This large (ca. 8″ x 12″) sheet contains Canadian content aircraft markings in 1/48 and 1/72; and vehicle markings in 1/35 and 1/48. The aircraft include a WW I “Victory Bond” drive Curtiss JN-4; a Hurricane flown by John Kent (aka Johnny Kentowski); a Spitfire XVI in some interesting late-war markings as flown by Stan Turner; a DH Vampire of 402 (City of Winnipeg) Squadron; and a Sabre from 441 Squadron with special ‘rat’ markings! The vehicle decals include a Centurion, two Shermans, and a colourful Jeep!

All IPMS Canada members current at the time of mailing will receive these decals.
