This set is presented on one decal sheet which is printed by Cartograph. The set provides six distinctive color schemes from the USAF and USN service. This set provides two sets of stencils and walkways as well as the generic markings unique to specific camouflage and the individual aircraft subject markings. The decals are all single-layer - none of them require you to stack one decal atop another to recreate complex art as with some other decal manufacturers.

My sincere thanks to Caracal Models for this review sample!
