Hi Mark

Yes they have re released or printed old versions from Trumpy s days. 

I'm not sure if these decals designed for old Trumpeter's kit would fit perfectly in GWH's kit. Because Trumpy's Tomahawk has some size issues including nose width and height

Also, the decals that I expect to be published are from the pre-North African era. Like the following schemes.

Cheers

Great news Judy! Thank you.

 

Can I ask - is there a reason that you have a black outline to the ‘FU’ codes for the 453 Squadron option (based on your smaller scale sheets)? My understanding is that the areas around these code letters was the underlying camouflage, where the invasion stripes were painted closely to the codes but not up to meet them. I can see how this may make it easier for modellers to get a similar result, but can you provide the option of no black outline to these codes?

Hi Pete;

We don't have a black outline on the decals themselves. I believe we did have the black outline on the smaller scales, but in this larger scale it will be up to the modeler to paint the invasion stripes up to the codes. Here is a close-up of the codes on the Spit and a cropped image of the decals. Disregard the red, that is for Cartograf to place the carrier film. Hope this helps you,
