The Decals come in 1:72,1:48, 1:32, 1:24 and a whopping 1:18 scale. Colors are crisp and I was blown away at the detail when I scanned the sets and “blew them up” to see how detailed the detail was in actuality.
I had a couple of semi completed “experimental” P-47s. I applied some of the Fündekal logos to fill the deficiencies on these two to get a feel for how they look. I was very pleased with the results. The "experimentals" are a Revell 1:32 OOB P-47D w/ Smithsonian Decals and a 1:48 Academy B-top Jug with the Eileen Decals. Here they are “before” the application of the Fündekal badges:
Not bad, huh? IMO that small detail makes the engines pop!! (The decals not the planes- they are shoddy but served my purpose).
I had a few problems with the quarter-scale decal, but with some micro sol and micro set, the problem was solved. These are small decals but I think they really make a huge difference with the R-2800! I'm glad I got the set- They are worth the $9.00USD considering the 176 badges you get. I definitely recommend dealing with Fündekal Guys their work is superior- and shipping was fast and very inexpensive IMO. For a modest price you get 40-1:72, 60-1:48, 40-1:32, 20-1:24 and 16-1:18 decals. I highly recommend anything Fündekals has to offer.

*Note: Before you read this review, I have only began offering my experience backed opinion on items in the modelling arena. I will not try to impress you with historic or technical knowledge of the subject matter (unless I believe it's pertinent to the review). In other words: I will not try to dazzle you nor insult your research experience and ability with my limited knowledge.
Since I returned to modelling in 2007 (I had to abandon the hobby in 1992), I have slowly acclimated into the concept of utilizing after-market items as a regular part of my modelling even if it's just getting some decals to top off a gorgeous styrene or resin scale kit. Since I am no academic Historian I am not going to pretend to be one and present some background information on minutia cut and pasted from other articles.
