Stars in the Sky 3

1:72 Iliad Designs




This sheet is the third instalment in Iliad Designs' Stars in the Sky series. The first two sheets have given us aircraft flown by the likes of Jimmy Stewart, Clark Gable, Gene Rodenberry, Dan Rowan and Ted Williams. This sheet continues the themse, with four aicraft flown or crewed by Robert Clothier (Canadian stage and television actor, best known for the series 'The Beachcombers', Jerry Coleman (New York Yankees infielder), Dean Paul Martin (actor, entertainer, tennis player and son of Dean Martin) and Tim Holt (noted Western actor and co-star of The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, along with Humphrey Bogart). 
The featured aircraft, the order above are:

  • Lancaster II LL722 'Lady be Good';
  • AU-1 Corsair, VMA-223, US Navy, Korean War;
  • F-4C Phantom 64-0923, California Air National Guard; and
  • B-29 44-70018 'City of Monroe', 62nd Bombardment Squadron, 39th Bomb Group.

As we've come to expect from Iliad Design, the decals are good quality with sharp printing and bold, accurate colours. They look thin and glossy on the sheet, so they should perform well. 






This sheet is an intersesting concept which has been nicely executed. While none of the schemes are natural bedfellows, they represent something a little differnt to the usual schemes and who knows, they might just inspire you to get cracking on that Lancaster or Superfortress kit in the stash. Highly recommended.
