Insignia sheets are always quite handy to have nearby. Sometimes because you have goofed one, or because the kit supplied ones are not that good, or even because none were supplied with the kit. There are places in the world where you cannot buy anything with a swastika on it or included inside.

This sheet from Kopro includes ones that would most likely be seen on fighter sized aircraft. This 1/48 sheet contains 250, 300, 350, 400, and 480 mm sizes. They are offered in a variety of styles including solid black, solid white, black outline, white outline and black with a white border. There is a conversion chart on the back of the info card that provides dimensions in both inches and millimeters. While it would have been nice to have a chart stating which aircraft normally carried which size, apparently it was felt that there were so many variations as to make such a chart less than useful. Still, I would have liked to have seen one.

The decals themselves are superbly printed and should be quite useful.
