Eagle Editions | EC#32-174: Spitfire Mk Ia
Reviewed by Kevin Futter
Eagle Editions has just released a new decal set covering the Spitfire Mk Ia. The set provides two main sheets, plus a small supplemental sheet of national markings.
A full set of airframe stencils is also provided, along with markings for the following three aircraft:
- KL-B, N3180, 'Kiwi', No. 54 Sqn, 23 May 1940;
- QV-I, X4474, No. 19 Sqn, September 1940;
- LZ-N, R6800, No. 66 Sqn, October 1940.
The decals themselves are exquisitely printed by Cartograf, and feature crisp printing, solid colours, and perfect registration.
The instructions come on a folded A3 sheet, are full colour throughout, and carefully annotated with respect to each of the included schemes. A full set of stencil placement diagrams is also included.
This is an excellent decal set, well-printed, and supported by excellent instructions. Each of the included schemes has something different to offer—especially the undersides, with examples of the black/white, Duck Egg Green (Sky), and Duck Egg Blue (Provisional) schemes. Highly recommended.
Thanks to Eagle Editions for the review sample.
