Cuties Part 1
Floyd S. Werner, Jr.
releases by Hasegawa and Amtech of various models of the Curtiss
P-40 have given aircraft modelers a "new" canvas to
work on. The large nose and tail of the P-40 were natural canvases
for unit artists.
This sheet contains markings
for a P-40F of the 79th Fighter Group from the MTO. It is painted
in a Dark Earth/Middle Stone/Azure Blue paint scheme with a
large nude on the tail. It is a very colorful machine. Also
included are markings for a P-40E from the 49th Fighter Group
in the Pacific. Overall Olive Drab with Neutral Gray undersides
this machine is unique in the positioning of the nude, between
the aft window and the national insignia.
The quality of the artwork is
just that- art. The nudes are wonderfully toned and very accurate.
They are the best renditions of the female form to come out
in decal form. You would have to reduce a Playboy photo to get
anything better. Besides the nudes, you also receive the remaining
individual markings and the national insignias for these airplanes.
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.
I highly recommend this sheet.
The decals can be obtained by contacting Meteor Productions
at email@example.com or

Thanks to Meteor Productions
