Hi have acquired a MKXVI spit in 1:32 but not the Tamiya kit. And I want to create the Murray Lind stead “Rongatea”.

Can’t find the decals anywhere even my go to Oldmodels decals or Ventura don’t have them

Does anybody know of a place that carries them? Can anybody print any for me or do you have the spare Tamiya decals ?? Happy to pay for time effort postage etc.


Most pilots last words are "Watch this"

You will want the Lifelike Decals Supermarine Spitfire Mk.XVIe Part 2


Thou there are some issues with the decal sheet. The Rongotea outline is in Yellow, it should be black. Tamiya sheet provides it with a black outline. The serial number is incorrect and I question the colour of the spinner. I believe it should be black with white as it aligns with the issue to paint spinners from Sky to Black. Also taking to Murray's son Alan, he mentioned that his father never mentioned that the spinner was red.

Hope that helps, I've got more covered in the article that I wrote a few years back on this Spitfire
