Wings Decals 48-082: USN N2S-3
another nice sheet from Yellow Wings Decals and in this case it is a pair of
N2S-3 aircraft from the 1941 to 1942 time frame. Fortunately, we have a great
kit for this sheet in the form of the new Revell kit, though one could also use
the Lindberg version. The instructions sheet does not provide a preference, so I
have to assume that both kits are the same size.
The first option is from NAS Corpus Christi in May of 1942. This one has nice
red fuselage and wing stripes. Though the airframe is overall orange/yellow,
noet that the wheel hubs and lower fuselage are unpainted metal.
The second option is from NRAB Dallas in October 1942 and sports green fuselage
and wing bands. These wing bands were on the upper surface of the upper wing and
lower surface of the lower wing. The instructions suggest adding a drop or two
of red to commercially available orange-yellow paints.
The decals are superbly printed by Microscale and include tne lower wing walk
areas as well as prop stripes. Full placement and painting instructions are also
Yellow Wings for the review sample. You can get
them direct from
