Here's a look at the excellent instrument decals from Airscale, produced in 1:48 and 1:32 specifically for WWI era modelling.

Thank You Merlin for bringing theese to my attention – they'll certainly come in handy for some of my Roden kits that are a bit lacking in this department.

I too have seen these recently and can say that they are quite impressive. Now all we need is someone to produce PE bezels (Metal outer rims of the instrument gauge mounts on the dash panels). Thanks Rowan for posting these.

Here is a photo of the Airscale instruments I mounted onto a mock instrument panel, the decals are so easy to use and adhere exremely well. I also fitted Aeroclub vintage bezels which are also a great product, the two brilliant products compliment each other and will make a really good looking instrument panel.

I have just received news from Peter at Airscale that he and John at Aeroclub are joining forces, Peter will be retailing Johns bezels soon. This is great news as both Peter and John produce a brilliant product and when used together are a perfect match, creating the ideal WW1 instrument panel is now available to all.
