I have never featured so many WW1 sets as I have in the last year, and this month Spada decals have supplied there latest 1/32 sheets which are also available in the smaller scales. The full colour bi-lingual instructions provide you with colour side views with informative information. It is worth noting that all of these sheets are in the Laser Line series so have an overall carrier film, not a big problem as you always have to cut out a decal from the sheet, but they may be slightly more delicate than conventional silk screen printed products.

Spada decals can be ordered direct from their website at www. spada-decals. com.A very interesting selection of new releases and I know that one of the magazine’s reviewers got very over excited when I showed him the Albatross sheets. Personally the Hellcat sheet was much more up my street and of course perfectly timed with the recant release of Trumpeter’s new kit. Next month we should have more WW1 sheets plus another French Navy sheet – this time for one of the most attractive single engine fighters ever produced, the Grumman Bearcat.
