I've just been informed that the new Academy 1/72 B-29 release contains a decal sheet with ALL the schemes from out 1/72 "Camouflaged B-29s" sheet! Now I can understand the duplication of one and maybe two schemes, but the whole sheet!? Come on, Academy... put a little of your own effort into research. If you had asked, I might have even given you the artwork, as our sheet was out of print. But now you've ticked me off! I was considering doing a reprint, but I guess there's no point now. Take a look... the Academy decal schemes vs. ours.

Oof. Clearly the only solution is to do a sheet of RAF post-war Washington B.1s. Clearly.

I dont suppose you ever design in any little "tell tales" do you? - might be worth checking their decal sheet to see if it matches yours exactly.....

Albeit with a different manufacturer but I have had a similar experience.

I know that there are limited schemes to replicate but when the rare Spitfire livery is then produced in kit form with a title that is near word for word as my own sheet it kind of leaves somewhat of a sour taste.
