I have a set of the Esci decals that are generic Austrian (i.e, no particular aircraft). The white triangle does have a slight blue tinge to them. Yous if you want them.

I may also have a set in the Marivox Saab 105 I seem to recall seeing something in there - just have to hunt round to find the box !

There's sixteen on the Esci strip - 4 different sizes and I was mistaken - no blue tint !

PM me your address and I'll get them in the post.

ESCI decals tend to disintegrate when merely threatened with water, so a good coat of varnish, Kleer or Microsale Decal Film is a very good move.

He speaks the truth.
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

I have found a few others (non Esci, Matchbox / Italeri) so I'll send those as well.

In addition, they rarely if ever conform to a curved surface and are prone to cracking.  The printing is dubious, the subjects sometimes spurious if not outright fictitious, and often come pre-yellowed.

The larger quantity are the Esci ones.
