airscale | Generic WWI Instrument Dials (AS32 WWI)
Reviewed by Kevin Williams
airscale is already known to have brought many aviation related detailing decals to market, and this is but one of those sets. Designed as an enhancement for any WWI aircraft (probably best suited for Roden/Encore kits), these instrument dials can go a long way toward improving any WWI cockpit, with things like altimeter, oil pressure, tachometer, bank indicator, etc., and will lend that 'certain something' to what may otherwise just be a bland piece of wood, as many WWI fighter types used as an instrument panel.
Instructions are fairly basic, giving a chart that identifies what instruments are what. Both Allied and German instrumentation are given in this set.
Set consists of one very nicely printed decal sheet, that appears to be in great register and quite opaque, as well as a sheet of clear plastic, to be punched out as corresponding instrument glass, a nice touch from airscale.
All things considered, if you're looking for a simple way to dress up your 1:32 WWI aircraft models, this item just might be the ticket, as it provides the basis for a very attractive, realistic and simple enhancement.
This product is highly recommended for overall quality and detail.

Thanks to my wallet for the review sample.
Additional recommended (by me), reference/reading material:
(None specifically as such, as this set is too generic, though for all WWI aviation reference, my first choice is always Albatros Productions Windsock Datafiles.)
