First Look

Yellow-Wing Decals continues to amaze me with their well-researched line of decals. As those of you who've seen previous offerings, the premise of this decal maker was to present decal subjects for primarily US Navy and US Marine Corps aircraft prior to World War II, back when they all wore yellow wings.

Another worthwhile yellow-winged subject is the US Army Air Corps' P-26 Peashooter. In the course of researching for USN and USMC subjects, Wayne Tevlin also found some interesting markings for pre-WW2 USAAC fighters including the P-26.

Here we have three examples of the P-26 from the 17th Pursuit Group, one example from each of the assigned squadrons. The aircraft in this set:

  • P-26A, 11, 34 PS/17 PG
  • P-26A, 37, 73 PS/17 PG
  • P-26A, 72, 95 PS/17 PG

This set is printed by Microscale and none of the decals require multiple layers (one atop another) to replicate any given marking and each of the decals is in perfect register. It makes you wonder about those other decal companies that do multiple layered decals and blame Microscale...

Yellow Wing Decals can be purchased directly from their website at www.yellow-wingsdecals.com.

My sincere thanks to Yellow Wing Decals for this review sample!
