This set provides markings for four examples:

The decals are nicely printed by Fantasy Printshop with the only down side being that the roundels are printed as two-layer decals with you getting the opportunity to center the red do

This release will provide you with some interesting options for your next early Spitfire project. You can obtain conversions directly from the website.
