Spares Box Decals 003/004 Letters and Numbers

Units: quite a few, I imagine

Spares Box Decals is probably a new name to you as it is to me. For their first offerings are in the form of letters and numbers sheets. These are printed in the Helvetica style that is quite common for RAF/RN aircraft as well as being seen on some KC-135s, S-3s, NASA, Coast Guard and other aircraft. This makes the sheet handy for those who want to model a specific serial numbered aircraft.

Sheet 003 (on the left) is 4" and 8" 1/72 size while 004 is 6" 1/72 (4" 1/48) and 6" 1/48 (4" 1/32). I've shown an enlarged closeup of sections of both sheets. Both of these sheets are printed in black ink. The decals are covered by a solid carrier film so each letter or number will need to be cut out. These are a great replacement for the quite old Modeldecal sheet that many of us have used in the past. The sheets can be purchased direct from the link below.

My thanks to Spares Box Decals for the review sheets.
