Looking for decals
« on: July 07, 2012, 10:10:34 AM »
Hi folks,

Does anyone know if you can get 1/48 decals so as to model one of the civilian Fw200s such as that shown below?



Regards,

Greg

FRsin does that Condor in 1/144 Greg, it might be worth an email to them to see if they could do the sheet in another scale.

another option would be to obtain a set of the Revell 72 scale markings and print them onto decal paper in 48th. I did similar when i scanned then printed them in blue to make an Aero airline machine in 72 scale  8)

cheers, Joe

Anyone have the following roundels that are excess to their needs?:

Federation of Rhodesia & Nyasaland Air Force Roundel (1954–1963)



Royal Rhodesian Air Force Roundel (1963–1970)



Rhodesian Air Force Roundel (1970–1980)


Preference for the 1963-1970 roundels but will take what ever is available. 

Thanks,

I might, though it depends on the scale.

Hi Evan,

1/48th or 1/72nd works for me.  Size of the roundel may not really be that much of an issue since it is not a RLT subject I am trying to come up with.

Let me look through my decals (may take a while but this is a holiday period).  ISTR that I've got some in 1/48 but I need to check that before committing to anything.

Still digging, but I know I've got the 1963-1970 and 1970-1980 roundels in 1/72 from an Xtradecal set on International Hunters (also have 'em in 1/144).  I'm still checking to see what I have in 1/48.

Okay, I've got a Cutting Edge Hunter sheet that has the 1963-1970 roundels in 1/48.  Which of the sets I have best suit your needs?

Hi Evan,

I think the 1:48th scale 1963-1970 roundels will be the best choice.  If memory serves me these roundels were not overly large to begin with so anything smaller would probably not be practical. 

Thanks again for helping out.  Had no clue RhAF markings would be such a challenge to source.
