|Date of Review||May 2012||Manufacturer||Aviaeology Decals|
|Set Number||48004||Pros||Three aircraft options|
|Cons||Nothing noted||Skill Level||Basic|
Aviaeology Decals has reissued their first installment of RCAF Sunderlands in 1/48 scale and has made some corrections/revisions in this release. This set is for either the Sinifer or Alpha Flight 1/48 Sunderland kits. This decal set comes on one sheet and provides markings for three aircraft:
- Sunderland GR.III, EK591, 422 Sqn, 2-U, RAF Coastal Command, Castle Archdale, Ireland, 1944
- Sunderland GR.III, DD859, 423 Sqn, 3-G, RAF Coastal Command, Castle Archdale, Ireland, 1943
- Sunderland GR.III, ML825, 423 Sqn, AB-D, RAF Coastal Command, Castle Archdale, Ireland, 1944
The instructions are printed in black and white, which means a number of the illustrations are going to be hard to see given that the gray shades blend together. Nevertheless, you can pick out what's happening with a little squinting and render one of these three great examples.

My sincere thanks to Aviaeology Decals for this review sample!
