Newsletter 044: "Con-decorated" planes

"Con-decorated" planes

"Con-decorated" planes
Military aircraft decoration started right from their early stages. Examples of it are known from even before the World War I, and even today we can see them in both modern civil and combat planes. While Americans were not the pioneers in this form of "art", their decorations are the most widely spread and therefore known, mainly the ones on the World War II planes. Montex masks brings a few of them this week, such as the one used in the Curtiss P-40 Warhawk, along with many other novelties such as the brushes that will help the most daring modelers with the most adventurous decorations ;)

Make small works of art out of your kits with the decorations available at Aeronautiko :)
