For the any applicable aircraft

Starfighter Decals has released a new sheet for those modeling carriers in 1/700 scale and particularly those doing early war planes that used the red dot insignia and the rudder stripes. Even more specifically those planes on the USS Lexington. These markings were used until May 1942, after the battle of the Coral Sea when when the rudder stripes and red dot were painted out.

The set covers the  active carrier types of the time, the TBD Devastator, SBD Dauntless and the F4F Wildcat. Note that the superbly done instructions provide only the standard placement and size of the time. These also include the fuselage codes in either white or black, depending on which unit used what colors. I have duplicated a small section of the sheet and keep in mind that this is several times the size of the actual decals.

The set is superbly printed by Cartograf and will be perfect for those modeling this era of the war. As a bonus, placement markings for the F2A Buffalo are also given, with the unit codes being the same as used on the Wildcats. Thanks to for the review sample.
