Eight 1/48 scale decal sheets have been released as their debut markings. These are:

  • FFDEC 001 - British Armoured Divisions, NWE, Set 1

  • FFDEC 002 - British Arm of Service Markings (large), NWE

  • FFDEC 003 - British Arm of Service (small), NWE

  • FFDEC 004 - British Squadron Markings and numbers (white), NWE

  • FFDEC 005 - British Squadron Markings and numbers (yellow), NWE

  • FFDEC 006 - British Squadron Markings and numbers (red), NWE

  • FFDEC 007 - British Squadron Markings and numbers (blue), NWE

  • FFDEC 008 - British Bridge Classification Disks, NWE

The use of these markings will be more versatile than the names imply. Many of these markings will be equally applicable to other Commonwealth vehicles, and in theatres other than North Western Europe.

Each set comprises a single decal sheet plus generic instructions. The decals are laser printed with the carrier film covering the entire sheet so the individual markings will have to be carefully cut out.

These new decals are a rare bonus for 1/48 scale modellers of British and Commonwealth subjects, and will be heartily welcomed.

Highly Recommended.

Thanks to Fighting 48th for the review sample
