Superscale International is well-known for their aftermarket decals. This release is a utility sheet providing standard USAAF/USN/USMC national markings in a variety of sizes. These include (full-scale sizes): 25", 30", 35", 36", 45", 50", and 60".
The set indicates that these are USAAF, but with the exception of the all-dark-blue Navy schemes, these markings will apply to USN and USMC subjects as well. Check your references as the technical orders for each aircraft type indicate the size and placement for these markings.
Sets like these are handy to have around to replace a damaged kit decal or to replace those national markings in the box that simply don't look right. Stash several sets away!
My sincere thanks to Squadron Mail Order for this review sample!
