1/285-1/600 US Star Aircraft Roundel (Blue & White Only)

Regular price $5.50 $0.00

The first military aviation insignias of the United States include a star used by the US Army Signal Corps Aviation Section, seen during the Pancho Villa punitive expedition, just over a year before American involvement in World War I began. The star was painted only on the vertical tail, in either red (the most often used color)[1] or blue (less likely, due to the strictly orthochromatic photography of that era, rendering the red star as a black one in period photos).  At the same time, the US Navy was using a blue anchor on the rudders of its seaplanes.

Used from May 1942 to June 1943, the Insignia Red Dot was removed to avoid confusion with the Japanese Hinomaru Roudnel
