REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES:  

From Fantasy Printshop, a line of roundels in 1/72 scale. This sheet is somewhat unique is that there is no clear varnish coating over the decals. This means that there is no worries about silvering of the clear film. It also means that one has to be a bit more cautious in handling these. The instructions state that these should be in water no longer than a second or two or they will curl. However, the end result will be well worth the additional handling precautions.

This particular sheet is for Type A.1 roundels for mostly pre and early war aircraft. The wide yellow surround is a feature of early war planes to help keep them from issues with friendly fire. As such these were only used on the fuselage sides and upper wing. The sheet provides two sizes; 35" for the fuselage and 49" for the upper wings. The sheet is also available for 1/48 and 1/32 modelers.
