Eduard have released a very useful set of servicing stencils for the Spitfire Mk.IX. First included with their recent quarterscale kit, the decals are now available separately in their own right.

Actually they were available separately since the first release of the kits. There are a few errors, some too trivial to bother about.

No 27 - Trestle Here - check other references for correct orientation. Cannot find any examples where they are a mirror image on each side of the roundel.

No 39 - should read 'Engine Starter Plug' but is actually stencil for inside of the door. No 39 to 42 inclusive are stencils for inside of the door but are not shown on the diagrams. Cannot find any stencil of the sheet for 'Engine Starter Plug'.
