Decals of ages

As you can see, they look very different.

Lots and lots of markings are provided in modern kits. Including, in this case, all the dayglo markings for one of the variants.

The older sheet is a lot sparser, and the printing not nearly so crisp. As you can see the varnish has yellowed with age as well. I will check this out using some of the spares, often the decals themselves apply well and the carrier is not obvious but I need to be sure. Otherwise I may have to cheat a little and hunt out some decent aftermarket decals.

Tomorrow, the plastic
