Each set of stripes is printed in a single color but they have a wide variety of colors available to support your various projects. These include:

  • FP600 Black
  • FP601 White
  • FP602 Signal Red
  • FP603 Golden Yellow
  • FP604 Aircraft Blue
  • FP605 Roundel Blue
  • FP606 Fluorescent Orange
  • FP608 Metallic Silver Stripes
  • FP609 Metallic Gold Stripes
  • FP610 Light Aircraft Grey
  • FP611 Medium Sea Grey
  • FP612 Dark Sea Grey
  • FP613 Extra Dark Sea Grey
  • FP614 Fluorescent Yellow
  • FP615 Fluorescent Red
  • FP616 Traffic Yellow

I could have saved some time masking and painting the silver band around the cowling of my I-16 using the Metallic Silver stripes! Whether you want an easy way to replicate identification bands, invasion stripes, or to replicate special schemes on your subject, these stripes are an inexpensive and easy way to get the job done!

My sincere thanks to Fantasy Printshop Decals for these review samples!
