RAM Models is a model company out of Britain that is expanding into the decal market. This latest release provides four special markings options for the Vickers VC10 C.1K tanker designed for the RAM Models kit but should also work with the Welsh Models kit as well.
The subjects included in this set:
- VC10 C.Mk.1K, XV104, 101 Sqn, RAF Brize Norton, 2006, '40 Years of RAF Service'
- VC10 C.Mk.1K, XV102, 101 Sqn, RAF Brize Norton, 2007, 'Celebrating 1000 Yrs of Oxfordshire'
- VC10 C.Mk.1K, XV105, 101 Sqn, RAF Brize Norton, 2008, '90th Anniversary of 101 Sqn'
- VC10 C.Mk.1K, XR808, 101 Sqn, RAF Brize Norton, 2011, '95th Anniversary of 101 Sqn'
The full-color instructions provide color and marking information for each subject. The decals are nicely printed and provide good painting instructions with color identified in the Xtracolor paint series.
If you're looking for some unique subjects for your next VC10 project, these anniversary schemes will provide some eye-catching options. These decals are available directly from their website.
