Spares Box Decals 1/48 Photo Reference Targets (Square) Decal First Look
|Date of Review||December 2007||Manufacturer||Spares Box Decals|
|Subject||Photo Reference Targets (Square)||Scale||N/A|
|Set Number||SBD001||Pros||Replicates those distinctive photo instrumentation tracking marks|
Here's a new decal line worth noting. How many times have you seen an interesting test aircraft to model but it was going to be a major pain to replicate all of those photo reference markings? I've seen some models soldier on without them, but these test birds look far more authentic will all of their markings, even these strange photo reference marks.
Spares Box Decals have stepped up with this new release and it is a simple affair - they provide four different styles of photo reference marks in seven different sizes - 3,4,5,6,7.5,9,10.5 & 12mm. Four sets of each are included on the sheet.
These markings are fairly universal - you'll see these on US, UK, French, Soviet, and many other flight test aircraft from around the world. You'll want to stash a few sets of these away for future use as well. If you're looking for the round type, Spares Box Decals produces these as well (look here).
My sincere thanks to Spares Box Decals for this review sample!
