Japanese Hinomaru (Meatball) Insignia

Decal Set #: JP-100 Preview by Al Magnus - one72guy(at)hotmail(dot)com

This set is marketed for 1/285 - 1/600 & 1/144 aircraft.

There are two small sheets in a package, each being approximately 89mm long by 47mm wide. Each sheet is identical containing the same Japanese Hinomaru insignia sans white outline in various sizes.

There is also one red stripe approx. 6mm long and
two red stripes approx. 12mm long. Each is about 1mm wide.

The printing appears to be excellent with nice opaque looking inks. Each image is printed on a separate piece of very thin clear transfer material as opposed to being printed on a continuous clear sheet. I'm not sure to what extent the Japanese Army marked their vehicles with Hinomaru but there may be some use for these as AFV markings.

Thanks to Dave Winfree of Decal Details for this review sample.
