Eduard continue to build on the success of their fantastic Spitfire Mk. IX with a host of aftermarket releases, including this highly useful set of stencil markings for the aircraft.
Originally included with the kit itself, the decals set is really comprehensive with only 70 individual items - sometimes offering alternative styles depending on whether you're building an "early" or "late" Mk. IX.
The printing is immaculate, with even the smallest text quite legible under a magnifier. The items are thin and glossy and (having used the original sheet supplied with the kit) I can vouch for the fact that they snuggle down beautifully with no tendency to silver. No particular decal solutions are recommended, but I used Super Sol and Set with excellent results.
Whether you're looking for Spitfire stencils to go with Eduard's own oversprues, or simply need a top quality set to go with a kit from another manufacturer, Eduard's decals are highly recommended.
Please remember, when contacting retailers or manufacturers, to mention that you saw their products highlighted here - on AEROSCALE.
Highs: Excellent quality decals with the smallest text clearly legible.Lows: None that I've found.Verdict: Eduard's Spitfire Mk.IX stencils are comprehensive and apply beautifully.
