Sorry to be the bearer of sad news, but Richard (Dick) L. Ward passed away early on Sunday morning (12th November) following a short illness.

Dick will be well-known to military aircraft modellers, as he was the name behind ModelDecal decals and published many photos and modelling-reference books, his favourite types being the Phantom, Lightning and Jaguar.

I first met Dick in 1965 when he had the huge 'History of Air Power' model collection on display at RNAS Yeovilton, together with Alan Hall and Dave Cook and have kept in touch ever since.

RIP my friend.

ModelDecal set new standards in finishing a model properly; their reference and detail instructions let alone the exquisite decal sheets were works of art. Sad news indeed.

Sad news indeed.
His decals were a true inspiration to one particular teenager growing up in the 70s.
