First Look

Lifelike Decals from Japan turns out some colorful and nicely printed subjects. In this set, we have the first of a new series of B-24 Liberator nose art sets sized to work with either the Hasegawa or Academy kits. The decals are quite nicely done as you can see and provide some interesting subjects.
