To continue on with the stencil offerings from HobbyDecal, these two sheets cover the P-47 Thunderbolt and the FW-190A. For a look at the plusses and minuses of dry transfer sheets, I'll refer you to the first of these reviews. As with those other sheets, these are superbly printed. They also offer no instructions, but no worry as the kit you are building will have that info provided. These are simply replacements for kit decals. If you need instructions, simply go to HobbyDecal's web site, click on the 'Downloads' icon and then choose the set you have bought. This is an ingenious way of helping to save both the consumer and producer a bit of money as the producer doesn't have to pay to have them printed and the consumer can easily locate what is needed with just a click.

I can see that these have been doing fairly well as there are a few that are already sold out. If you want the best and are willing to try dry transfer decals, then these would be an excellent choice.

As a note, I should mention that I generally slightly degrade  decal scans to prevent copying. I should also point out that these markings are available in all the major scales except 1/72, but I think that may well be in the offing for later.

Thanks to HobbyDecal for the review samples
