B-52s No. 1.. This extremely rare set features FIVE BUFFs: B-52G-95-BW, 58-0183, “Valkyrie” of the 93 BW, one of the SECRET SQUIRREL aircraft that flew the very first bombing mission on the first night of the first Gulf War, now on display at the Pima Air Museum. Next is B-52D-35-BW, 56-0672, with Snoopy cartoon artwork “Night Missions Blogh!!” of the 99 BW, Andersen AFB, Guam, 1968. Another Vietnam combat jet is B-52D-35-BW, 56-0677, with a large sharkmouth, from the 43 SW, Andersen AFB, Guam (this is a different jet – and different artwork – from the Monogram/Revell kit), 1968. Next comes B-52H-160-BW, “Mud BUFF” of the 2 BW/96 BS, Barksdale AFB, May 1995. And sporting the red “Barksdale” fin stripe. The final subject is yet another Vietnam vet, B-52D-60-BO, 55-0103, with another nearly unknown Snoopy cartoon character, “Happiness Is Home,” again from the 99 BW, Andersen AFB, Guam, 1968. Since nose art was extremely rare on Vietnam War BUFFs, these three B-52Ds will make remarkable additions to your collection!

PYND72012

PYN-up Decals B-17F Miss Ouachita & B-17G Little Miss Mischief. You demanded unique and remarkable decal schemes for your models, and this set certainly delivers. The truly "patchwork" B-17G-35-VE named "Little Miss Mischief" is know to us all for having been heavily featured in one of the first Squadron/Signal "In Action" books on the B-17. Everybody remembers this one! This amazing markings set is based on review of several newly-uncovered photos, including a couple in color. In fact, it breaks new research ground on the ship’s markings and camouflage, including the fact that the left outer wing was a fully camouflaged replacement (obviously the aft fuselage, which came from a crash-landed fully camouflaged B-17G), the natural metal aft crew entry door and battle damage repair panels, the overpainted but still visible previous code letters, etc. You’ll get the documentation on the undersized individual code letter "F" on the left side as well as the oddly spaced and slanted "DF" codes on the right side. You get confirmation the waist windows were NOT staggered on this bird, as sometimes reported, and no Pumpkin (Cheyenne) tail turret was fitted as often seen in profile paintings. You get the very faded red bomb mission markings on the PYN-up sheet. This will be a "contest killer" when you build it! The second ship in this set is the equally famous B-17F-20-DL "Miss Ouachita" (pronounced "WASH-it-tah") which was shot down by Heinz Baer on 21 Feb 44. The Luftwaffe propaganda photos of Baer’s visit to the bellylanded Fortress have been published far and wide. Very careful review of the many photos, some available only from some fairly obscure sources, revealed and corrected a great deal of previously published information. You’ll note the overpainted previous unit markings on the fuselage, and the fact her current codes, OR*Q (she was assigned to the 91 BG/323 BS), were in fact painted on at the time she went down. You can see the odd shape of the individual code letter "Q" on the fin, the personal names on the front fuselage, and the fact that she had TWO aircraft data blocks stenciled on the nose (the original was partially oversprayed due to damage repair)! Note the B-17E type top turret, the lack of a blown astrodome. Finally, careful study of the Luftwaffe photos prove this ship did NOT have the red fin and wingtips often shown in profile paintings. In any case, they were not instituted until July 1944, more than five months after she was shot down. I can tell you with some pride that reviewers have acknowledged this is the most accurate and complete decal set ever produced for Little Miss Mischief and Miss Ouachita.

Fw 190 Nose Art Special. Four magnificent mid-war 190s with nose art grace this set. First is the Fw 190 A-6, White 5, flown by Rudolf Huebl with 1./JG 1 during 1943. His personal insignia with the human head and nickname "Grog!" was painted under the canopy and three kill markings on the fin, and the checkerboard cowling and stylized eagle painted over the exhaust area are noteworthy. The second ship is another Fw 190 A-6 White 9, flown by Heinz-Guenther Lueck in 1./JG 1 during 1943. Another checkerboard-cowled bird, this one featured Lueck’s scotty dog insignia and nickname "Lucki" along with two kill markings painted on the rudder. Next is an Fw 190 A-7, White 20, flown by Hptm Schnoor of 1./JG 1 in April 1944. We give you Schnoor’s personal "double M" insignia in several color options since everybody is interpreting black & white photos and the actual color is not documented. The final subject in this set has Franz Steiner’s memorable "crapping birdie" insignia painted under the cockpit. It was an Fw 190 A-6, Red 13, of J.Gr.West (Fighter Replacement Group West).

B-52H "Someplace Special" & B-52G "SAC Time". This set covers TWO famous BUFFS. First is B-52H-165-BW, 60-0057, "Someplace Special" with D-Day stripes, WW II codes C*5D & 410 BG black/white rudder stripes. Special paint job for the RAF Bombing Competition, RAF Marham, July 1981. B-52G-95-BW, 58-0164, "SAC Time," 1708th BW (P), Jedda, Saudi Arabia, Operation Desert Storm. Aircraft from the 416th BMW, Griffis AFB. On a personal note, this decal set is very special to me because the "Someplace Special" jet from the 410th BMW was inspired by and actually flown by my modeling friend Dan Rees, who passed away from cancer last year. Dan, I know you’re up there modeling away, and this BUFF’s for you, buddy! Only a handful left.

This jet was one of the last SEA BUFFs to carry nose art; at the time our photos were taken, it was the only B-52 at U-Tapao that still had nose art; B-52F-65-BW, 57-0144, "Mekong Express," 320 BW/454 BS, Andersen AFB, Guam, 1966.

SR-71 Blackbird. As you would expect, this was one of our most popular decal sets ever. ONLY 17 SETS AVAILABLE! Not only does this stunning decal set include markings for FOURTEEN jets, you also get a truly amazing bonus decal! This set has so many subjects I was forced to split them into two separate sheets in 1/48 scale, but for you I was able to jam ALL the markings into one 1/72 set. Let’s start with the bonus: a HUGE and dramatic Habu (cobra) marking applied to the nose top of as-yet unidentified SR-71. OK, since it would not show up in side view photos, we can’t tell you which jet this was on, but it was TOO COOL to ignore . . . and when the jet is identified, have at it! The full subjects included are SR-71A, 61-7958, with a large Habu character on the fins; SR-71A, 61-7962, "R.I.P. Detachment 1;" SR-71A, 61-7962, with a pirate skull & crossbones marked on the fins; SR-71A, 61-7971, with a surfing "Spuds MacKenzie" (Budweiser beer mascot dog from the 1980s) chalked on the fin; SR-71A, 61-7972, "Charlie’s Problem" with a very pregnant Lucy cartoon character actually painted on the fins; SR-71A, 61-7974, "Ichi Ban" (Japanese for "number one" or "the best"), a very famous Blackbird with a large mission markings scoreboard for Vietnam overflights (each mission marking is a little Habu snake!); SR-71A, 61-7974, "Leprechaun" was the jet formerly marked "Ichi Ban;" SR-71A, 61-7976, with extremely cool "snarling cat" artwork on the fins – the artwork is quite different on each side; SR-71A, 61-7978, "Rapid Rabbit" with the Playboy Bunny logo on the fin, also a Vietnam overflight veteran during the same time period as "Ichi Ban" and almost certainly also carrying a large scoreboard of Habu mission markings; SR-71A, 61-7979, wearing the most dramatic markings ever applied to a Habu: "Night Hawk," with similar but different art on each side; SR-71A, 61-7980, with a "farewell" dartboard logo on the fin; SR-71A, 61-7980, "Rosemary’s Baby-San," actually painted both fins; a two-seat SR-71B, 61-7956, with a very cute "Gumby" character painted on the left fin only; and finally the famous YF-12A, 60-6936, a record flights bird featuring three YF-12 top view silhouettes just below the canopy on each side commemorating the three world records earned in May 1965 (the silhouettes do NOT have anything to do with the AIM-47 Phoenix missile as has sometimes been reported). Whew! Now THAT’S a decal set!

PYN-up Decals B-26 Marauding Babes #2. This set features two famous Marauders. First is one of the most elaborate (and to my mind, most beautiful) artwork ever applied to any WW II aircraft. B-26B-50-MA "Hard To Get" had completely different – and very large — swimsuit-clad beauties painted on each side of the nose . Flown by Maj Delwin D. Bentley, commander of the 497th BS, 344th BG, Stanstead, England, in 1944, obviously no expense was spared to create this flying masterpiece. The other bird is the oft-photographed B-26C-40-MO, "Belle Ringer," of the 320 BG/441 BS, in Dark Olive Drab over Neutral Gray. This is a fun scheme for a modeler, as the paint was extremely worn and the old D-Day stripes above the wings are easily seen through the worn OD overpaint. Another interesting point is that the crew ran out of space on the fuselage for additional mission markings, so they were continued on the nose gear door!

Beaufighters #2. This set includes five rather colorful Beaus, including the very famous all-black Beaufighter If R2101, NG•R, flown by John Cunningham and Jimmy Rawnsley to score their 12th night victory on 6 May 1941, featuring their kill markings scoreboard above the fin flash. The next is a IVf of the Dominican Air Force in 1949 and featuring the large extended fin strake as normally seen on the Beaufighter X. The third bird is a Merlin-powered Mk IIf in overall black with red code letters, YD•G, R2404. Next is an Australian Mk.21, LS•K, A8-112, featuring overall RAAF Dark Green (some sources claim Foliage Green) and on the rudder a clever Goofy cartoon character riding a rocket and swinging a lasso above his head. The final subject is again a Cunningham & Rawnsley mount, this time an all-black If NG•R, T4625, the bird they flew for their 13th kill, and sporting 13 kill markings above the fin flash.

Fw 190A/D #2. One of the subjects of this set is Fw 190A-5 as flown by the US Navy at NAS Patuxent River, VA, in an overall white scheme with red cowl, fuselage & wing stripes, and a red/white/blue striped rudder. Next is a very interesting A-8, Yellow Bar + 12, in RLM 74/75/76 but with a faded RLM 75 fuselage sporting large patches of RLM 74 covering previous tactical markings. Another A-8, this time from I/JG 300, White 5, is next and sports the large yellow/red RV band of JG 300. Note this ship has frequently been misidentified as one from JG 5 with a yellow/black RV band, based on misinterpretation of a photo taken with orthochromatic film, and the error has been replicated many times over the years. Other photos show this was definitely a 301 bird. The final subject is an Fw 190D-9, White 15, sporting an interesting late-war camouflage scheme that was most likely RLM 81/82/83. Only 26 sets still available.

Late War Bf 109G/Ks. Four subjects in this set, starting with a Bf 109G-10AS, Yellow 2, sporting large white/green checkerboard RV band. Next is Bf 109G-10, WNr.784930, Green 1, Stab/JG 77, with the green/white RV band of JG 77. A very interesting Bf 109K-4, Yellow 1 Bar, III./JG 27, with the wide green RV band and new (probably) RLM 76 patches painting out previous tactical markings. Since the rudder was missing when this bird was photographed, it could have had different styles of camouflage, any of which make this a remarkable ship. The final subject is Bf 109G-14, WNr.464549, White 21 Bar, displaying a yellow nose band and rudder and very unusual "21" tactical number.

Bf 109E Emils #5. There are five very interesting Emils in this set, the first being Bf 109E-1, 6./JG 52, Yellow 2, 1940, with a yellow rudder & cowl, which also sports the unit’s blue/white stylized eagle. It also has evidence of an earlier tactical number that was painted out, with the Yellow 2 being farther forward than usual. Next is a surprising Bf 109E-1 III./JG 53, White 11 + I, Sept 1940. This bird has a broad red cowl stripe, and although it was an E-1, the canopy had been replaced with a "square" type. Next is the even more surprising Bf 109E-4, White 5 + I, of 7./JG 53 flown by H. G. Schulte. This ship had a white rudder and cowling, but a previously applied red cowl stripe is bleeding through the white paint. Even more unusual is the fact that the swastika was painted out! Next is the striking Bf 109E-3, Yellow 15, of 3./JG 52 flown by Karl Wolff, Oct 1940. This bird not only had a white cowl, the white continued all the way back to the windscreen! The wingtips and rudder where also white. The final subject is Bf 109E-3, Yellow 5, of II./JG 52 flown by Paul Gutbrod in Aug 1940. This bird had a yellow cowl and rudder, and also featured the pilot’s name painted under the canopy.

FOUR BUFFs: B-52G-120-BW, 59-2592, "The Pink Panther," 92 SAW, Fairchild AFB, WA. This jet was painted in the standard SIOP scheme, with special Pink Panther markings for the 1971 SAC Bomb Comp added in honor of the recently released and extremely popular Peter Sellers movie of the same name. Please note that although the movie Pink Panther was really pink, on this jet it was painted a pale violet color; B-52H-125-BW, 60-0001, "Memphis Belle IV," 2nd Wing flagship, Barksdale AFB, LA, 1996; B-52G-100-BW, 58-0189, "Special Kay," 379 BW, 1980 RAF Bomb Comp. Note the bomb striking the RAF roundel on the right side of the nose. The artwork on this jet was exceptionally unusual for a USAF aircraft in 1980!; B-52G-80-BW, 57-6485, "The Big Stick," 97 BW. This jet wears the standard SAC SIOP scheme, but with the FS 36118 dark gray overpaint of the nose and front fuselage. This set was inspired by my good friend Dan Rees, who passed away earlier this year. Shoot for the stars, buddy!

PYN-up Decals B-17 Fortress Chicks Part 2. Truly one of the most dramatically marked B-17s ever, "Ruby’s Raiders," was a B-17G-50-DL. Cpl Ploss of the 385th Bomb Group painted the dazzling nose art especially for the ceremony honoring Cpl Ruby Newell of the 3rd Bomb Division staff, who had been voted as the most beautiful WAC (Woman’s Army Corps) in the ETO by a Stars & Stripes readers poll. The 385th’s bold red checkerboard tail and broad wing and tail stripes only added to the attention this ship demanded. Brand-new at the time of the ceremony and carrying serial 44-6483, aircraft letter G, she was flown a various times by Frank Blackwell and Harold C. Prang, 550 BS/385 BG, Great Ashford, England, Spring 1945.

PYN-up Decals P-47 Beautiful Jugs Part 1. This set has gone on eBay for over $250. Without doubt the most famous Thunderbolt ever, P-47N-1-RE, 44-88043, "Short Snorter/2 Big And Too Heavy" has been the subject of a bazillion kit and aftermarket decals. Here, for the first time, you’ll get complete and accurate markings that fully capture the beauty and complexity of the shaded nose art and other markings. Obviously this set includes the completely different but equally stunning nose art for each side. Marked Black 21, this bird was assigned to the 333 FS/318 FG, in August 1945 on Ie Shima, Ryukyu Islands. The second Jug in this set is the presentation ship "In The Mood/"Jackson County, Michigan, Fighter" flown by Capt Gerald Johnson of the 61st FS/56th FG. This was a P-47D-1-RE, 42-7877, coded HV*D at Halesworth in the late Summer of 1943. This one was a huge research project and resulted in such fine touches as the correct shape of not only the "D" individual aircraft letter, but also the "HV" code painted on the right side (the left side had no squadron codes).

PYN-up Decals B-17 Fortress Chicks Part 3. Two extremely famous and popular Forts grace this set. First is B-17F-25-DL, 42-3082, "Double Trouble," Lt William Winnesheik, 333 BS/94 BG, Rougham, England, October 1943. This ship was assigned to the unit from 10 June 1943 to 4 October 1943, when it crash landed at Margate, England, after a combat mission to St. Dizier, France. She was salvaged after the crash and in spite of the amazing nose art never flew again. The bomb group marking on the fin is very interesting! No color photos of this ship’s tail have been found, but there are several black & white photos available. The official 8th Air Force directive required the unit letter (in this case "A") be painted in Insignia Blue on a white square, but it was DEFINITELY NOT blue on this plane. This is easily seen by comparing the tonal value of the "A" to the tonal value of the national insignia on the fuselage. I’ve seen at least one color photo that proves, amazingly, that in some cases a YELLOW letter was painted on the white square, which is ridiculous. However, this may have been the case for "Double Trouble," or possibly it could have been a light gray letter-which is also ridiculous. Regardless of how nonsensical it is, there are many documented instances of light-colored letters that are clearly not Insignia Blue or Black on white geometric bases in more than one combat group. Dumbfounding! The second ship is the exceptionally famous B-17G-30-BO "Our Gal Sal" from the 351 BS/100 BG, Thorpe Abbotts, England. Sal was queen of the "Bloody Hundredth" with her 135 combat missions giving her the distinction of being the longest serving plane in the unit. The name "Our Gal Sal" was inspired by the 1942 move of the same name starring Rita Hayworth. At the request of her first crew, captained by Robert J. Shoens, unit artist Frank Stevens painted the "Sal" artwork on standard aircraft canvas-the type used to cover movable control surfaces, and then glued it to the side of the nose. This created the strange "double halo" of olive green color around the artwork. It worked well, however, and the canvas did not blow off in the slipstream! At the time shown here, her 60th mission (the scheme best documented in color and black & white photos), her paintwork was very beat up and her chin turret, originally Neutral Gray, had been replaced by a newer unit in natural metal. Although the 100th is reputed to have used "blue gray" unit codes on the fuselage, color photos absolutely confirm that "Sal" had light gray codes. At least one widely distributed source claims the mission markings began on one side of the plane and continued around to the other side, and the profile painting in that source-while pretty-shows a huge number of mission markings continuing all the way back along the fuselage almost to the tail. The 100th BG historian confirmed for us this is completely bogus and the 100th’s practice was to mirror the mission markings on both sides of the nose. Sal was eventually scrapped at Kingman, Arizona. Interestingly, her bomb mission markings had been completely repainted very late or at the end of the war and in the boneyard she sported a long long line of white mission markings on a dark stripe background (these markings are not included here). We’re especially pleased that Mr Shoens and the 100th BG historian guided us on this project!

B-52s #5. FIVE BUFFs! B-52G-85-BW, 57-6492, "Old Crow Express," 379 BW. Total of 51 missions from Jeddah during Operation Desert Storm; B-52H-BW, 61-0022, "Yosemite Sam," 319 BW. This was one of at least two B-52Hs from the 319th with this tail marking to participate in the 1981 GREAT STRIKE (RAF Bombing Competition) at RAF Marham; B-52G-120-BW, 59-2594, "Memphis Belle III," 97 BW. This was undoubtedly the fanciest Memphis Belle artwork ever carried on a real Air Force aircraft, and should not be confused with B-52G 59-2584, which also carried the name "Memphis Belle III." Although transferred to the 2nd Wing shortly before the plane was retired, it was with the 97th she flew her Desert Storm combat missions; B-52G-100-BW, 58-0210, "Conceived For Liberty," 93 BW, August 1984. Although the exact circumstances and date of the artwork on this jet are unknown, this is without doubt the most amazing artwork ever applied to a SAC bomber! It was carried on the right side of the nose only. B-52G-110-BW, 58-0235, "Spirit of Mt Rushmore," 28 BMW, Ellsworth AFB, 1972. This jet carried these markings during the 1972 RAF Bomb Comp, where the crew won the BLUE STEEL award for best combined bombing score.
