    Is there anywhere I can by RAF Squadron codes decals in 1/48 and 1/72?
    Ideally,I would like a sheet containing about 4 of each letter of the alphabet.
    I have seen some at Squadron.com but they appear to have none in stock.:(
    I have already planned my 1/48 builds for the Battle of Britain GB but I will need custom decals as there don't appear to be any kits for the particular pilots I have in mind.
    Also,I will be making a 1/72 airfield diorama and would obviously like a few aircraft of the same squadron.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers,
    Tony.:)

    They're available in all major scales form Hannant's, by at least two manufacturers's, Xtradecal (i.e. what was Microscale) being the main one. Colours are Sky, Medium Sea Grey (BoB era) and black for some post-war, plus Dull Red. Depending on scale, there are normallyper scale and style before ordering.

    Ok,I think I'm going insane!:shock:
    I am able to find the required decal sheets for 1/48 and also 1/32 but I cannot find anything for 1/72.
    It doesn't make sense,Both Xtradecal and Colorado make Roundels and serial numbers in all scales but when it comes to medium sea grey squadron codes,there is absolutely nothing in 1/72!!:evil:
    Am I missing something here?
    Cheers,
    Tony.
    EDIT - Ignore this rant,I found what I'm after!:)
