Piper L-4 Grasshopper
With the release of the Special Hobbies and Sabre Kits, the Piper L-4 kits the market cried out for some marking options. Iliad Designs answered the call with their L-4 offering.
Enclosed in a 6 x 9 Ziploc baggie, are an instruction sheet and one sheet of decals. The instructions are in full color on both sides for SIX colorful options. They are just not the plain-jane OD over Neutral Grey, although there are four, but there is also a silver doped one and one in sand camouflaged. For those looking for something different, there is one French aircraft and one with D-Day stripes with a French fin flash. How about a US Navy one? Yup, Iliad has you covered. The side views are on the front and the plan views are on the back. A little bit of the history of each aircraft is covered on the front side.
I’m not sure who printed the decals, but they are very crisp with good color saturation. They look suitably thin, as well as, being in perfect register.
Colorful marking options, well-researched, perfect decals. What more could you ask for in a decal sheet? The marking options give you a variety. I’ll definitely be using them on my Grasshopper.
