MDC released their excellent 1/32 scale cockpits for Hasegawa's
Messerschmitt Bf 109 and Fw 190 kits, they included decals to be applied
to flat dials representing individual instruments. This was a very
convincing and detailed method for creating instruments.
MDC has now released a series of decals for
Luftwaffe and RAF/FAA instruments that can be used on a wide range of
1/32 scale German and British aircraft subjects. The decals are crisply
rendered and well detailed.
Each decal set includes instructions that indicate
the specific type of instrument.
In addition to the instruments, MDC supplies ten
data plate decals on the Luftwaffe sheet for use inside and outside the
The decals themselves are well printed with an
absolute minimum of carrier film, so no trimming will be required. The
decals are printed with black ink for the dial and white for the needles
and increments, so you will not need to paint a backing colour on the
instrument panel dial positions.
I tested the decals on the instrument pane from
Hasegawa's recent 1/32 scale Fw 190A-8. I applied the decals straight
over the top of the raised detail on the plastic dials and the decals
settled down nicely, responding well to a coat of Gunze Mr Mark Softer.
MDC's instrument decals are simple yet very
effective, and will be especially useful in these larger scales.
