Techmod 72130: Finnish AF Insignia and Serials: 1934-1945

Units: See Review




Scott Van Aken

Techmod's 1/72 scale Finnish AF insignia and serials sheet covers the time period of 1934 until 1945 when the swastika-based insignia was replaced by standard roundels.

You get one sheet of insignia with both white and grey (Blue-Grey FS*5414 similar to RLM65) backgrounds 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 Ju-88 and Do-17 aircraft.. 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.
