New Yak-1b & P-51D decals from Exito Decals in 1/72 & 1/48

Recommended Posts

Exito Decals is proud to announce the first new releases in 2020. The seventh decal set is entitled “Yak Attack” and includes markings for three striking Yak-1b fighters, just in time for the recently released Arma Hobby, Brengun (1/72) and Zvezda (1/48) kits:
- Yakovlev Yak-1b, flown by Capt. Vladimir P. Pokrovskiy of 2nd GIAP / 6th IAD, Air Force of the Northern Fleet, probably late 1943.

- Yakovlev Yak-1b, coded ‘White 42’, flown by Snr. Lt. Garri A. Merkviladze of 152nd GIAP / 12th GIAD, 1st Ukrainian Front, Germany, spring 1945.

- Yakovlev Yak-1b, most likely coded ‘White 20’, flown by Snr. Lt. Fotiy Y. Morozov of 31st GIAP / 6th GIAD, 4th Ukrainian Front, first half of 1944.

None of these marking options have previously been reproduced in decals in an accurate manner. The instruction sheets include photos of all depicted aircraft, some of which you may have never seen before, or at least not reproduced in this quality. This set is available directly from the manufacturer:

- in 1/48 scale ($13.86) : https://exito.site/en_GB/p/EXITO-DECALS-ED48007-148-Yak-Attack-Yakovlev-Yak-1b/52856

- in 1/72 scale ($8.31) : https://exito.site/en_GB/p/EXITO-DECALS-ED72007-172-Yak-Attack-Yakovlev-Yak-1b/52858

P-51D Mustang obviously became one of the most popular modelling subjects of the last few months. Exito decided to join the trend with the new sheet entitled “Yoxford Girls”, which covers three P-51Ds from the famous 357th Fighter Group, all featuring some sexy nose art:
- P-51D-5-NA, s/n 44-13712, flown by Capt. Robert W. Foy of 363rd FS / 357th FG, Leiston, UK, late July-early August 1944.

- P-51D-5-NA, s/n 44-13691, flown by Lt. Arval J. Roberson of 362nd FS / 357th FG, Leiston, UK, early autumn 1944.

- P-51D-20-NA, s/n 44-63629, flown by Lt. John A. Miller of 363rd FS / 357th FG, Leiston, UK, late spring 1945.

‘Shady Lady’ has never been reproduced in decal form before, whilst ‘Passion Wagon’ did not receive enough attention from other manufacturers. Instruction sheets include photos of all depicted aircraft. This set is available directly from the manufacturer:

- in 1/48 scale ($13.86) : https://exito.site/en_GB/p/EXITO-DECALS-ED48008-148-Yoxford-Girls-North-American-P-51D-Mustang/52857

- in 1/72 scale ($8.31) : https://exito.site/en_GB/p/EXITO-DECALS-ED72008-172-Yoxford-Girls-North-American-P-51D-Mustang/52859

As previously, the decal sheets are printed by industry leader, Cartograf of Italy, which ensures top printing quality and ease of application. These are complemented by instructions that differ from the plain market standard. What you get are essentially high quality posters with accurate and inspiring illustrations. Each subject is presented on an A4-sized sheet, with large side aircraft profiles printed on the front, and the remaining artwork, photos and all necessary information laid out on the rear side. This way you not only get some cool decals for your model kit, but also attractive posters to adorn your man cave, at the same time!

Bit late to the party, but thanks for the tip. Just ordered the Yak-1 & Luftwaffe attackers sheets. This purchase was a nobrainer for me.

If I may suggest something: Arma's 1/72 kit is way better than 1/48 Accurate kit and its numerous incarnations...

Wow, love the Yaks! 

What's the best Yak-1b in 1/72 these days? Used to be there was nothing at all worth anything....


Arma Hobby kit is the best.
