The folks at Yellow-Wings Decals have been busy of late filling out the gaps in their products.  This time, Sheets 48-037 and 48-039 supply you with United States Marines titles. 

Again, these titles are meant for machines operated by the United States Marine Corps in the so-called pre-WWII "Golden Wings" era of U.S military aviation.  Both sheets have the same format and content U.S. MARINES - with 48-037 in black and 48-039 in white. 

For your money you get?  142 decals in total: 

        8 x 3 inch titles, 

        58 x 4 inch titles, 

        38 x 6 inch titles, and  

        38 x 9 inch titles.

Yellow-Wings Decals does not supply any accompanying support information material with the sheets but then again, it's not really required.  The header card does 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. 

A couple of well produced sheets from Yellow-Wings Decals. 

Recommended.

 

Thanks to Yellow Wings Decals for the review samples.
