This is a really super sheet from Fundekal. It covers T-38s from Project Mercury to the Space Shuttle; a total of at least 15 different options. The sheet not only covers standard planes, but also those use in the SR-71 program as well as early USAF types used by NASA. This includes one used by Jacqueline Cochrane to set one of her many world records.

All of the various NASA fin designs are included as well as nose markings and two different types of fuselage stripes. A section of spare is included. There are enough stripes to do three complete planes and if doing those prior to the stripe markings, you can do even more.

For kits one has three options, Wolfpack, Sword and Trumpeter. However, these are probably going to fit the Wolfpack and Sword kit better as the Trumpeter version is a bit overscale.

The decal sheet itself is superbly printed and show no errors in registration. It does not provide common markings so you will need to get those from the kit.

 What makes these decals somewhat different is that they do not come to you with instructions and require you to download them from their web site. They come in .pdf format and provide markings placement guides for a ton of different aircraft. The instructions are in full color and give upper and lower camo schemes where required. They also provide a full data placement guide for the different schemes. Notes are provided for each option and there are a lot of photographes as well. 

In all, a great sheet that really expands the number of options for this aircraft.  If you are a NASA enthusiast, you simply have to get this one before it sells out.

Thanks to Fundekals for the review sheet. You can find this set at Fundekals web site.
