This new decal
sheet from WINTERVALLEY
provides markings and stencils for one of 5
Avro CF-105 Arrow Mk1's in 1:72 scale. The set includes correctly sided
Canadian Red Ensign flags and the additional walkway markings found on
RL-203. It also includes decals to simulate the engine vents and openings
found on the rear of the aircraft that are not molded into the kit parts.
The sheet was
created using references from a multitude of sources including "The
Avro Arrow" - Boston Mills Press. It can be used on any 1:72 scale
Arrow kit however the 'New Tooling' Hobbycraft Canada kit (1393) is
recommended as it has the more accurate overall size and shape.

The instruction sheet is
well laid out and easy to follow. The single water slide decal sheet is of
the highest quality and very clearly printed. You get a full set of
stencils including slight variations in the stencils for the different
aircraft. The paint codes are listed for 3 different brands of
This sheet is
amazing and well worth picking up for the 1/72 Avro Arrow modeler. It
corrects many of the inaccuracies found in the kit decal sheet and permits you
to build one of the first 5 test aircraft. This is one very cool sheet.
I would like
to thank WINTERVALLEY
for providing me with
this product sample.
