First Look

Airscale from the UK produces a series of instrument face decals and has recently expanded their range as you can see here. In this release, we have every instrument and placard found in the Hawker Typhoon Mk.1B replicated here in full color just in time for Airfix's new 1/24 scale Typhoon kit.

Even with this image, you may not see the details replicated by Airscale in this set but each of the relevant instruments have color safety and warning arcs on the faces, the landing gear indicator has colored position indicators, and even the clock has yellowed hands. Airscale has provided options for installing these instrument faces from behind or from the front of the instrument panel and once they are in place, the various placards are placed next.

This is a nice enhancement for the Typhoon kit and will render clearer instrument details than even color-printed photo-etch could produce. Get a set for your Typhoon build now!

My sincere thanks to Airscale for this review sample!
