|REVIEWER:||Scott Van Aken|
When I started to really get involved in model building, I liked to use letter/number/insignia sheets a lot to produce a model that wasn't part of the kit markings or an aftermarket sheet. One other accessory decal sheet I used a lot were stripes. Back then Scalemaster produced a number of stripes sheets that got a lot of use. However, they are no longer around and whatever decals are left from them are iffy to say the least.
Now, Fantasy Printshop fills a real need with this set of stripes decal sheets. Each sheet has a range of stripes from 7mm to 12mm. These are also produced in a variety of colors. While the sheets image is not in any order, here is what is available from FP 620 to FP-636: Black, White, Signal Red, Dull Red, Traffic Yellow, Golden Yellow, Aircraft Blue, Roundel Blue, Silver, Gold, Light Aircraft Grey, Medium Sea Grey, Dark Sea Grey, Extra Dark Sea Grey, Fluorescent Yellow, Fluorescent Orange and Fluorescent Red.
Well worth picking up several sheets as these are not only useful for airplane modelers (Invasion Stripes for instance), but car modelers, ship modelers, and even those who do trains will find these to be quite handy. I know that I'll be using some of these on some of my slot car repaints.
