Great overall review Tim.
Just receiving my set last Monday I will say hands down this is a must to have set.

Lows: Will the decals for the instrument conform to the raised detail?



Probably not that well, but with some sanding they値l look/work great. I知 working on two Super Hornets now and will be using this sheet.

Happy Modeling,
Joe

They will in fact conform perfectly...this is the way they were designed. If you sand off the raised detail, you'll lose the 3D effect desired.

Thanks Scott, and again great decals. I had a feeling they would fit into the instrument panels but I was more thinking about the side wall panels that they needed sanding.

Happy Modeling,
Joe
