First Look

Superscale International is well-known for their aftermarket decals. At one time these decals were produced under the Microscale brand before the business was split up, but even then Superscale decals were still printed by Microscale. Of course this company goes back many decades and the company more recently became part of Squadron's line-up of hobby products. This set was printed by Cartograf, so the times sure have changed!

This set was produced for the huge Hobby Boss 1/32 P-61 Black Widow kit. This set provides the essential markings to replicate one of your choice of two distinctive aircraft:

  • P-61B, 42-39532, 414 NFS, Pontedera, Italy, 'First Nighter'
  • P-61B, 42-39672, 422 NFS, France, 'Little Audrey'
  • P-61B, 42-39586, 418 NFS, Morotai Island, Indonesia, 'Black Panther'

The instructions provide color references to FS 595 paints. This set provides three interesting subject alternatives to the Hobby Boss kit.

My sincere thanks to Squadron Mail Order for this review sample!
