It has been a while (as in December 2013) since I last had the opportunity to review a set of Fundekals and I have to say that this set is one that should get a lot of modelers interested in obtaining a set. The set comes with two sheets. One sheet has the unit badges, large serial numbers in both black and light blue, as well as all three different types of roundels for pretty much every Vulcan B.2 that has ever flown. The other sheet contains data markings, radome bits (at least those that are in a tan color) as well as the smaller serial numbers that one finds on the nose gear door.
The decal sheet itself is superbly printed and show no errors in registration. Since this is 1/72, you'll either be using the Airfix kit or one of the older vacuformed kits that were produced before Airfix released theirs. What makes these decals somewhat different is that they do not come to you with instructions and require you to download them from their web site. They come in .pdf format and provide markings placement guides for a ton of different aircraft. The instructions are in full color and give upper and lower camo schemes where required. They also provide a full data placement guide for the different schemes. Notes are provided for those aircraft powered by different engines and those adapted for different missions, as there were differences between Vulcans. Finally, the instructions have a number of very nice photos, many of them in full color. In case you are wondering about the RNZAF roundel, that was a zap.
In all, a great sheet that will be much appreciated by the Vulcan modeler who wants to do something aside from what comes in the kit box.
Thanks to Fundekals for the review sheet. You can find this set at Fundekals web site.
