FCM Decals has an interesting line of aftermarket decals from Brazil. The subjects covered in this line include many Brazilian civil and military aircraft subjects, WWI aircraft, and the occasional look at the aircraft of other nations as well. This latest release covers World War I, in particular four colorful Albatros D.III and D.V examples which include:
- Albatros D.V, Jasta 5, 1918, as flown by Fritz Rumey
- Albatros D.V, Jasta 32, 1918, as flown by Manfred Stimmel
- Albatros D.III(OEF), Flik 63J
- Albatros D.V, Jasta 18, 1918, as flown by Paul Strähle
The printing on this sheet is nicely done, and printed by Microscale. There are sufficient stencils on this sheet for one aircraft.
