Response to Accuracy in decals, who can we trust?

With half of the stuff on decal sheets, especially from World War II, there may be little or no direct or concrete information on markings and colors. Perhaps there is one grainy b/w photo of the tail of a plane and a decal maker has to extrapolate the whole camo scheme and markings layout from that one photo. Even well known planes like Gabreski's P-47 can be enigmatic with various written and photographic depictions not being conclusive or contradictory.

Some companies do make mistakes but a lot of time they (just like you) must make an interpretation.

Accurate and user-friendly may not be the same thing either. It depends what you want for your model. Something that is easy to use but, perhaps, less accurate, or a total POS decal that is a bear to use, but might be more accurate (at least in your eyes)
