    This is my first 1:48 for my true collection... the actual fist 1/48 ME 109 was built quickly for the kids room...

    HELP! PLEASE!
    I'm at the stage of applying the decades on the Tamiya Spitfire 1/48............

    Question: The decals come with a separate WHITE roundel...... do I have to use these or I can just use the decals without placing the white backing?????

    I would imagine that the final result will be a thick decal if the white backing is used....... And what are the purpose anyway?

    Noel, the white discs act as an undercoat, especially over camouflage and you get a more accurate colour of the roundel.
