Chics Part 1 decal sheet
Product # PYND72001 for
This new decal
sheet from Cutting Edge
Modelworks includes markings for two different 1/72 B-24 Liberators.
The first aircraft is a B-24J-120-CO
Liberator serial number 42-109951with the 11th BG/98th BS called "Madame
Pele". This aircraft was reportedly
paid for by children in Hawaii and features a naked Hawaiian Goddess Pele
emerging from a volcano. I'm sure the kids that paid for this B-24
were not consulted about the very sexy noseart painted on this
bomber. The paint scheme
for this aircraft is overall
Olive Drab with what appears to be neutral grey on the underside. The
deicer boots were badly worn on this aircraft. The nose art appears on the
right side of the nose and is
a beautiful nude red head emerging from an activer Volcano with orange text
reading "Madame Pele".
artwork for this aircraft has a white decal to go underneath the noseart decal.
second plane is B-24H-10-DT Liberator serial number
42-28746 with the 466th BG/785th BS called "Jamaica ?".
paint scheme for this aircraft is overall Olive Drab with what appears to be
neutral grey on the underside. The deicer boots are not on the wings and
are black on the tails. The nose art appears on the right side of the nose
as a beautiful brunette which was a date of one of the members of the crew.
On the left side is nose art of a topless brunette in panties in the midst of
just taking off her red skirt with white text beside the nose art that reads
The artwork for both sides of this aircraft have white decals to go underneath
the noseart decal.
|The noseart decals are delicate and two are included
for each plane in case
you mess up the first ones. Exacting
instructions are included on how to prepare and install these decals…..read
these instructions carefully to avoid disaster. Apparently these noseart decals are very thin and need
special care, but once installed they will look very accurate and realistic.
The nose art decals are printed on a one piece decal sheet, so you’ll
need to cut the decal free from the rest of the decal film…..patience is the
key here. The noseart decal is
beautifully printed with fantastic detail and lovely shading.
|The instructions are
clear and include 2 or 3 views of each aircraft and an extra 3 pages of text instructions is included
with a small bit of info about both the planes as well as helpful
tips for decal application.
|A very nice decal
sheet and sure to please the lucky 300 people that manage to buy one
of these limited edition sheets.
I would like to
thank Cutting Edge
Modelworks for providing me with this review sample.
