Pyn-up Decals 72-001: Liberated Ladies pt 1

Units: See Review




Scott Van Aken


Much to my delight, Pyn-Up has decided to expand its range into 1/72 sheets. This means that you'll be seeing several of the 1/48 sheets downsized into 1/72. It also means a few new ones such as this one on the B-24. For those who build in 1/72, this means that you can now use your Academy or even Airfix kits, though I dare say that you'll probably have to do a bit of modification to properly show the variants done. Both aircraft are in OD over Neutral Grey and like other Pyn-Up sheets, this one includes photos of the actual aircraft's nose art.

First up is 'Madam Pele' of the the 98 BS/11 BG. This B-24J-120 has three white stripes on the fin and appears to have very worn de-icer boots.

The other is a B-24H-10 from the 785 BS/466 BG. "Jamaica" is a play on the phrase "did you make her", referring to some obscure off duty enterprise...... This one has a red fin with a white stripe to add some color to the aircraft and has no de-icer boots on the wings. It also has a replacement panel on the outboard starboard engine.

As with all Pyn-up decals, the detail in the specially done nose art decals is superb. Each decal must be separately cut out and care needs to be taken when using it. This sheet is limited to a run of 300 so if you want to do the subjects, you'll have to grab yours as soon as you can before they sell out.
