1/285-1/600 US Star with Red Dot Aircraft Roundel

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 1919-1942 Center red circle now inscribed within a regular pentagon formed by inner vertices of star, making red smaller than first version. Colors were Flag Red and Flag Blue until late 20s when current colors of Insignia Red and Insignia Blue were specified
