Lifelike Decals from Japan turns out some colorful and nicely printed subjects. In this re-issued set, we have four distinctive Supermarine Spitfire Mk.XVIe recommended for the Heller kit.
This decal set provides markings for four aircraft:
- Spitfire LF.XVIe, SL721, RAF Chief Air Command, J-MR, as flown by Air Marshall Sir James Robb, 1946
- Spitfire LF.XVIe, TB900, 349 (Belgium) Sqn, D-GE, 1946
- Spitfire LF.XVIe, TD231, 350 Sqn, Belgian AF, MN-J, 1946
- Spitfire LF.XVIe, TE199, 21 Group, 1948
As you can see in the decal image, this set comes complete with a full set of national markings, distinctive unit markings, and a wealth of maintenance stencils. If you're looking for a colorful alternative that isn't from the mainstream Superscale/Eagle Strike/Aeromaster line-up, here is a nice way to be different!
You can purchase these decals directly from Lifelike Decals. My sincere thanks to Lifelike Decals for this review sample!
