Aeromaster's Marauding Mitchells Part 1 Decals
are available online from


Aeromaster’s new release of Marauding Mitchells part 1 48-683 is printed to the usual high standard that we come to expect from Aeromaster.

The artwork for the nose art has been well defined with the nose art for Betty’s Dream being provided as an outline and a template provided on the instruction sheet to mask up and paint the solid base colour. The colour reference sheet provided is excellent giving good colour reference and decal placement.

Markings are provided for two aircraft listed below.

  • Rita’s Wagon a B-25D-5 of the 500th BS flown by Lt Colonel Max H Mortensen in Olive Drab over Neutral Gray with red cowling lips.

  • Betty’s Dream a B-25J-30 of the 499th Bomb Squadron 345th Bomb Group based in the Philippines in 1945 and flown by Lt Charles E Rice Jr. The colours are olive drab over Neutral Gray with a very dark blue bat over the nose and dark blue engine cowl lips.

The decals are in perfect register and sharply printed. The carrier film is very thin and should disappear under a coating of clear finish.

Highly Recommended.

Thanks to Eagle Strike / Aeromaster  for the review samples
