First Look

Starfighter Decals has released this nice decal set for any of the Revell 1/540 USS Midway-class straight-deck kits. These markings are for the Midway-class before they received their angle decks.

Midway Class Decals

This decal set provides markings for the following marking configurations:

  • USS Midway CVB 41, late 1940s/early 1950s
  • USS Franklin D. Roosevelt CVB 42, late 1940s/early 1950s
  • USS Coral Sea CVB 43, late 1940s/early 1950s

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!
