Pull out your Academy or Airfix B-29 and blow the dust off it for this is a sheet that really needs to be put on your next B-29 model. This is especially true if you like doing Korean War aircraft. B-29s during that conflict were a bit more colorful than in WWII and they carried some pretty impressive nose art as well.

This one is called 'The Outlaw' as taken from a Jane Russell movie. Thanks to a lot of color film being used to photograph planes, we have pretty good reference material to work with and that is especially helpful for this aircraft. The modeler will have to paint the black fin band as well as the green fin tip, wing tips, nose band, nose gear doors and section above the wing roots. Fortunately, this is a big plane and it will be easy to do.

Thanks to it being a 1/72 sheet, insignia and such are provided so you have all you need right here. As always, a second set of nose art is provided in case it is needed.
