#72037 1/72 scale Decal sheet
Review by Steve Bamford (ARC Staff)
This is the first of many decals from a company out of Europe that has a large selection of decals in 1/72 and 1/48 of Eastern Bloc planes as well as some western planes. This particular decal sheet comes in 1/72 and 1/48 and gives you the options of doing 7 different aircraft including the Soviet AF 1989, Ukrainian AF1992, two planes from the Polish Navy 1994, Yugoslav AF 1993, Croatian AF 1993, and East German AF 1978. The quality of this decal sheet is quite good. All colours are perfectly in register and the printing is very crisp and clear. The colours are very accurate looking and the scan below does not come close to showing the high quality of this sheet. One of the many interesting planes on this sheet is a MiG-21 bis Fishbed L "Avenger of Dubrovnik", 1st Fighter Sqn, Croatian Air Force, 1993.......no doubt this was due to the shelling of the city Dubrovnik. The Soviet and Ukrainian planes on this sheet have tan and green upper surfaces and blue undersides....others have grey upper surfaces and two are bare metal, so there are plenty of painting options. One final aspect I like about this sheet is they provide a white round decal for placing under another decal to make sure the colourful decal on top doesn't have it's colour compromised by the dark camo paint underneath.
