Decal Review Iliad Design 1/48 P-38J Lightning

This is a new decal sheet from Iliad Design.

This sheet from Iliad Design gives you 5 different decal P-38J options.

These decals are not designed to work with any specific kits but the main players seem to be the Academy kits, which were also reboxed by Eduard, and Hasegawa. You will see some other boxings out there but they mostly seem to date back to the Monogram kits of the 60s.

Inside the bag:
Inside the bag we have:

The front of the instructions shows side views of all 5 aircraft. The reverse of the sheet gives top views of the aircraft.

There’s lots of extra information on the sheet to help you get your painting correct. Each design has notes specific to it that will help get things perfect.


Another very nice decal sheet from Iliad Design with excellent instructions and an interesting selection of themes.

The sheet is available from Iliad Design in Canada and other dealers.
