This interesting release just arrived in the mailbox today. From Max Decals in Ireland, set number 7220 covers the Irish Air Corps between 1956 and 2010. There's a little for everyone here. This set compliments the previous release featuring Irish Air Corps subjects between 1922-1956 (look here).
This decal set comes on one sheet and provides markings for 10 aircraft:
- Provost, 189
- DHC.1 Chipmunk, 169, 1952
- DHC.1 Chipmunk, 164, BFTS, 1968
- King Air 200, 234

- Cessna 172H, 206
- Vampire T.55, 186

In addition, markings are also provided for five 1/35 armored vehicles:
- Rolls Royce 1920 Armored Car
- DUKW, 1949
- Churchill Mk.VI, 1949
- Scorpion Tank, 1985
- Ford Truck 1939/40
Each subject comes with the unique stenciling and markings used by the IAC and as provided, you can build and mark up nearly all of the subjects.
The instructions provide good paint and marking references as well as an invaluable list of sources for each of these subjects. If you're looking for some different markings for your next project, these colorful Irish Air Corps subjects are just the ticket.
