The folks at Yellow-Wings Decals have been busy of late filling out the gaps in their products.  Sheets 48-036 and 48-038 supply you with United States Navy Titles that are seen on all of the U.S. navy's aircraft even to this present day. 

These titles however are meant for machines of the "Golden Wings" era of U.S. Naval Aviation.  Both sheets have the same format and content U.S. NAVY - with 48-036 in black and 48-038 in white. 

So what do you get?  154 decals in total: 

  • 10 x 3 inch titles,
  • 64 x 4 inch titles,
  • 44 x 6 inch titles, and
  • 36 x 9 inch titles.

Unusual for Yellow-Wings Decals, the sheets do not come with any accompanying support material but then again, it's not really required for these sheets.  The header card however does supply instructions for applying the decals. 

The decals themselves have been printed by Microscale, the state of the art decal manufacturer.  They are thin and have an absolute minimum of film surrounding each title.

The decal sheet and its accompanying stiff cardboard header come packed in a clear plastic zip-loc bag.

Yellow-Wings Decals continue to supply first class decals to what is a niche market.  More power to them! 

Recommended.

 

Thanks to Yellow Wings Decals for the review samples.
