This decal set is a release from Iliad Design. It originally only came with decals for 4 Hurricanes, not the 5 that this release comes with.
The instruction sheet also doubles as the cover image, folded in half with the decals in the center to keep from possible damage in the standard Ziploc bag. The instructions come in full color for each aircraft in the standard Hurricane colors, dark earth and dark green with ether aluminum underbelly or white and black. Also, some interesting information on each aircraft is included to make a more period correct plane.
This set provides enough decals to use on all 5 pre-war aircraft:
- Hurricane MK 1 L1568 of 73 Squadron
- MK 1 L1643 of 85th Squadron
- Mk 1 L1975 of 17th Squadron
- Mk 1 L1990 of 56th Squadron
- MK 1 315 of 1st Squadron RCAF
All the aircraft decals are separated by lines keeping each set grouped together, which makes it very easy to get what is needed without cutting up the sheet.
The decals are printed on light blue backing, colors are bright and nicely detailed.
If you are building a 1/48 MK 1 Hurricane I highly recommend these decals, the detail and quality are fantastic. I can’t wait to build the aircraft and use these.
Thank you, Iliad Designs, for supplying this set to IPMS USA.
