WELL-KNOWN for its auto model accessories, Motobitz has now released two styles of UK number plate decals for use with key scales between 1/72 and 1/14 models.
The first type (MBD**REG/B) is instantly recognisable, being the current yellow/white-backed examples visible on current vehicles. It provides sufficient decals for at least four plates, along with numbers, letters and GB insignia, and is available in 1/72, 1/48, 1/43, 1/35, 1/32, 1/24 and 1/14 scales (prices range from £3 to £5). Those modellers with classic car kits should appreciate the second series (MBD**REG/S), which caters for the silver-framed licence plates fitted to pre-1975-registered machines. These are available in a similar range of scales (but not 1/32); however, silver borders are supplied just in the larger 1/24, 1/35 and 1/24 sets. See: www.motobitz.uk for details and ordering.
