One of the latest releases from Xtradecal, this sheet provides a selection of US 'Stars'n'Bars'. The following sizes are included:-

  • 15"
  • 20"
  • 25"
  • 30"
  • 32"
  • 35"
  • 40"
  • 45"
  • 50"
  • 55"
  • 60"
  • 65"
  • 70"

These are provided on two separate sheets and are in perfect register - Xtracolor has also managed to get the dark blue of the Insignia Blue FS15044 correct.

Instructions comprise a single side of A4 color copy, showing typical side, upper and lower views, together with a table showing typical sizes for more common aircraft.

The red bars are provided separately and this is the only let-down on the sheet. Whilst Xtracolor note that it enables the modeller to build pre-January 1947 aircraft, it means that every insignia contains 3 separate decals which many modellers will find too complex.
