The text notes that the phrase 'Los Angeles City Limits' was hand-written and the release notes indicate that a correction will be available from Lifelike Decals at the end of September. If you acquire this set and want that correction, watch for an announcement and instructions from their website. This set comes complete with a full set of national markings, distinctive unit markings, and basic airframe stenciling. You can purchase these decals directly from Lifelike Decals. My sincere thanks to Lifelike Decals for this review sample!
