Exactly.  Since I've had problems with A/G's roundels in the past, and
since they're gone no one else is doing WW1 decals in 1/72nd, we're
stuck with matching what the manufacturers offer.

With A/G out of the picture, WW1 modeling has taken a step toward the
way it was years ago.  Sad, since no one is likely to "step up to the
plate" to take A/G's place.
