I am currently putting the decals on and notice that the decal numbers on the instructions do not match the ones on the sheets .
They are showing 32 33 and so on and these appear to not be on the sheet, can this be a printing error or am I not looking properley

I'm working on the assumption that yours is the Academy boxing of the Accurate Minitures kit. If that is the case, I've got the SBD-2 version which has decals 32 & 33 in the upper left corner of the misc. data section at the bottom of the sheet on that version. Item 32 is the fuel drain (located just inbd. of the 100lb bombs) and item 33 is the fuel tank vent (under the fuselage on either side of the 500lb bomb). Since the -2 instruction sheet lists the Misc. maintenance stenciling as "common data" hopefully the number will be the same on the -5 version. If that doesn't work I guess your fall-back position is to break out the ole magnifying glass and check the fine print. Hope this helps and good luck.
