The Tamiya F-84G, and now the Pro-Modeler F-84G, being the current definitive 1/48th scale kits of the subject, are worthy subjects of aftermarket decals. Experts Choice has released (at the time of this writting) three decal sheets for these kits. This is their second F-84 sheet.

This Experts Choice decal set is priced at $11.95 for two sheets, compared to $6.95 for the AeroMaster sets which include two sheets. A little more pricey perhaps, but still a solid 10, especially if they do fit the Pro-Modeler kit.
