First Look

Yellow-Wings Decals has entered the scene with an interesting specialty area - markings for USN Navy aircraft prior to World War II (hence the Yellow Wings name). These markings are printed by Microscale, so they are great quality by definition.

In this set, national markings are provided in 24" and 36" diameter roundels for the US Neutrality Patrol era. In addition, 45" and 48" roundels are included for the OS2U Kingfisher.

The set also includes several profiles and documentation to help you replicate the proper placement of the neutrality roundels to render an accurate model.
