Iliad Design has recently released an aftermarket decal set covering T-33B/TV-2s in Naval Service.

This decal sheet covers a total of 4 aircrafts and you are provided with enough markings as to be able to model all of them and covering both US Marines, US Navy and Royal Canadian Navy service.

The airframes go from overall Light Gull Gray, to Natural Metal Finish, to even a very attractive NMF with Hi-Vis areas in Fluorescent Red-Orange

The decal sheet provides you with national markings, BuNo numbers, air intakes warning signs, plus rescue markings. You might need to provide your own stencils, but those can be easily sourced from the original decal sheet of your model.

The decal themselves are glossy and in register. The colors are vivid (good density) and while I have not tested them, my previous experience with Illiad Decals is that they are easy to work with and conform to the model surface really well.

This decal sheet is great. Excellent choice of finishes and enough decals to model all of the choices provided.

Highly recommended.

I would like to thank Iliad Design and IPMS/USA for the review sample.
