1-200 RAF Type A1 fuselage roundels, 2 different size sheets
Generic sheet of 1-200 scale RAF Type A1 fuselage roundels.
The Type A-1 roundel is essentially a Type A with an additional thick outer ring of bright yellow to allow the roundel to be more visible against a darkly camouflaged wing or fuselage. The three interior rings of this roundel maintain the same ratio of thickness as the Type A roundel, giving the proportions a diameter ratio. This roundel was mandated for use on all camouflaged surfaces from 1937 until March 1939 and then just on fuselage sides from 1940 to 1942, until even these were superseded by the Type C-1 in July 1942. It is very rare to find a photograph of a Type A-1 roundel used on the top side of wings, but very common to see it on the fuselages of aircraft during the first half of the war.
Decals have been test fitted to Plane Printer - Roman Troyan's - 3d print STLs as well as Armaments in Miniature resin cast planes.
