Very nice - I have pans for the same aircraft using the same kit. Roodecals?

Hiya Rob
Thanks!
They are Roodecals. I have had them for many years and they had yellowed a bit so I put them between 2 panes of glass and left them in the sun for a while then gave them a coat of Microscale Liquid Decal Film and they looked and behaved just like new ones.

I have previously sprayed various varnishes on old decals with varying success but the Microscale stuff is spot on and a little bottle will last for years.

All the best Rob
Cheers
Shaun
