First Look

Yellow Wing Decals has pushed out of their niche of 1/72 scale pre-war US Navy/USMC subjects. They've expanded into 1/32 and 1/72 scales and with this release, provide markings for two USN torpedo squadrons.

Yellow Wing Decals Yellow Wing Decals

This set provides provides all of the distinctive markings to replicate any of the 18 aircraft assigned to Torpedo 2 (VT-2) or Torpedo 3 (VT-3), 36 aircraft possibilities in all!

Actually, the set is designed for each of the six section leads in both squadrons. You can see in the decal image that the decal block for 2-T-4 (for example) has the white wing chevrons (you paint the cowl and fuselage bands yourself), the TBD-1 aircraft identifiers, and BuNo 0299. The US Navy identifications are located near the bottom along with spare numbers to allow for any of the non-section leads to be replicated as well.

For an explanation of section colors and markings, go here.

These decals are printed in excellent registration and clarity.

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!
