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!

P-61A/B P-61A/B

This set was produced for either the new Great Wall Hobby kits or the classic Revell-Monogram kit. The three aircraft featured in this set include:

  • P-61A-11-NO, 42-5613, 548 NFS, Iwo Jima, 1944, 'Midnite Madness'
  • P-61A-11-NO, 42-5609, 548 NFS, Iwo Jima, 1944, 'Bat Outa Hell'
  • P-61B-1-NO, 42-39450, 419 NFS, Guadalcanal, 1944, 'Lady Luck'

The set provides sufficient national markings and stencils for two of the three examples. The instructions provide color references to FS 595 paints. These are some nice alternative subjects to the markings supplied by the original kits.

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