This is Stormo Magazine's second aces sheet and like the earlier one, provides markings for six different aircraft.  The sheet includes only the unique markings and provides insignia only where the kit's markings are inaccurate. Any data markings and additional insignia will need to come from the kit. The sheet includes the tail cross for all of the aircraft as well as propeller markings

So what is on the sheet?

First is a CR-42 flown by Sottotenente Franco Bisleri with 19 kills from the summer of 1940.

Next  is Tenente Luigi Torchio's Fiat CR.42CN as flown in February of 1943

A Macchi C.200 of Sottotenente Giuseppe Biron as flown in the Soviet Union during early 1942 is the next subject.

Also in a Macchi C.200 is Maggiore Ettora Foschini's plane, also from the Soviet Union during mid 1942, though keeping the white fuselage band.

Capitano Furio Doglio's Fiat G.50 is the next aircraft, this time from August of 1940.

Finally, an Re.2001 as flown by Capitano Salvatore Teja from June 1942.

Instructions are printed in full color with detailed information on the painting of each aircraft provided as well as any detail notes. A listing of appropriate kits is also provided for each type as are references for the markings themselves. The decals themselves are superbly printed by Cartograf and quite thin, making for a logical choice for your next project.
