Decal Review

This sheet offers markings for the following options
• 'Black 423', Norwegian Air Force, April 1940
• 'White 38', 1 Escadrille, 1 Groupe, Belgian Air Force, Schaffen, 1938
• 'White 2906', China Guomindang Air Force, 1937
• 'Black 187', 21 Mira, Royal Hellenic Air Force, 1940

The instructions list all colours by name and Revell or Tamiya paint ranges and the decal sheet is beautifully printed, being nice and glossy with limited excess carrier film. The sheet also includes the black and white strips of the Norwegian option, all the remaining red areas you will have to paint on yourself first.

As ICM couldn't offer all the options they wanted in the kit, offering these four separately makes perfect sense and thus allows modellers to either go with the kit options, or those offered here. Highly recommended to all with their Gladiator Mk I in their build pile.

Our thanks to ICM (www.icm.com.ua) for the review sample. UK modellers can obtain this sheet from Hannants here.​
