Aussie Decals has released a new sheet in 1/72 scale for Australian B-24 Liberators. The subjects are:

  • a B-24M, A72-166 GR-X of 24 Sqn, Balikpapan, 1945. This aircraft has a large black chevron on the rudder and nose art comprising a Kookaburra sitting on a Boomerang superimposed over a yellow map of Australia. It is a shame they couldn't squeeze on a few more national icons!

  • a B-24L, A72-151, SJ-M of 25 Sqn, Corruna Downs, Western Australia, 1945. This aircraft has a Black Swan painted on the outside of each fin.

  • a B-24J, A-72-33, of 7 OTU at Tocumwal, NSW, 1945.

The decals are perfectly printed with very thin-looking carrier film.

Instructions are supplied on a double sided, black and white sheet. Each side of all three subjects are illustrated.

Aussie Decals' new Liberator release offers some interestingly different subjects for modellers wanting to build Academy's B-24s.

Recommended.

Thanks to Peter from Aussie Decals for the review sample.


Aussie Decals are available at hobby shops and retailers including Snowy Mountains Models
