Hobbydecal has been on a roll as of late and has sent new markings for the P-38 in 1/48 and 1/32. These sheets are dry transfers just like all their products and have a very complete stencil suite. It includes a large selection of serial numbers in yellow for the tail of camouflaged aircraft, a very nice and thoughtful addition. Included is a most comprehensive placement guide showing exactly where all the appropriate markings should go. The folks at HobbyDecal do a great deal of research to ensure the proper placement of these markings so you can be sure that what is provided is correct. The only difference between the 1/48 and 1/32 sheets are size. Shown is the 1/32 sheet.

For more information on the pros and cons of dry transfers, please visit this review. I should mention that overall, dry transfer decals will provide a superior result as there is no need to clear coat the model and they are quite thin.

Thanks to HobbyDecal for the review samples
