Acreation is one of several aftermarket companies that offers Pan Am decals for the new Moebius kit of the Orion III Space Clipper.

The small sheet is well printed and in register.  It offers the Pan Am Globes, Pan American titles for the fuselage, and Pan Am titles for the wings.  These last are not seen on the model used in the film but I have seen builds with them in the past.  Also included are several small markings including "No Step" markings and some that are included in the kit decals, if you don't use them, to depict the panel lines.

The sheet has a continuous carrier film so make sure you cut the images close, especially the globes.

The only thing missing from this set are some instructions to tell you where to place the smaller markings.  I even went to their website where they have a space for Instruction Guides, but they are listed as Coming Soon so no help for me.

Overall, I was happy with how the decals I used worked.  Now I have a decently marked replica of the kit on my shelves.

Thanks to my wallet for the review sample.
