Zotz Decals continues with its line of fine quality decal sheets with this one depicting the Consolidated B-24L/M. The decals are available separately in 1/48 and 1/72 scales.

The decals are superbly printed with good colour saturation and excellent register.  As usual the carrier film is ultra thin.

The instruction sheet is in full colour.

The set contains marking for two aircraft as follows:

  • Consolidated B-24L-15 or B-24M-15 Serial number 44-449752 or 44-51051 “It Aint SO Funny” flown from the 5th AF, 43rd BG, 64th BS.  The aircraft was finished in overall natural metal with an Olive Drab anti glare panel.  The rudder has red and white horizontal stripes and a purple vertical stripe at the leading edge of the rudder. The fin has a diagonal black stripe.  The aircraft has right hand side nose art that is an amazing collection cartoon characters created by Sgt Sarkis Bartigan who also painted some other famous 43rd BG art works including “Mabel’s Labels” and “Cocktail Hour” that were included in earlier releases from Zotz.  Probably the most colourful Liberator of the war “It Aint So Funny” was a wonderful tribute to these popular cartoon characters of the time placed together on its nose art

  • Consolidated B-24M-FO Serial number 44-50396 “Pom Pom Express” flown from the 5th AF, 380th BG, 531st BS.  The aircraft was finished in overall natural metal with an Olive Drab anti glare panel.  The rudder is painted purple.  The aircraft has right hand side nose art that is a semi nude lingerie clad lady reclining on a red cloth.  Pom Pom was a local Mindoro (Philippine) euphemism for sex.  The artist was a Filipino that painted several other 380th BG aircraft as well.

This is a high quality product that offers colourful markings for your 1/48 or 1/72 scale Liberators.

Thanks to Eli from Zotz for the samples
