Yellow Wing Decals 1/32 SBD-1/2/3 Dauntless Complete Stencils Decal First Look
|Date of Review||January 2007||Manufacturer||Yellow Wing Decals|
|Subject||SBD-1/2/3 Dauntless Complete Stencils||Scale||1/32|
|Set Number||32009||Pros||Markings for three aircraft|
Yellow Wing Decals has released a very nice maintenance stencil set for Trumpeter's 1/32 SBD-1/2 and SBD-3 kits. There are three complete sets of stencils - one for the SBD-1, one for the SBD-2, and one for the SBD-3. The differences between three are subtle, but clearly well-researched.
The instructions that are included in this set provide proper placement of the stencils on the airframe. Some of the stencils don't apply to every version of the aircraft and you'll find a blank space where the that decal would be on the sheet for another version. It makes stencil placement easy.
The instructions also walk you through the proper colors of certain detail like the inside of the dive flaps for the three versions as well. Nicely done!
Yellow Wing Decals can be purchased directly from their website at www.yellow-wingsdecals.com.
My sincere thanks to Yellow Wing Decals for this review sample!
