This decal set provides markings for three aircraft:

  • TBD-1, 0319, VT-6, 6-T-16, USS Enterprise, 1940
  • TBD-1, 0324, VT-6, 6-T-1, USS Enterprise, 1940

This sheet provides sufficient markings for two of the three aircraft. You can purchase these decals directly from Starfighter Decals on their website.
