Available from various hobby shops, or direct from Iliad Design. Our sincere thanks to Bob M. for supplying our review sample
You will see that we have reviewed several Iliad Design decal sheets in the past (see the manufacturers’ List to the right) and all have come upto the highest quality standards we now expect as modellers and this new sheet is no different.
The subjects are excellent, offering six alternative schemes that will work very well on any of the subject kits you can get your hands on that feature the Beechcraft 17. Roden, AMT and ESCI/ERTL have all produced 1:48 kits at some time or another.
You can see the specific aircraft featured in the attached photo and video.
As I mentioned the quality of these decals is amongst the best available – all markings in register, authentic colours and nicely opaque and minimal carrier film.
You’ll have a hard choice deciding on which scheme to use! Perhaps the greatest advantage of a set like this is that different aircraft are featured and this means discrete sets for each so you could use the whole sheet! How much better is this than those sheets where you use maybe only one set from a much bigger choice provided, tobe let down by a lack of duplicate national insignia etc.
