+1 Aviattic, they are by far superior to anything else on the market currently! You just have to decide if you want transparent ot the ones on white paper. The transparent gives you teh possibility to play with the underlaying colour and preshade the ribs etc. but they are a bit tricky and you may make them a bitdark very easy. The :white paper" version is not transparent so you can add efects only on top of them, which is no problem at all. Both lay down great and easily. I can only highly reccomend them!

Absolutely Aviattic, they add so much to your model. But they are a bit different to apply on a surface. They are a bit like a plastic foil, Setting soloution doesn't work well on them. Best is a hair drier and patience. just follow their instructions, they supply you when you buy them.

Well, I have to COMPLETELY AGREE that Aviattic is the absolute best there is. Depending on the Aircraft type there are multiple choices as to 4 or 5 color, new or faded, blue, pink, loaenge,  or CDL rib tapes, and finally "Cookie Cutter" Versions. Research your chosen aircraft and look closely at the Aviattic store and Have Fun! As has been mentioned, FOLLOW DIRECTIONS  8)

So many said it before, I can only agree: Nothing beats AVIATTIC!

Another question:
How many aircraft will the lozenge decals do?

In 1/32 scale, you get 1 aircraft per sheet. 1/48 is 2 I think & 4 in 1/72.
