Scale 1/72
Manufacturer Cutting Edge
ID CED72109
Title Bell X-1
Types Featured X-1

This sheet from Cutting Edge covers all of the first generation X-1s and allows any scheme from any flight to be modelled.  It provides markings for all 3 X-1s (46-6062, 46-603 & 46-6064) and all of the NACA badges and shields, together with various versions of the "Glamorous Glennis" nose art.

The sheet is well printed with everything in register, the decal film itself is thin and there is very little overlap of film.

The instructions are printed in color and comprise left and right views (where needed)  together with upper surface diagrams, color details and additional references.

My only quibble is that there is not very much research provided as to the different flights themselves...
