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 a variety of generic instruments typical of WW1 era aircraft from around the world.

WW1 Generic Instrument Dial

This set includes airspeed indicators, altimeters, engine instruments, and even a clock or two. The set provides a sufficient cross-section of styles of each instrument type to help you replicate the panels of any of your 1/32 scale WW1 aircraft subject.

With the advent of color-printed photo-etched parts from Eduard, many folks simply wait for Eduard to get around to doing a detail set for their subject, but here is a nice alternative where you can add the three-dimensional detail (knobs, switches, etc.) to your instrument panel and then place these instruments into the faces to complete that masterpiece look.

You can order this set at HobbyZone USA.

My sincere thanks to HobbyZone USA for this review sample!
