Starfighter Decals has released this nice decal set for any of the Revell 1/540 USS Essex-class angle-deck kits.
This decal set provides markings for the following marking configurations:
- USS Hornet CVS 12, 1968-71
- USS Wasp CVS 18, 1960s
- USS Randolph CVS 15, 1960s
- USS Bennington CVS 20, 1964-70
- USS Essex CVS-9
- USS Yorktown CVS 10, 1959-61
This is a really nice update for this kit and the instructions point out other aftermarket resources which can help to further detail and tailor your subject.
You can purchase these decals directly from Starfighter Decals on their website.
My sincere thanks to Starfighter Decals for this review sample!
