Decal Review
This sheet offers markings for the following options
• B-26B-61-DL, S/No.44-34564, 'The 7th Chadwick', flown by Lt Col. R. Fortney, 13th BC, 3rd BG, Korea, spring 1953
• B-26C-30-DT with B-26B-15 nose, S/No.44-35345,  'Martha Ann', 3rd BG, Korea mid 1952
• B-26B-55-DL, S/No.44-34391, 95th BS, 17th BW, Korea, summer 1952
• B-26C-45-DT, S/No.44-35754, 8th BS, 3rd BG, Korea, July 1953

The instructions list all colours by name and Revell or Tamiya paint ranges and the decal sheet is beautifully printed, being nice and glossy with limited excess carrier film. The sheet also includes various airframe stencils and the makers logos for each propeller blade.

As ICM couldn't offer all the options they wanted in the kit, offering these four separately makes perfect sense and thus allows modellers to either go with the kit options, or those offered here. Highly recommended to all with their Invader in their build pile.

Our thanks to ICM (www.icm.com.ua) for the review sample. UK modellers can obtain this sheet from Hannants here
