First Look

Lifelike Decals from Japan turns out some colorful and nicely printed subjects. In this set, we have four distinctive Spitfires providing a nice cross-section of fighter groups. The four aircraft presented here are:

Fw 190 Fw 190

  • Spitfire Mk.Vb, AD196, 71 Sqn, RAF, XR-Q, as flown by Sgt Jack Evans
  • Spitfire Mk.Vb Trop, 4 FS/52 FG/USAAF, WD-A, as flown by F/O James Montgomery
  • Spitfire Mk.Vb, EN824, 453 Sqn, RAF, FU-U, as flown by P/O John Yarra
  • Spitfire Mk.Vb Trop, ER821, 92 Sqn, RAF, QJ-R, as flown by F/L Neville Duke

As you can see in the decal images and profiles, this set provides some distinctive color schemes. This set was designed for virtually any of the 1/72 Spitfire Mk.Vb kits.

You can purchase these decals directly from Lifelike Decals. My sincere thanks to Lifelike Decals for this review sample!
