Shelf Oddity - corrected Beverley decals
« on: October 25, 2019, 04:13:30 am »
Shelf Oddity do a variety of parts and decals for small scale stuff, i.e. 1/144th aircraft and 1/350th & 1/700th ships:

Apparently, there's a typo on the decal sheet of the Mirco-Mir Blackburn Beverley thus:

ROYAL AIR FORCE MIDLE EAST

(should be two 'D's in 'middle' for non-native-English speakers)


Shelf-Oddity do a replacement set:  https://shelfoddity.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=25_65&product_id=171

(Also available via Coastal Craft.)

If you've got a Beverley in the stash and havn't noticed the error yet, you might want to snag one of these decal sets since they may not be around forever.

Their PE detail set for the Bev looks pretty awesome too.

Until you remember that it's 1/144 scale so those extras are TINY!  :o
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

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

I have seen those Beverleys built and they ARE minute. The detail is astounding too, at least on one I saw.

There was a 1/72 resin one at one stage too.

But it caused a world resin shortage before long and it was withdrawn from sale....  ;D
