This new decal sheet from Starfighter Decals includes markings for 4 aircraft in a total of 6 different paint schemes with the 94th and 17th Pursuit Squadrons.  

The 6 schemes include different colorful paint schemes of this little monoplane during the pre-war years.

  • P-26A 33-123 94th Pursuit Squadron Selfridge Field MI

  • P-26A 33-123 94th Pursuit Squadron Alternate paint scheme 1935-6

  • P-26A 94th Pursuit Squadron Selfridge Field MI

  • P-26A 17th Pursuit Squadron Selfridge Field MI

  • P-26A 17th Pursuit Squadron Nichols Field PH in 1941

  • P-26A 17th Pursuit Squadron Nichols Field PH Alternate paint scheme

The 2 pages of instructions are clear and include 1 color views of each aircraft plus generic views of the wings for painting guidance and marking placement.  The instruction sheet also gives paint and markings info for each aircraft.  The decals are beautifully printed on 1 decal sheet by Cartograf and are of a first rate quality.....you will not be disappointed.  Designed to fit the Revell P-26 Kit. Can be used on the Pavla Kit with small modifications.

Set contains markings for 2 aircraft from the 94th Pursuit Squadron and 3 from the 17th Pursuit Squadron. Only 2 sets of National Insignia and Tail Stripes present. Color placement and painting guide included.

This little fighter has a special spot for most modellers with an interest in this time period and this decal sheet gives you a very pleasing selection of paint schemes to choose from.

I would like to thank Starfighter Decals for providing me with this review sample.
