I have just come across the very sad news that Rowan Broadbent, best known for Pheon decals and generally raising the awareness of WWI aircraft modelling, died peacefully last Saturday morning. Rowan had been fighting against multiple cancers and other illnesses. I had the pleasure of meeting Rowan a few times and having lengthy chats, he was genial and easy to get on with, although I always suspected he might not suffer fools gladly! Pheon decals are testament to his skill as both a researcher and graphic artist, if you've never perused any of the Pheon decals it's well worthwhile, just to savour the quality of the product and immerse yourself in the detailed instructions and associated commentary. Rowan was dedicated to producing decals of the highest quality and accuracy and this is a great loss to the modelling community.

My condolences and sympathies to his widow, Sabine. Rowan surely fought the good fight. A great graphic artist and one that was passionate about WWI aviation, markings, etc. 
I have a magnum opus build planned, and their decals will feature prominently.
