I have checked my 'Clerget Camel' kit, which has Brown, Barker and two unnamed schemes

1685 seems to be a much earlier boxing:

Hang on - looking at the Scalemates timeline, is this the 'starving cow' ribbed model that became the Academy camel?

I had one of those, I may still have the decals

I am not sure Richard. I am attaching a link to E Bay. No relation to seller, just posting for reference.

PS: I know it is not the very first release as I have that one. Different Markings and packaging.

Thanks Guys. I really don't need the whole Enchilada! Actually a good photo copy of the decal sheet would work. If I don't solve this by finding a set of the decals I guess My Camel will be finished to the point of needing the final couple of decals to be finished  ::)

I'm still not clear which kit this is - is it the 'Academy' one with horrible wings, or the much nicer 'Hobbycraft' one which has Clerget and LeRhone variants

If it is the latter - buy the kit and take the decals. I'll take the rest off your hands

Well, I wish I was sure which Mold this one is. I do see a decided difference in How the Decals Look  8) Here is another option. Revelle of Germany issued the Eduard kit in The Markings I need although it is 1/48th. I could use those decals as a basis to make My own. So I am also in for the decals from that kit.

email floating your way!

As a side note...
You will need to cap those bars at the right angle with tamiya tape. I just allowed a little extra in length to make sure.

Just for the record I am still looking for this decal sheet. Buy or Trade. I just need it for the Dragon Markings thanks to Bobs Masks!

Is there an illustration of the dragon anywhere? A photo of the aeroplane for instance

RAGIII,
