This sheet for the 1/48 modeler has markings for six Blenheim I/IF aircraft. These are all prewar or early war RAF schemes of dark green/dark earth over black. There are other variations provided so you don't have to do a standard scheme if you do not wish to.
Undoubtedly spurred by the nearing release of the Airfix kit, this sheet can also be used on the Classic Airframes version, assuming you can find one and assuming you still want to build it. With the Airfix kit retailing at 50 pounds sterling, the CA kit may well be a reasonable option, especially if you currently own one.
So here is what is on the sheet:
114 Squadron plane based at Wyton in 1937.
Next is a 90 Squadron plane from Bicester in 1938. This has the low visibility 'Munich Crisis insignia.
From mid 1939 is a plane of 601 Squadron based at Hendon. This is a IF so has the black/white underside.
From 211 Squadron based in Greece during 1940 is this plane in a desert scheme of dark earth/middle stone over Mediterranean Blue.
The second IF is this all black plane from 54 OTU at Church Fenton in 1940.
Finally, one in FAA colors of dark slate grey/extra dark sea grey over sky is a 771 NAS plane based at Hatston in the Orkney islands during 1942.
The decals are superbly printed and the sheet comes with a full color markings placement guide that offers a four view of each option.
