Aeromaster 48-016: European P-51D/K Mustangs

Units: Various




Scott Van Aken

This particular sheet has markings for four semi-famous aircraft/pilots. These are all unpainted metal P-51Ds with OD anti-glare panels except where noted. The recommended kit for 1993 was the Hasegawa kit, but since few of the decals are airframe sensitive, it should fit all the others released since.

First is Chuck Yeager's 'Glamorous Glen III' when he was with the 363 FS/357 FG in 1945. This plane is still sporting invasion stripes on the lower surfaces. 

Next is 'Prodigal Son' of Bart Tenore with the 356 FS/354 FG in 1944. Note that this plane does not have the extended fin fillet. You will have to paint the blue nose band.

With a green nose is Ray Wetmore's 'Daddy's Girl'. This aircraft was assigned to the 370 FS/359 FG.

Finally with a red nose and blue diamonds is 'Bobby Socks'. This was the plane of 359 FS/356 FG's Jack Brown. Note that the nose and spinner on this are yellow.

Decals are nicely printed and my experience with old Aeromaster sheets is generally quite good.
