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 Mediterranean, Pacifc, and CBI theaters during World War II. This set provides a nice selection of colorful nose art and camouflage schemes, and in the case of 'Baby Blue Eyes', this set provides variations of markings for four different times between 1944-45..

This set is printed by Cartograf and you can see the artwork is sharp and in great register. The decals are sized for the Airfix 1/72 B-25C/D kit and the Hasegawa 1/72 B-25J kits.

You can purchase these decals directly from Lifelike Decals. My sincere thanks to Lifelike Decals for this review sample!
