Default Aircraft Carrier names decal sheet

Guys,
Pls help my fading memory. Was there ever a 1/72nd scale decal sheet with aircraft carrier names? Iím struggling to recall a sheet that had CV & CVN names in both gray & black lettering: maybe Microscale/SSI or Modeldecal? My Google-foo in this endeavor is laughable....



Thanks for any help

I don't recall a sheet that had carrier names but MicroScale did do a sheet of air station names, it was sheet 72-478, could that be the sheet you are thinking of?

You know, this would be pretty useful. A generic sheet with carriers names, air stations, NAVY/MARINES, and numbers of varying sizes would be pretty cool. I'd be down for 2 or 3. Geoff, Brian, Dave? You guys listening?

CAM did a couple of sheets that I know of. Mostly newer carriers, I think maybe Kitty Hawk was the oldest? But itís got black and gray...

I have a couple cut up sheets, but without the sheet number, so I canít help you there...

the problem is, there is no one standard stencil size for carrier names... especially after the 1980s. Lots of fonts and sizes, differing from squadron to squadron in the airwing.
