For the any applicable aircraft

Starfighter Decals has released a new sheet for those modeling carriers in 1/350 scale. In particular, this sheet covers the USS Yorktown's air wing 5 during the Battle of Midway in June of 1942. 

The sheet has insignia in four sizes: 60", 54", 45", and 40". These will fit the planes of the time, including the Wildcat, Devastator, Avenger and Dauntless. There are quite a lot of each size so you should have more than enough to do the air wing. Aircraft of the time period carried little more than insignia and aircraft numbers and those numbers are also included.  In addition to the air wing markings, there are ship deck markings. Both solid and striped deck markings are provided as photos show both being used around this time. A set of instructions comes with it so you will be able to put the right size on the right airframe.

This set should be most welcome to those wanting to model the Yorktown during this time of the war.

Thanks to for the review sample.
