We have just released some new 1/32nd scale RAAF Beaufighter decals.

A8-23 was an Australian built Beaufighter Mk 21.
Note that two tiger decals for the nose are included. The second one is a spare.

Hi Malcolm,

Nice release - thanks! 

Just curious though. In the photo of A8-116, what do you think that large pale patch is on the mid-upper fuselage? Seems to be on the top of the starboard wing too.

Bye for now,

Brett

Hi Brett,

I've pondered that photo for years. Other photos of this aircraft, from different angles do not have the light areas.... So although this image looks like a two-tone scheme, it seems to be a fault in the photo and A8-116 is a green overall aircraft. 

Too bad! A two-tone scheme would have looked good on a model.

Cheers,
Malcolm

 Yes, I was thinking the same thing! Almost seems to follow a natural camouflage line in places.
