Originally published on:
AeroScale

Iliad Design have reprinted one of their earliest sets of 1:48 decals which has been unavailable for some time, redesigning the sheet to squeeze in extra markings.

The colour schemes now offered are:
1. Shenyang J-6 "4126" of 26 Sqn., Pakistan Air Force
2. Shenyang J-6 of the Egyptian Air Force, 1983
3. Shenyang J-6 "10434" of the Pakistan Air Force, bearing both Pakistani and Chinese markings for its retirement ceremony
4. MiG-19S "47" of the Moscow Military District aerobatic display team in the late 1950s and early Ď60s
5. Shenyang J-6 "4-49" of the Albanian Air Force
6. Shenyang J-6 "6066", 925th Fighter Regiment, Vietnamese Peoplesí Air Force, 1972
7. Shenyang J-6 "20708" of the Chinese PLAAF

The decals are beautiful quality, being very thin and glossy, with precise registration and minimal excess carrier film around most items. Where carrier film is used to group items such as numbers together, it is crystal clear and so thin it should disappear with correct application.

Sheet #48005 is available now from hobby shops, or direct from Iliad Design - Price: $12.00

Conclusion
Iliad Designís decision to reprint their MiG-19/Shenyang J-6 markings should be warmly welcomed by anyone building this classic Cold War fighter in 1:48 - all the more so now that the sheet includes additional colour schemes.

Please remember, when contacting retailers or manufacturers, to mention that you saw their products highlighted here - on AEROSCALE
SUMMARY
Highs: Beautiful quality decals. Clear instructions with full-colour illustrations.
Lows: None noted.
Verdict: There are some really attractive schemes included here, so this reissued set should once again prove very popular.

I've been modelling for about 40 years, on and off. While I'm happy to build anything, my interests lie primarily in 1/48 scale aircraft. I mostly concentrate on WW2 subjects, although I'm also interested in WW1, Golden Age aviation and the early Jet Age - and have even been known to build the occas...
