Spares Box Decals 1/72 Helvetica Style Letters and Numbers Decal First Look
By Michael Benolkin
|Date of Review||January 2008||Manufacturer||Spares Box Decals|
|Subject||Helvetica Style Letters and Numbers||Scale||1/72|
|Set Number||SBD003||Pros||Generic 4" and 8" (in 1/72 scale) letters and numbers|
Here's a recent release from Fineline in their Spares Box Decals line - generic letters and numbers sized for most 1/72 scale applications. The font here is Helvetica and these characters are 1.4 and 2.8mm high, which scale out to 4" and 8" letters and numbers in 1/72 scale.
These decals are standard waterslide decals rather than Alps-printed, so the registry on these characters are sharp and usable in many applications.
If you're doing a custom color scheme and there just aren't pre-printed markings for the job, it is great to have a supply of generic letters and numbers in your spares box!
