet sees them continue their line of C-47 decals. Schemes for four aircraft are included, all of which are interesting in their own right. The aircraft in question are:

  • RCAF Dakota Mk.ii 659 from 115 Air Transport Unit, serving with the UN in the Sinia circa 1960.  Gloss white with high conspicuous red markings. 
  • C-47B 45-0884. Operated by Caraco Air Service in support of the US Nuclear Weapons programme. 
  • C-53 Troop transport version of the C-47. Civilian pilots from Northeast Airlines who flew between Goose Bay and the UK due to a shortage of Army Pilots.
  • C-47 used by the US Military Air Attache in Wellington, New Zealand. 

Aside from being an interesting collection of schemes, the decals themselves look to be of very good quality. The printing is crisp and sharp, while colours are bold and solid. They look thin and glossy on the sheet, so they should perform well.

Conclusion

This interesting sheet is nicely printed. If you have the (relatively) new Airfix kit or the older Italeri kit waiting for you to build it, then this sheet will enable you to produce a range of aircraft with interesting variation in markings. Highly recommended.
