Let’s face it, British aircraft are pretty standard as far as camouflage goes, however, they sometimes exercised some individualism in personal aircraft. This release from Foxbot decals deals with just that.

Inside of the resealable baggie, is a single sheet of 8.5 x 11 heavy stock paper folded in half to provide some protection. The instructions are printed in full color and feature the profile view for six aircraft. On the backside of the instructions are stencils and the color callouts using FS numbers, Humbrol, Model Master and AKAN paints. The plan view is also shown with both the A and B scheme.

The decals themselves are printed in perfect register and suitably thin. I can’t determine who printed them. There is a set of stencils included and various roundels that are needed for the subjects. The aircraft that stands out to me is one from Corsica with a red fuselage band and spinner with red letters with a white border. Very colorful. One other interesting subject is a Spit with just white stripes on the fuselage. No black stripes and no invasion stripes on the wings.

A beautiful sheet for a beautiful airplane. The decals are excellent and will add to your Spitfire kit. Another great sheet from Foxbot. This is the third of the ‘Presentation’ Spitfires so check out the rest of their catalog as well. Excellent quality.

Highly recommended

Thanks to Foxbot and IPMS/USA for the review sample. In the US, you can obtain yours though Kitlinx. Let them know IPMS/USA sent you.
