First Look

Lifelike Decals from Japan turns out some colorful and nicely printed subjects. In this set, we have a selection of colorful B-25 Mitchells from the 345th Bomb Group deployed to the South Pacific during World War II. This set depicts the colorful markings worn by the Pacific Straffers of the 345th, including one aircraft shown with two different nose art schemes.
