Art Scale Kit

Supermarine Spitfire Mk. IX

Several Sheets



The last but not the least!

Today, we get to the end of decal week, offer by Art Scale Model.

Today, I´m going to review 2 (two) decal sheet of the Spitfire Mk. IX in 1:48 and 3 (three) stencil decal sheet  from ASK.


All sets came in a ziplog bag, small A5 size sheet with profiles colors instructions steps how to apply ASK decals.


So let’s looks to the option schemes that all decal sheets offer.


Also here, in the applying instructions, in all sheets (except the stencils decal sheet), theres`a real photo of one of the airplanes that are represented on the decal sheets. I really love that "bonus"

The set does have the beautiful shark mouth but only the outline in black and the shark teeth. So the inside mouth, in red must be painted by the modeler.

The stencils are very thin, with small decal film on the edge to prevent to maximum silvering and not blurry, being quite comprehensive.

In 1:24 and 1:32 you get one set for one Spitfire. In1:48 the decals sheet give the modeler enough stencils for two aircrafts.










Analyzing the decal sheets, the color registration is great and a very good definition of the details. The decals have a thin film, in fact looking very thin and delicate.

There is no indication where are they printed so I assume that will be in ASK house. The printing quality is quite good, as they are sharp, with outline very well defined. The color look quite good and spot on.


I tried already and it work great, with good adhesion to the plane surface without wrinkling or bubbling. No adverse reaction to Micro set or Micro Sol. You do have to work then with care and patience as they are very delicate and therefore, fragile.


The instructions are the general ones that are applicable to all decals, it is always important to remember the general principles of decal application. In this case, there is no specific rule for applying these decals.


The profiles draws contains lots of information, with side view (both side) and top view with precise decal indication.



This week was brought to you by Art Scale Kit. In fact, looking for ASK decal catalogue, we could have several weeks with a new every day!

Is a very good product, not expensive and that will give your model a different look on your collection and to the table contest or the club weekly reunion.

The location indication of the decals is quite good and very perceptible.

The decals as already said, have a very good colour registration, very thin, with minimum decal film, and they work quite nice!

 My thanks to Art Scale Decals for producing these fantastic decals and the possibility of reviewed them.
