Techmod 48074: Finnish AF Insignia and Serials: 1944-1945

Units: See Review




Scott Van Aken

This next set from Techmod offers three large sheets in 1/48 scale covering the Finnish Air Force from 1934 until 1944. During this time period, the white background was found to be too easy to see so was substituted with a  grey (Blue-Grey FS*5414 similar to RLM65).

You get one sheet of grey background insignia and two identical sheets of serials numbers. These latter items are in three different shades; one black, one olive green, and a small selection in white for the Ju-88 and Do-17. There are enough in several sizes to do just about any aircraft you can think of. In fact, there are seven sizes of insignia and five heights of serials. Included is an instruction sheet that shows the standard placement of these markings. The Finnish AF was quite specific on placement so you can use this guide with confidence.

The decals themselves are superbly printed and quite thin, making for a logical choice for your next project.
