No decals?



Reading the very detailed review it does say there is a decal sheet however the only down side to the review, no photo of said sheet or the paint schemes options.

Adam thank you for the great review, no sweat on the photos of the decals/paint schemes these things happen.

That was probably the best review I've ever read. Thanks for the great information, Adam. It sounds like a great kit, I'm going to get one.

Thanks for the heads up on the gun/dust cover issue. I made a spacer from sheet to fill the gap and support the dust cover with a hole to match. Seems to work. BTW: Do you know if they were still using spiderweb wheels during 68. I just like them better than starfish. OK, I'm a snob

Like the inclusion of Middle-Eastern finishing options, especially that of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard.
