Limited issue of 250 sheets

This new decal sheet from Model Alliance has markings for a very special 50th Anniversary decal sheet for the Royal Australian Navy and is available in 1/72 and 1/48 scale.  

Recommended kits in 1/72 scale is the Revell Sea King HAS.6 or the Fujimi Sea King HAR.3 or the Fujimi Sea King HAS.2 or the Airfix Sea King HAR.3.  

In 1/48 scale the recommended kits are either the Revell Sea King (Ex-Hasegawa Kit or the Hasegawa Sea King SH-3H kit.

You get a full set of markings including the colourful graphics and Great White Shark artwork for the sides of the rear fuselage.  The paint scheme is pretty straight forward blue/white grey scheme which will stand out quite well when finished. 

 

The decals themselves are flawless quality and very clearly printed on the 1/72 sample I have before me.  Colours look solid and will cover very well, but the decals appear thin and of a very high quality. 

The separate Shark artwork is beautifully done on the 1/72 scale sample before me. 

The instruction sheets include 4 view colour drawings of this special Aussie Sea King. All necessary information about painting is included as well as FS Federal Standard numbers, Humbrol, Modelmaster, Lifecolor and Xtracolour. 

This is a very cool decal sheet and sure to sell fast...buy 'em while you can.
