First Look

Yellow-Wing Decals continues to amaze me with their well-researched line of decals. As those of you who've seen previous offerings, the premise of this decal maker was to present decal subjects for primarily US military aircraft prior to World War II, back when they all wore yellow wings.

This set provides three US Army Air Corps P-35 examples, one out of the 24th Pursuit Group just prior to Japan's attack, the other two out of the 1st Pursuit Group. These decals were sized for the Hobbycraft

The aircraft in this set:

  • P-35, 24P125, 24 PG, Philippines, 1941
  • P-35, PA13, 17 PS/1 PG, Selfridge Field, 1937
  • P-35, PA70, 94 PS/1 PG, Selfridge Field, 1937

This set is printed by Microscale and none of the decals require multiple layers (one atop another) to replicate any given marking and each of the decals is in perfect register. It makes you wonder about those other decal companies that do multiple layered decals and blame Microscale...

My sincere thanks to Yellow-Wings Decals for this review sample!
