Decal Sheet Title Douglas C-47 Skytrain/Dakota
Types Featured C-47D

This is a recently released sheet, covering an unusual subject - C-47 Dakotas.  7 different airframes are covered on this sheet, the only one relating to the USAF being C-47D 43-49295 from the 49th TFW based at Spangdahlem AB, Germany, during August 1966.  The aircraft is overall aluminium with a white upper surface and 3 colored flash on the fin.

No stencils are provided with the sheet, but the whole sheet is nicely printed and in-register.  However, I'm not sure if the "USAF" markings should be in black or Insignia Blue - also, the stars and bars appear a little too light to me.
