First Look

PYN-up Decals is a decal line from Meteor Productions, the PYN standing for "Pick Your Noseart". So what's different about these decals? First, they've selected more intricate subjects, some of which have been done by other manufacturers. Second, the markings that are solid color by definition (national markings, ID codes, etc.) are provided as standard decals. Even the noseart backgrounds are provided as standard decals. Finally, the noseart is printed with a difference process which allows for photo-quality gradations of color instead of the pixel-dithered colors we're accustomed to in normal decals. The result is a stunning rendition of noseart that has not been mass-produced before!

Here are a pair of B-24 Liberators w/colorful nose art:

  • B-24J-120-CO, 42-109951, 98 BS/11 BG, 'Madame Pele'
  • B-24H-10-DT, 41-28746, 785 BS/466 BG, 2U, 'Jamaica?'

These are very limited production decals, with only 300 examples printed for each subject. You'd better get yours while the getting is still good!

My sincere thanks to Meteor Productions for this review sample!
