The owner of FCM decals in Brazil, Felipe C. Miranda is dedicated to bringing a quality product to model makers. One of his earliest attempts at WWI aviation subjects was the autumn leaf version of the Austro-Hungarian Sworl fabric in 1:48 scale.

Greetings Stephen,

I've used FCM decals in the past, with very good results – these sworls look very good from your pictures.

Do you know of any manufacturer that do them in 1:32 at all?

Best Regards

Mikael

Hello Mikael!

No one has them out yet. I am surprised that someone (Eduard) has not come out with a conversion to the Roden kit. But here is the word from FCM.

"Hello Stephen,

Thank you for the information. My WW1 decals are out of stock at this moment, only the hand painted sworls are available in 1/72 scale, now printed by Microscale and very superior in quality of the previous edition still printed here in Brazil. . . Some time in the near future I intend to return with WW1 series including 1/32 scale for Roden / Wingnuts kits.
