Decal Sheet

Maintaining aircraft in hot and humid conditions often meant that they would sit around getting worked on. This gave the crews time to personalize their aircraft and since there weren’t any women around most of the time the aircraft sported some beautiful nose art. Foxbot has taken on some very sexy nose art.

The decals and instructions are packaged in a resealable baggie. The instructions are a single 8.5 x 11 high quality paper folded in half to help protect the decals from damage. The instructions are printed in full color with side views of SEVEN aircraft. Some from the SWP and some from Italy. The subject aircraft are B-25Cs and Ds. One of them has a painted over gun nose which is really interesting. There is a stencil instructions on the inside of the sheet but no stencils are included in this set. However, there is a sheet 48-039 that has these markings AND the stencils. Plan views are on the back as is the color callouts with FS number, Humbrol and Tamiya paint ranges.

The decals themselves are printed on 4.5 x 6 decal sheet. They are in perfect register and suitably thin. The skin tones of the nudes are beautifully executed. They are quite colorful as are the names.

So if you want to add a little sass to your Mitchell look no further, this sheet has it all. Another great sheet from Foxbot. This is just Part 1 there is another sheet from them that has even more Pin-ups on it for the B-25.

Highly recommended

Thanks to Foxbot and IPMS/USA for the review sample.
