DECALS: Five options
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: I

For those who want to get the decals for the Rotol Spitfires separately, 3D-Kits has those available for you.

The decals have markings for two 54 squadron aircraft from March 1940. These are Mk.Is coded KL*T and KL*O. You would not use the starter bulge on this. These planes have the underside in evenly split black/white markings, so no underwing roundels.

Next is a 19 Squadron Mk.II from June of 1941. This is in the standard dark green/earth over sky colors of the time.

Finally, a 71 Squadron Spitfire II from 1941, the mount of Bill Dunn, America's first ace. This aircraft can be painted in either the brown and green scheme or the later green/grey markings.  

Decals are superbly printed by Fantasy Printshop. Apparently they glitched the proper shade so an addendum sheet is added to take care of that.

There are enough markings to build two of the options available on the sheet as long as one of them is a 54 Squadron plane. 

In all, it is an outstanding set and reasonably priced as well.
