This is Stormo Magazine's third 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?
