This new sheet from Dutch Decal highlights several US- and English-built aircraft used by the Indonesians during the '50s. The included history talks about Opeartion "Haik," which centered on clandestine US operations in Indonesia in 1958.

Decals are provided for a very interesting set of aircraft: B-25 Mitchell, P-51D/K, C-47B, Piper L-4, Auster, Catalina, and B-26B Invader, with the standouts in my opinion being a couple of sharkmouthed Mustangs and a lovely Invader in not only a sharkmouth but also a sharktail.

Full color profiles show each scheme in detail with wing placements for the Mustangs and Mitchells. Also included are a few small pictures displaying a few of the aircraft in real life.

Dutch Decal has a great reputation for their decals and this looks like another excellent set. Now, maybe I need to get another Mustang for one of those sharkmouths.

I'd like to thank Dutch Decal for the sample and IPMS/USA for the opportunity to review it.
