For Revell kit.

This next Starfighter Decals sheet for the Peashooter is also for the Revell 1/72 P-26. Again, these may fit the Pavla kit as well; at least the unique markings may--not sure about the tail stripes. Anyway, this sheet includes six markings options with enough insignia and tail stripes to do two aircraft. Most of these aircraft are from the 20th Pursuit Group at Barksdale, LA with one for Bolling Field added into the mix. All of them have blue fuselages with the initial option having one that seems a darker shade from the others.

You'll note that there are a variety of styles of fuselage and cowling markings on these planes. None of the specific Pursuit Squadrons are listed and I don't really have the knowledge to differentiate what is what just looking at them. However, they are all quite colorful and any of them would make into a most fetching model. The Bolling Field plane is the one on the lower left. A bonus set of unit badges is provided and I believe those are for the 77th Pursuit Squadron.

As with all their newer 1/72 sheets, this one is superbly printed by Cartograf in Italy. The sheet even includes the wing walk areas where needed. Standard setting solutions (Microsol) are recommended.

Thanks to for the review sample.
