|Cons||Nothing noted||Skill Level||Basic|
BarracudaCals has returned with their sixth installment in their 1/48 scale aircraft series with this nice nose art selection of P-40E Warhawks. These subjects run the range of North Pacific, South Pacific, and China/Burma theaters.
This set provides an interesting cross-section of subjects:
- P-40E, 81, 9 FS/49 FG, Darwin, Australia, 1942, 'Skeeter'
- P-40E, 20, 343 FG, Aleutian Islands, AK, 1943
- P-40E, 85, 9 FS/49 FG, Darwin, Australia, 1942, 'Tarheel'
- P-40E, 7, 23 FG, Kunming, China, 1942, as flown by Colonel Robert Scott
The sheets are printed by Cartograf and are very sharp as well as in-register. The sheet comes with a nice set of maintenance stencils and good instructions on where everything goes. The instructions indicate that these markings are intended for the Hasegawa 1/48 P-40E kit.
My sincere thanks to BarracudaCals Decals for this review sample!
