Okay, so you have both the A-26B and A-26C from Monogram and Promodeler but were looking for something a little different. Well do not despair, the latest release from the PYN-up range of decals is covers a glass nose and a gun nose aircraft.

The markings between these two aircraft could not be any different from each other. The one aircraft, a B model, is overall flat black with a gun nose. It is named “Vesalite Lady” and typical of Korean war night bombers.

The other aircraft is a natural metal A-26C named “Nev’a Hoppen”. It has the glass nose and lacks the lower gun position. It would make a great looking kit. The nude is on the nose and it is typical of the nudes that adorned the Korean Conflict before the censors got involved.

You get national markings for one airplane.

Typical of the PYN-up decals, they are thin, opaque, and in perfect register. You must follow the instructions as the decals are very thin and can be fragile.

Highly Recommended
