Caracal Decals has re-released itís Hustler B-58 decal sheets in 1/48 scale
I reckon there are around nineteen marking options in this release. Note the illustrations are for eight of the aircraft included with this release.

"The B-58 is more than the first Mach 2-capable operational supersonic bomber: with its sleek lines, it is a timeless aviation classic. Our latest decal sheet covers the history of B-58 operations at a level of detail and coverage that this magnificent aircraft deserves.

The options on this 4-page decal set span the entire career of the B-58, starting from the early evaluation schemes; all the way to both operational and test aircraft from all operator units, and the mythical "Project Bullseye" aircraft".
