Decal set for
Japanese Navy Aircraft used by Training Units
Decals has brought to us in the last 6+ years many superb decal
sheets covering very interesting subjects which no one has "tackled"
before. Their new decal sheet is a great example of such a subject.
Japanese Aircraft of Training

the Training Units - this time IJN aircraft. The first sheet released under
product number RD 72023 Japanese Aircraft of Training Units - Army
aircraft offered 9 options is completely sold out now.
This sheet offers 8 options plus a
bonus of 2 more.

This sheet is truly packed with decals and even the smallest ones (like serial number templates and stencils) are printed very well. National insignias are included and Hinomarus with white outlines are done seperately to avoid errors during printing (smart move). This way it will be only up to you to get it right. The sheet was printed by Aviprint.
The instruction sheet is printed on great quality paper with English text. All the decal placement are covered well, recommended colors (the Gunze Mr. Color Range) are listed as well as references used.
This sheet is perfect for anyone planning to build the great new kits of K5Y1/2 Willow from Valom as well as K3M3 Pine from AZ Models. I think we all are familiar with Hasegawa's A6M2 Zeros in 1/72nd scale.
