Remember that the markings of a lot of RAF aircraft can be assembled
from stock roundels, codes, and serial numbers, all of which are
available from various manufacturers in various scales.
But what we really need is something like those Woody Vondracek B-17
decals for Bomber Command. A lot of Halifaxes and Lancasters (esp.
those on strength in Canadian and Australian squadrons) had some very
colourful nose art. I would be happy with just sheets of colourful
nose art decals, good instructions, and maybe serials, and leave the
rest to the modeller.
