Exito Decals New Releases
Exito Decals strikes back with two news sets available both in 1/48 and 1/72 scale. Our third decal set is entitled “Sexy Spitfires” and includes markings for three aircraft:
- Spitfire LF Mk.Vb (EN921), coded YO-A of No. 401 Sqn RCAF, flown by F/O Jack Sheppard, Redhill / Staplehurst / Biggin Hill, UK, July-October 1943.
- Spitfire LF Mk.VIII (MT841), coded U of No. 2 Sqn RIAF, Kohat, British India, spring 1946.
- Spitfire LF Mk.IXe (TA864), coded LW-L of No. 318 (Gdanski) Sqn RAF, flown by P/O Zdzisław Uchwat, Risano near Udine, Italy, May-June 1945.
All aircraft feature sexy nose art which is rarely seen on Supermarine Spitfires. For the very first time, artwork and markings of MT841 are correctly reproduced in decal form. This set is available directly from the manufacturer:

Our 4th decal set is entitled “Luftwaffe Ground Attackers vol.1” and covers three different German assault aircraft:
- Junkers Ju 87 D-3, W.Nr. 100082 (Stkz. BP+DD), coded T6+HN of 5./StG. 2, Achtirskaya, USSR, early summer 1942.
- Henschel Hs 129 B-2, W.Nr. 0140405, coded <▲+H of 4.(Pz)/Sch.G. 1, USSR, summer 1943.
- Focke-Wulf Fw 190 F-8, coded Winkel Dreieck, flown by Maj. Theodor Nordmann, Kommandeur of II./SG 3, Riga-Spilve, Latvia, August 1944.
The markings for the Stuka named ‘Hundesohn’ (‘Son of a bitch’) and Fw 190 F-8 of the famous ace, Maj. Nordmann (awarded with Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves and Swords), have never been reproduced in decal form before, whilst this particular Hs 129 did not receive enough attention from other manufacturers. Decals contain a bonus set of stencils for the Hs 129, which are mostly missing or are incorrectly depicted in the decals supplied with Hasegawa and Italeri kits. This set is available directly from the manufacturer:
- in 1/48 scale: https://exito.site/en_GB/p/EXITO-DECALS-ED48004-148-Luftwaffe-Ground-Attackers-vol.1-Ju-87-D-3%2C-Hs-129%2C-Fw-190F-8/49233
- in 1/72 scale: https://exito.site/en_GB/p/EXITO-DECALS-ED72004-172-Luftwaffe-Ground-Attackers-vol.1-Ju-87-D-3%2C-Hs-129%2C-Fw-190F-8/49232
As previously, the decal sheets are printed by industry leader, Cartograf of Italy, which ensures top printing quality and ease of application. These are complemented by instructions that differ from the plain market standard. What you get are essentially high quality posters with accurate and inspiring illustrations created by Janusz Swiatlon. Each subject is presented on an A4-sized sheet, with large side aircraft profiles printed on the front, and the remaining artwork, photos and all necessary information laid out on the rear side. This way you not only get some cool decals for your model kit, but also attractive posters to adorn your man cave, at the same time!
