Aviaeology Decals has released a nice set of red ensign markings worn on the tails of Canadian military and government aircraft. This set provides not only a variety of flag sizes but also the different styles of shields that were overlaid onto these flags. The shields themselves varied over time withe the upper and lower halves changing, so the shields halves are printed separately so you can find the right combination of styles needed to replicate the tail markings on the airfraft you're modeling. These markings apply to aircraft in service between 1954 and 1965.
These tail markings sets will be a handy resource for your RCAF projects where you want to get properly depict the subject as it appeared in RCAF service.
