For Dragon kits.

This latest new sheet from Starfighter Decals is one that I think all 1/700 carrier fans will find useful. There are two sheets in this set and they consist of all the deck markings that one would need to complete a post WWII Essex class carrier. Both the straight deck and angle deck markings are provided for a variety of ships. One simply matches the various deck markings and ship numbers from what one finds in photos of the ship in question.

In addition to the deck markings, there are some ship-specific island markings provided. The comprehensive instruction sheet shows the general and specific placement information as well as providing painting information. The decals themselves are superbly printed by Cartograf in Italy, so you know these are the best quality around. Your next post war 1/700 carrier build deserves the best decals and these are it.

Thanks to for the review sample.
