"...profiles six more aircraft used by the Finnish Air Force during WWII and sets of decals produced in 1:48 and 1:72 to go with each one. The Finnish Air Force was unusual in so fart as their aircraft came from many different sources. We have six good examples here with two Hawker Hurricanes, a Curtis Hawk and three Messerschmitt Bf109s. As well as decals provided for the six aircraft, there are additional serial numbers for those wishing to build alternatives... those wishing to build any of the above will find all you need by way of references and markings for your subjects in this excellent package."
