Cutting Edge’s 1/48 scale “Thunderbolt Nose Art Part Two” supplies markings for four aircraft with suitably prominent nose art to add interest to Olive Drab and Neutral Gray subjects.

The first option, “White 81”, features a black and yellow diamond-checked tail, chequered cowl flaps and a red cowl ring trimmed in yellow. If that was not enough, the nose also displays a pistol-packing blonde on a field of red. All the markings, including the black and yellow tail markings, are supplied on the decal sheets.

This is a very colourful aircraft!

The remaining subjects display nose art and various theatre markings, including a white tail and yellow cowl for “The Pied Piper”, and white cowl rings with white tail stripes for “Sneezy” and an unnamed Bulldog.

All the decals on my review sample are in perfect register. The colours look accurate, and the carrier film is thin. No stencil markings are supplied.

This will be a popular sheet for anyone wanting to enliven an otherwise drably finished Razorback Thunderbolt.


Thanks to Cutting Edge Modelworks for the review sets.
