This new decal sheet from Spada Decals in 1/48 features 3 different Vickers Wellingtons from 1940 to 1942.  These decals are a very pleasant option to the kit decal sheet.  

The aircraft include;

  • Vickers Wellington Mk IC K*KX from 311 squadron in 1940. 

  • Vickers Wellington Mk IC JS*T from 16 OTU around 1942. 

  • Vickers Wellington Mk IC  Y from 37 Squadron in Egypt in 1942. 

I've always had a soft sopt for the Vickers Wellington since I saw one under restoration at Brooklands Museum in London, England.  It's outragous design was a throw back to earlier construction techniques that actually proved quite durable in battle.   This sheet gives you 3 aircaft including a Canadian bomber and another in desert camo.  The decals are contained on one decal sheet and are very finely printed on decals that are thin but will provide excellent colour coverage.  These decals are designed for the 1/48 scale Trumpeter kit.
