Iliad Design of Canada has released a new decal sheet based on the theme of celebrity pilots.



This is the third time that Iliad has explored this theme. This time around the four subjects cover a wide variety of eras, subjects and markings. Four options are offered:

  • Lancaster B.Mk.II (Hercules engines) flown by Robert Clothier, who was best known as Relic in the Canadian television series, The Beachcombers.

  • AU-1 Corsair flown by Marine pilot Jerry Coleman. He played in six World Series as an infielder for the Yankees, and then continued as a broadcaster for the Yankees and the San Diego Padres.

  • An Air National Guard F-4C Phantom II in wraparound SEA camouflage flown by Dean Martin's fifth child, Dean Paul Martin. Martin was killed when this Phantom crashed into the San Bernadino mountains during a snowstorm.

  • B-29 Superfortress flown by American film actor Tim Holt, who was best known for his role opposite Humphrey Bogart in The Treasure of the Sierra Madre.

Instructions are offered over a folded A4 sheet in full colour, with one side plus upper views, small reference photos and and notes on the history and camouflage of each option.



Decals are printed perfectly on my sample, and colours look good.

Thanks to Iliad Design for the review sample.
