New decal sheet from DP Casper in Hannants - India/Pakistan 1971. IIRC, quite a few peeps on here would find these interesting:

I've got a few of these DP Casper "Campaign" sheets and they are very good value for money

Quite nice schemes indeed.  The Czech machines are particularly striking

There's more than just these two. Check out their website: CLICKY!. They have covered lots of "forgotten" operations with some options that could be very appealing to whiffers.

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

Oooooh, LOTS of good stuff there, and Big H have half of them in stock too!  :thumbsup:

That's an interesting concept, doing both sides of a given operation on one sheet, I don't think I've ever seen that done before.
Kit's Rule 1 ) Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
Kit's Rule 2) The backstory can always be changed to suit the model

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Agree wholeheartedly on both points.  I Googled their site and was amazed at the breadth of subjects offered.

I've got quite a few of their "operational" sheets and they are excellent value. Reccomended

I've got the modern Czech sheet mentioned earlier, although the marking options are plain grey the colour schemes are mostly eyecatching & it gives good diagrams with FS Numbers.
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Blimey, that's a MONSTER decal sheet!  :o

Can you build all the aircraft on the front page from the decals provided? It'd be a lifetime's job!

Kit there are 36 aircraft on the sheet and yes you get the markings for all of them. As I said they are excellent value. The options may not be the most colourfull but they cover the types used in an operation very well. I'm currently using their Java Sea sheet for a project  :thumbsup:

The British Pacific Fleet's strike on Sumatra's Oil facilities in January 1945 as they transited to Australia. Should be an interesting mix of FAA schemes and markings plus Japanese defenders
