Super Scale International through Squadron Products continues its decal releases for HobbyBoss' excellent 1/32 P-61 with a set for three options for P-61B's. Inside the package, you get a page of full color instructions and a nicely done decal sheet printed by Cartograf.

The instruction sheet contains paint and more black. The planes are:

  • "First Nighter ", P-61B-15, S/N 42-39532, 414th NFS, Pontedera, Italy
    • Pilot Lt. George Jenkins, RO Lt Arthur Campbell
    • Credited with two locomotive kills and 23 freight cars
  • "Little Audrey", P-61B-15, S/N 42-39672, 422nd NFS, France 1944
    • Pilot Lt James Thompson
    • RO Joseph Downey
  • "Black Panther ", P-61B-15, S/N 42-359586, Morotai Islands, Indonesia
    • Pilot Lt. Stan Logan, RO George Kamlian

There are placement guides for the excellent nose art and unit markings and also the national insignia. The nose art in two cases are very well done pin-up girls and a large Black Panther!

The decals are beautiful and perfectly in register and also include propeller markings, plane data and pilot data. Cartograf makes excellent decals and I am sure these will apply very well.

An excellent set of markings that give much needed variation to the HobbyBoss kit. Highly recommended. My thanks to Squadron Products and IPMS/USA for the chance to review these decals.
