If you want to dress up HobbyBoss' excellent 1/32 P-61, Superscale decals give you three options for P-61B's based on Iwo Jima from the 548th NFS. Inside the package, you get a page of full color instructions and a nicely done decal sheet printed by Cartograf.

The instruction sheet contains paint and marking schemes for three planes all of which are black with red spinners and cowlings which match the red plane numbers. The planes are:

  • "Lady in the Dark", P-61B-1-NO, S/N 42-39408
  • "Midnight Madness", P-61B-1-NO, S/N 42-39404
  • "Cooper's Snooper", P-61B-2-NO, S/N 42-39454

There are placement guides for the excellent nose art and unit markings and also the national insignia. The nose art in two cases are very well done pin-up girls.

The decals are beautiful and perfectly in register and also include propeller markings, plane data and pilot data. Cartograf makes excellent decals and I am sure these will apply very well.

An excellent set of markings that give much needed variation to the HobbyBoss kit. Highly recommended. My thanks to Squadron Products and IPMS/USA for the chance to review these decals.
