Very interesting. Sadly no-one in the UK has them. :(
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 a couple of sheets of Mike Grant's, but unfortunately he doesn't do them any more  :-\

Hannants have the Print Scale Smoke Rings on back order, but there are some nice other options here https://www.hannants.co.uk/search/index.php?product_category_id=&product_division_id=&manufacturer_id=362108&code=&product_type_id=&scale_id=956&keyword_search=&setPerPage=25&currency_id=.

Print Scale seem to be aircraft type/theatre specific ?

Thanks Chris, that lot didn't show up with my Big H search. :9(

Their search engine is a bit hit and miss I find.

I find it has a mind of its own and can be a bit "picky" at times. Must admit I just looked for Print Scale with this search.

Quite often I find it can be easier to find a kit and then look at all the extras for it, when using it.

I'm not sure anyone does a kit for the Savoia Marchetti SM-77 though.  ;D

Some of those other 'Camo decals' look well worth trying though, thanks.  :thumbsup:

Tauro Model in Italy have six different sheets of Italian cammos, they have an online store
and an ebay store.

All SORTS of possibilities there!

I'd forgotten about Tauro, thanks Jon.  :thumbsup:

 I didn't think they were still going actually.

I love the naming on TM456, Italian Amoebas and Worms.  ;D
