PYN-up Decals 32-003: Girls on Ponies part 1

Units: 4 FG & 20 FG




Scott Van Aken


After a long hiatus, Pyn-Up has their third sheet. This one covers a nice pair of P-51D Mustangs with the usual excellent nose art. There is no recommended kit, so I have to assume that if you have a 1/32 P-51D, you are going to be able to use this set.

First up is "Sweet Arlene", the aircraft of Arthur Bowers of the 334 FS/ 4 FG. It is in the Feb 1945 markings with lots of red on the rudder and nose. The sheet includes a mask so that you can get the nose markings right.

The other is an unnamed plane of Lt 'Moon' Mullins of the 55 FS/20 FG. This Mustang has no fin fillet and has been painted OD on the top of the fuselage and leading edge of the fin. The artwork is also backed with OD. Nose is in black with a black/white spinner.

The special nose art decals are provided in duplicate in case you need a spare. These are very thin and so a white background is provided to ensure you can see them once applied.

You'll also note that most of the markings have the background color separate to prevent registration problems. There are sufficient insignia for one aircraft.

As with all Cutting Edge products, the research is quite thorough and all that information is provided in with the decals to ensure that you have the most accurate presentation that is possible. These sheets are extremely limited to 300 copies so if you want it, you need to get it soon.
